Episode Narrative A rare and widespread snowfall occurred across much of southeast and east central Louisiana, beginning early in the morning of December 11th and continuing until around the noon hour, as an unusually strong and cold upper level storm system moved across the region. The snow, which was occasionally heavy, affected all but some of the immediate coastal areas. The heaviest snow occurred over the Florida parishes of east central and southeast Louisiana from east of Baton Rouge to the Pearl River, and along and to the north of Interstate 12. Snowfall amounts of 2 to 6 inches were common in this area with 6 to 8 inch totals occurring in sections of Tangipahoa Parish. The weight of the snow resulted in widespread power outages and tree damage in areas that received the heavier snowfall amounts. Snowfall totals of 1 to 2 inches were common across areas to the south and southwest of Lake Pontchartrain including the New Orleans metropolitan area.
