Winter Storm Warning

URGENT – WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA
403 AM CST Sun Feb 14 2021

…Increasing Confidence in the Potential for a Significant Winter Weather Event Tonight into Monday…

.An upper level disturbance will bring abundant moisture tonight and continuing into Monday. Meanwhile a very cold air mass will be
in place at the surface. Therefore, any rain is expected to become freezing rain and sleet as early as after sunset today,
then increase in intensity overnight into Monday morning. The precipitation will change over to snow and sleet for portions of
the interior southeast Texas and west central Louisiana overnight and early Monday morning, with some snow mixing in for the
remainder of the area mid to late Monday morning into Monday afternoon. The winter precipitation will gradually end during
Monday afternoon.

The expected winter precipitation amounts, especially ice accumulations, will have the potential to produce significant
impacts.

Bitterly cold arctic air will then move in as the precipitation ends. Dangerously cold wind chills will accompany this arctic air
for Monday night into Tuesday morning.
