NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Governments and school systems are calling rare snow days and people are stocking up on supplies as arctic air brings a forecast of at least an inch of snow in central and south Louisiana, and up to a half-inch of freezing rain in the New Orleans area.
The National Weather Service says a mixture of sleet and light snow is likely to start late Monday along and south of a line from Mansfield to Columbia, turning to snow early Tuesday and continuing all day.
At least a quarter-inch of ice and one to four inches of snow or sleet is forecast in Acadiana, with at least an inch of snow plus freezing rain likely in the southeast. The weather service says freezing rain is most likely south of Lake Pontchartrain.
