SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

It was a snow day in Southwest Louisiana!

All Southwest Louisiana school systems announced Friday morning that they were closing.

Saturday’s (Dec. 9) administration of the ACT, scheduled to be given at McNeese State University, has been canceled due to inclement weather. The rescheduled test date will be posted at www.actstudent.org as soon as it is set.

Officials with the school boards in Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron and Jeff Davis and Vernon have announced that schools will close for the day, due to the snow falling in SWLA.

SOWELA and McNeese will be closed until noon. McNeese is still scheduled to hold commencement rehearsal at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 8, and commencement at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 9.

    So far today, there has not been much rain across Southwest Louisiana. More showers have fallen in east Texas. They are moving to the north, and not in our direction, but I cannot rule out a couple showers popping up in Beauregard or Vernon parish. Therefore, I have only a 10% chance of rain this afternoon. The temperatures will be hot, though. Highs will be in the 90s, but it will feel like the triple digits. Overnight, most of the clouds will clear away.
