A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the central Louisiana parishes including Vernon, Rapides, and Avoyelles until 8am Wednesday. Some light freezing rain has occurred in those areas this morning and temperatures are expected to hover around freezing most of the day.
Another round of rain and freezing rain is expected to develop this afternoon and evening over those same areas, but temperatures are expected to drop close to the freezing point along and north of the US 190 corridor. Therefore, the Winter Weather Advisory will extend to cover Beauregard, Allen, Evangeline, and St. Landry parishes starting at 6pm. Some freezing rain can be expected, but accumulations will be light and confined to bridges, overpasses, and other elevated surfaces.
