Eyeing An Early March Freeze…

A passing cold front Monday evening will bring about the end of any rainfall and usher in cool and windy weather for Tuesday.  An even stronger blast of cold air arrives for the end of the week and weekend.  This is one computer model’s projection of the temperature at 850 mb, or about 4,500′ for us, this Saturday morning.  The eastern half of the country will be unseasonably cold, which may lead to a freeze in Acadiana, especially Saturday night.  At this point we’re forecasting a low of 31° for Sunday morning, which means the Hwy 190 corridor may dip into the upper 20s and Alexandria may fall into the mid 20s.  While such cold in early-March is unusual, it’s not unprecedented.  In fact, the record low for Lafayette Sunday is 25° set in 1980, while Monday’s record is 22°, also set in 1980.
