Thursday’s sleet brought out extra State Police troopers on Interstate 49 and U.S. 190, and additional troopers dispatched to areas north of I-10 in Lafayette, St. Landry and Evangeline parishes, but there were no reports of major weather-related accidents.

Temperatures were expected to have dropped to a low of 27 overnight Thursday and are expected to drop again to 31 overnight Friday.

The whiplash change in temperature, from Wednesday’s high in the 70s to Thursday’s chill, is courtesy of a strong cold front moving through the area.
