Folks aren't lingering outdoors this morning unless they have to. It's one of the coldest days in year for metro New Orleans. Highs will only reach the upper 30s today and wind chills will be in the teens and 20s.
"Yes sir! It's real cold!" one frigid commuter told WWL First News, as all around town, folks wrapped up tight.
"Yeah, definitely since that flu's going around, I don't want to catch that," another commuter told us. And people say they're wrapping up their homes, too, with tomorrow's lows down to the low 20s south of the lake and mid teens on the Northshore.
