Winter is still with us, as cold air is expected to keep temperatures well below normal for the next few days
It may be Spring, but Winter has not gone away yet.
National Weather Service forecaster Tim Destri says cold air associated with snowstorms in the north has made its way down to the Gulf Coast, and it's possible record lows could be set on the northshore over the next two nights.
"The next two nights we are expecting some temperatures probably down near freezing or even a little bit below on some of those northshore areas, and then on the southshore, some upper 30s will be possible," Destri said.
35 degrees is the record low for Slidell for March 26 and 27. Low temperatures this time of year are normally in the 50s.
But the end of the cold weather is in sight.
"It looks like we're probably gonna get a pretty good break, at least for a week or so. As we get into April, there's likely to be additional cold fronts that will move through. They're not as likely to have as much punch, as much cold air," Destri said.
