for no autumn/fall? I figured this would be a good place to ask since Louisiana spans far enough north to south and likely has a line where it doesn't freeze south of that line.

I would say the I-10/I-12 corridor.. At least in my area.

I don't think there is any point in Louisiana that's guaranteed never to freeze. I don't think the state is far enough south for that. I would even venture to guess that every parish records at least one or two nights of below freezing temps every winter. Yes? No?

I'd say anywhere south of Alexandria doesn't snow very often and won't get obnoxiously cold. Then again, that far south (especially southeast LA) is oppressively humid, so what may be 40 degree weather can feel downright miserable. But yeah you won't get Michigan winters in south Louisiana

Nope . It has snowed all the way down to the coast . Not often , but it has happened .

Not sure where that line is, but when I worked 140 miles offshore south of the Cameron coast in 1988, we froze a couple of times. I think that was the year that New Orleans saw ice floating down the Mississippi River...

Last winter was pretty cold by south Louisiana standards. I moved into my current house in 2002 and planted two windmill palms at the time. They survived each winter until this past one.

From September to April there's a noticeable difference in temperature north of the lake and south of the lake. The southshore stays relatively warm, the northshore stays relatively cool. Even in the spring and summer you can feel a mild difference in temperature.

I've seen ice in puddles on Cheniere au Tigre and Pecan Island but then I've seen winters that lasted two weekends in the Banana Republic.

Could've sworn it only got down to 30 or maybe just a little below that. The coldest it got this winter was that week in January when it actually froze. There was that week in December when they actually thought it would snow and let's not forget that it did snow the year before. Even so, those temperatures where way out of the norm and it was much colder on the Northshore.
