...COLDEST AIR OF THE SEASON EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND...

THERE ARE INDICATIONS THAT VERY COLD AIR BOTTLED IN NORTHERN
CANADA WILL BE MOVING SOUTHWARD WELL INTO THE UNITED STATES LATE
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. AT THIS TIME IT APPEARS THAT A HARD FREEZE IS
POSSIBLE SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING MAINLY ACROSS SOUTHWEST
MISSISSIPPI...EAST-CENTRAL AND UPPER SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA. A LIGHT
FREEZE MAY EXTEND AS FAR SOUTH AS THE COASTAL MARSHES AND ALONG
THE MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST. VERY STRONG WIND GUSTS WILL ALSO
PRODUCE UNCOMFORTABLE WIND CHILLS ACROSS THE REGION DURING THE
WEEKEND...AT TIMES AS LOW AS THE MIDDLE TEENS.

RESIDENTS ACROSS SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA AND SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI
SHOULD PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS OVER
THE NEXT FEW DAYS. NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO REVIEW YOUR PREPARATION
PLANS FOR COLD TEMPERATURES...PARTICULARLY FOR THE CHANGES IN
YOUR ENVIRONMENT AND SURROUDINGS SINCE HURRICANE KATRINA. FOR
PERSONS LIVING IN PORTABLE HOMES AND TRAILERS...REVIEW WHATEVER
PRECAUTIONS ARE NEEDED TO AVOID FREEZE DAMAGE TO EXPOSED PIPES AND
BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTIONS IF THE COLD WEATHER ONSETS THIS
WEEKEND.

IN ADDITION...THERE WILL BE AN EXTRAORDINARILY HIGH RISK OF FIRES
DURING THIS PERIOD...DUE IN PART TO EXTENSIVE USE OF HEATERS AND
STRONG WINDS THAT WILL BE ACCOMPANYING THE COLD TEMPERATURES. TAKE
APPROPRIATE MEASURES TO REMOVE FLAMMABLES AND FIRE PRONE MATERIALS
WELL AWAY FROM HEAT SOURCES.

STAY TUNED THROUGHOUT THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK FOR LATER
STATEMENTS THAT WILL DETAIL THE IMPACTS AS WE MOVE CLOSER TO THIS
POTENTIALLY VERY COLD AND BLUSTERY WEEKEND.
