The city of New Orleans and other cities in southeastern Louisiana will be under a Winter Storm Watch that goes into effect at 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 28, 2014.

The Winter Storm Watch will remain in effect through Wednesday morning at 6:00 a.m. and may possibly be extended.

Significant amounts of freezing rain, sleet, and even snow is expected to fall after midnight on Tuesday night, leaving road conditions dangerous with ice and low visibility for drivers.

Schools are already closing in southern Louisiana due to the upcoming storm. Check your local news for business closings, and road and highway closures if you have to get out on the road.

The local weather forecast for New Orleans is calling for scattered rain today with winds possible up to 20 mph. Overnight it will remain partly cloudy with winds up to 20 mph with a low of 42 degrees.

Tuesday's high is expected to top out at 30 degrees with snow, sleet, and a wintery mix starting early in the morning, turning to rain and possible wintery mix of sleet and rain for the afternoon. Winds up to 20 mph will make the temperatures outdoors feel even colder.

The winter mix could last until Wednesday morning before a high pressure system moves through the area bringing higher temperatures.

Residents should stay home and off the roads if at all possible. This storm is expected to be much worse than the winter storm that hit southern Louisiana last week, closing roads, schools and businesses for the day.
