Winter weather moves into area


Much of northern and central Webster Parish awakened to a wintry mix of snow and freezing drizzle this morning, but by 8 a.m. not much was sticking or causing road problems.

"I'd say we dodged a bullet," City of Minden Public Works Director George Rolfe said. "We don't even need any sanding (on roads) at this point. The pavement is warm and nothing's freezing. Now that may change."

According to the National Weather Service, the precipitation was scheduled to stop around noon, but with the low temperature dropping to around 24 degrees Farenheit tonight, Rolfe said his only concern was any moisture on trees or roads that may freeze.

Tuesday, there is a slight chance of freezing rain before 9 a.m., but the rest of the week should see some warmer temperatures.
