Get ready for the big chill again tonight.  

"A hard freeze to wake up to," says WWL-TV meteorologist Alexandra Cranford.  "Protect pipes, as well as plants, pets, and people."   

Tonight those temperatures will dip in the mid 20s on the southshore and north of the lake around 17 degrees, and it could be the coldest we've seen in 4 years.   

It will continue to stay cold tomorrow with temps close to 40s for highs.
