New Orleans and North shore areas felt the first frigid effects of the winter storm blowing into south Louisiana on Tuesday afternoon. North shore residents in Slidell and Mandeville first began feeling freezing temperatures around 3 p.m. and by 5 p.m. sub-freezing temps reached across Lake Pontchartrain into Jefferson and New Orleans. This winter blast represents the second storm to strike the area in less than a week.
