BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A hard freeze is expected for each of the next two mornings with temperatures likely to be at or below freezing for 10 to 14 hours across metro Baton Rouge.

Freeze durations will be even longer for communities north and east of the Red Stick. However, there is a little good news: it stays dry through the weekend and we get plenty of sunshine which will push daytime temperatures into the upper 40°s to low 50°s on Saturday and into the mid 50°s on Sunday. That will provide some relief after the bitterly cold mornings.

Be mindful of the four Ps: people, pets, plants, and the pipes. If you haven’t had the chance to get the pipes wrapped for this weekend, be sure to let them drip for both freezes. Many of you can expect a light freeze for Monday morning too, as we await our next rainmaker.

Rain is likely late Monday into early Tuesday as a low tracks from west to east across the northern Gulf. A cold front will be heading southward at nearly the same time and the two features will mean another shot of cold weather as we get into the latter half of next week. Indeed, the forecast through the end of January continues to display cooler-than-normal temperatures to close out the month.
