Hard-freeze conditions are expected for the next several nights in the Baton Rouge metro area, if not for most of the state.
The mercury dipped into the lower 20s overnight, and that's not taking into account dangerous wind chills that will make it feel like the cold is near the zero mark.
And, don't look for much improvement in the daytime temperatures. They won't rise much above 40 until Saturday.
