That’s the looming and lingering question as forecasters predict plunging temperatures, a blustery northern wind and wintery precipitation will wreak havoc on much of south Louisiana.

“I don’t think it’s a decision that can happen today,” LSU spokesman Kent Lowe said.

LSU and Kentucky are slated for an 8 p.m. tip on Tuesday, a game that could be imperiled if those predictions work out. And we’re all left playing wait and see. Any contingency plans haven’t exactly been hatched.

“Really nothing has taken place yet,” LSU spokesman Kent Lowe said. “I’m not sure it actually can until it gets bad.”
