Central Louisiana awoke to a cold start to begin a new business and school week. Folks reached for jackets and sweaters as they headed out the door.
Morning low temperatures ranged through the 30s with a few locations reporting a light freeze. The lowest reading came from Leesville with 30 degrees. Other sites recording a light freeze were Winnfield, Jena, and Ball/Tioga at 31 degrees and Natchez, Miss., Bellwood, and Fairfield at 32. Elsewhere, frost was a common sight.
Ample sunshine warmed temperatures into the 60s. Monday night promises to another cold one with lows again ranging through the 30s. A few thermometers will touch 32 while most other locations stay above freezing but will see frost again.
Enjoy the delightful fall weather-a warming trend is coming soon.
