On the -- there will be constant updates on WL we're gonna continue to talk about this tonight we don't want anybody to panic we just want everybody to be prepared. And if you don't have to go out I don't go out there's really nothing you can do if you hit ice and and for those of you who were so concerned about black ice. It's not something that you can look for. Because it's transparent that they call it black ice because many road surfaces are dark. -- transparent the ice appears to be black. But it's not really black so don't go around looking for one senior black ice will there because it's gonna it's gonna it's gonna catch. And if you do it in there are many things we're gonna repeat. Throughout the issue tonight. I interfered with his for the entire time I've bear with us that we need to repeat some things because they're constantly new people tuning in. And one thing that we wanna do with the show tonight is just talk about some of the sensible things that we. Should all do to to best be prepared and there are so many of you who have experience living in colder climates and maybe -- from. A cold climate area and you've got experience may be grew up with this this kind of wintering weather and EU when he suggests some things that maybe you learned when you were growing up. Maybe you're from here. I'd like me and you lived elsewhere where there was snow and and nice and now you're back here and you could contribute some things from your experience and that the slightest little. Information that you get from the showed tonight might actually help you including somebody who called earlier said. That they they learn when they were in the military had to be driving course in an ice -- drive you know ice. That you if you park on an incline. There's possibility that your car's not going to be. On that the incline. The next day if if there is ice it does no guarantee that it's gonna move because that. The ice might not develop underneath the tire because we're not talking about sub zero temperatures here. But there's a possibility that if you want an incline that you vehicle might not stay -- inclined so you might wanna park on on level ground.

The the heaviest snow in and heaviest precipitation is gonna take place along the South Carolina. And Georgia coast Atlanta's gonna have snow on -- snow throughout much of Alabama Georgia Mississippi. Louisiana. And this entire state is is dealing with cold weather and that doesn't often happen nearly quite often it's it's part of the state not the now the entire state -- so much of the state of the entire state is dealing with this this winter weather warning which again is a very very unusual. A state of affairs for us here -- again to join our show our numbers 2601870. Told free. Our numbers 866889. Is nearly seventy. In a text numbers 877 here's a Texas said does -- they don't name winter storms it's the weather channel that does sent. Just the weather channel it's naming these winter storms and not the national weather sir I atop the National Weather Service to. Well this is said it strictly for marketing. On a publicity reasons. -- the weather channel named storms and this storm is named Leon. And for parts of the country. That deal with such long lasting effects of a storms in the same way that we refer you remember Katrina remember I basic remember Betsy. Well there are people that are gonna refer to the the tough winter storms up north in some parts of the country as. Leon now since we don't have this very often. We're gonna just remember the winter storm -- winter storm -- of 2014. We don't have to remember Leon body parts of the country where they get winter storm after winter storm. They might -- to remember the name as a as a reference point from the French Quarter Mitchell you're under a VW elegant evening. Eight scoot it is and you but he Rachel K thanks initial. But like condolences. And a lot of these. People that -- cheerio. Like -- so that it may -- may be your mayor and he and gets convicted. Which. The -- looked good ever make a long story short. This scenario as they work as a male -- now into sixteen years that India opiates -- And -- still get their tension he noted stole money when they get out of print. Then Mitchell I don't know that would be. A question to ask and since that are Ray Nagin trial is gonna go on for probably a couple of weeks will be a talking about that but tonight we're gonna. We're gonna focus on the weather but -- I appreciate you calling her show. If you do wonder break from all this weather stuff. The most recent -- blog is about Mike Huckabee. -- talking to the Republican National Committee last week and he said some things about birth control that are really helping the Democrats more than he's helping. His own party and before you pass judgment on on what all that means or if I'm bashing Mike Huckabee. Read the blog and share with others it's trending now on our web site. A front page -- -- if you don't -- right now it's overcast and 52 degrees in downtown New Orleans it's a 48 in Covington. So we are far from the wintry conditions that are on their way. And as we've said this is an unusual situation for for us here because usually it's it's the wind and the rain. That precedes the colder weather when we get a cold front that moved through here traditionally the cold front comes through and at the leading edge of the cold front has a lot of rain with it. But the rain is gone by the time the temperatures get to freezing or below. Will now we've got this Arctic air coming down from the north this Arctic blast. It's -- lower the temperatures. And then that's gonna merge. With a low pressure system coming in from the west. And the low pressure's gonna arrive here at a time when the temperature is already below freezing and that's why we're expecting watery conditions with sleet. And snow on possible. Many if you are gonna get snow. I hope we all get it because it's beautiful and it's fun especially if you don't have to be out and -- are talking about things like. Will what do you do if your power goes out how long but the food last wolf unlike days during the the summertime when we have tropical storms in the weather and the the power goes out because of weather. You can't put stuff out if it's freezing outside you can take those containers from your freezer and stuff from the refrigerator. Is that -- the refrigerator and put it outside as long as it's. Dazzling as it's called it is it's going to be it's going to be hard -- expected to be about 36 in the high Wednesday 39. The high -- Thursday up to about 59 it's gonna be seventy. With a chance of rain on Saturday so this is not gonna last long but while we have to deal with this let's just stay with that and get through what is best weekend and the best thing you can do is be prepared. Don't panic best thing to do -- it is to be prepared. Last night Bruno Mars performed at the grammys and also he was a big winner. One and a couple of different categories in this the song was and was a big winner but getting. Haven't desist not sound like the police. There is some brilliant brilliant music and we'll talk about this on this good show once we get past this this winter storms. But there is a brilliant brilliant music that he's gonna defying this decade and it's coming out right now. People like Bruno Mars or defining these times and this is music and younger generation. Will will look back on in morning here. Years and years in the future but this this guy's brilliant and Bruno Mars is gonna be part of their Super Bowl halftime show Sunday along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. And the last forecast I saw was partly cloudy skies for Super Bowl Sunday. With a high of about 3435. Degrees so it shouldn't bother anybody except those who. -- in the stands and you know those who were in the stands conceivable that they usually people who are not used to be inconvenienced in any way. And they're gonna have to sit out in this colder weather. It usually people who get Super Bowl tickets go the spoils of them. This is dispute killed and we'll be right back and -- -- well. This is the police. Spears and cheerio world. Does a little bit like that -- -- I hear a lot of retro sound and some of the music is out today and I died true. And I enjoyed -- -- -- -- one point they had a classical pianist. Performing with Metallica. And Sarah for relish and Carole King did dueling pianists. And that there was a rapper performing with -- mention it imagine dragons so aid that we just so many unique combinations it. Just that the production of that show the people that they brought together I'd be surprised if that show doesn't win net win an enemy. A 401 of the best specials I hear is an update on our WWL pretty jaguar opinion poll tonight. During this winter storm will you be staying home or will you continue your regular routine. 75%. Say they'll be staying home and 25% say they will continue their regular routine. Give us your opinion Michael into our website WWL dot com and practical -- abruptly coming appear. In just a few minutes all of southeast Louisiana including the immediate new -- areas wondering winter storm warning. -- -- expectation is of high winds icy roads driving rain possibly freezing rain sleet.

So I join us tomorrow starting at 5 o'clock he will be with you till midnight tonight if there's anything that you won this year. From experience that you have in winner he weather conditions and where we're not trying to make a big deal out of something that. In other parts of the country is really not a big deal it's just it. That. The that the states and that municipalities in this area. Are not prepared for this. You know we don't have the ice and snow fighting equipment and the trucks and the salt that they have it in other places. So not only is is is that a problem with with dealing with the conditions but also of people just don't know. How to drive and a book I admit. People don't know how to drive period. But especially when it comes due to weather like this there are fewer people who know how to drive here. That in parts of the country where this is is normal however even in parts of the country where this is normal. There are still people who cannot. Navigate. On ice and in in -- So there are there are accidents. Even if there are places that are used to this kind of weather but especially in this part of the country mean this is -- criticism of the people here this is not criticism of the motorist here. This is just a reality fear if if you're not used to say if something like this is so -- Then obviously we need to be more vigilant. And think about things that we're not used to think it would there's a tropical storm or hurricane coming. We pretty much know what to do. But we also need to think about what to do at a time like this and and there are a lot of similarities. For example be prepared to go a couple of days without power.

And I'm getting snow and I'm getting nice and I got down power lines I don't want my people to go somewhere else to help somebody else. But they've got this all figured out. And energy is also said that even though we don't deal with this on a regular basis. That they year. Dear -- workers are prepared to deal with this this kind of weather. Even though this is -- that they have the training. To deal with this kind of weather which is good and -- -- sort of reminds you it looked as as as tempting as it is always beat up on the the energy company Entergy. -- -- No matter how prepared they -- There's still no guarantee you know you can lose power. They could be the greatest company on the planet. And there are certain things that happen in life. That you can't always prevent. And downed power lines -- and as the -- -- storm is one of those things that. That might. Just happen no matter how prepared the energy company -- and we can hope that the energy company is indeed prepared -- from Slidell Walter you're on the stooge -- good evening. I age group.

If you are driving if you have to driving your on the -- do not use cruise control. Because if you start to lose traction that's going to cost the cruise control to kick in and that's gonna cause acceleration. And that's gonna make things even worse. If the card does start to slide.
