Cold front to blow through Southeast Texas
The National Weather Service is tracking a cold front moving across the region as of 3:00 pm. Behind the front, temperatures are dropping into the 40s this afternoon with strong northwest winds of 15 to 20 mph, with gusts of 30 to 40 mph.
The bigger problem, however, is as temperatures fall at or below 32 F, wet areas on elevated roads and bridges could freeze over. This could be a problem in parts of east Texas and central Louisiana, along and north of the US 190 corridor.
Temperatures are expected to remain above freezing tonight along the I-10 corridor from Beaumont to Lake Charles and Lafayette, so no icy spots on roads are expected in this area.
Tuesday will be dry, but cold with highs only in the 40s, falling to around 40 by 6:00 pm. However with north winds of 10 mph, it will feel colder – in the 30s Tuesday evening.
