Hard Freeze Warning Updated

Sent Sat, Feb 20 @ 3:37am

Hard Freeze Warning issued February 20 at 3:22AM CST until February 20 at 10:00AM CST by NWS Shreveport LA

* WHAT...For the Hard Freeze Warning, sub-freezing temperatures as
low as the mid teens. For the Freezing Fog Advisory, visibility
one quarter mile or less in freezing fog.

* WHERE...Portions of northwest Louisiana and east and northeast
Texas.

* WHEN...Until 10 AM CST this morning.

* IMPACTS...Hard freeze conditions will result in damage to
exposed pipes and may result in additional water main breaks.
Freezing fog will result in hazardous driving conditions due to
low visibility and potential additional frost on bridges where
snow and ice had previously been cleared.

Take steps now to make plans for how you will remain warm
tonight. To prevent additional bursting of outdoor water pipes
they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those
that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover
above-ground pipes to protect them from freezing.

If driving, slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of
distance ahead of you. Also, be alert for slippery conditions,
especially on bridge decks and where snow and ice lingers on road
surfaces.
