Today & Tonight: Make sure you get out and enjoy this Spring-like weather today because BIG changes are coming to our temperatures on Thursday. It will be an unseasonably warm and humid afternoon across Southeast Louisiana with highs in the lower 80s. The record high for today at Armstrong International is 83°, so we will come close to that! Otherwise, it will be partly to mostly cloudy with a few showers popping up from time to time.
This evening will be mild and muggy with mostly cloudy skies and a few showers. Temperatures will be in the 70s, so it will be pretty nice to get out and enjoy it!
Most of tonight will be pretty mild as the strong cold front moves closer to New Orleans. It will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers developing overnight along with some patchy fog. Temperatures will fall to near 60 by daybreak, or right before the cold front gets here.
Thursday Strong Cold Front: The cold front should pass through New Orleans around 7 AM, and then the temperatures will quickly fall from around 60 to the 40s by 9 AM. We will also become windy with NW/N winds of 20-25 mph along with the scattered showers. The temperatures will hold steady in the mid 40s through the afternoon hours. However, with the strong winds, the wind chilly will make it feel like the 30s all day! Be sure to dress warmly as you head out the door to work and school tomorrow! Thursday Night will be partly cloudy and colder with lows in the lower 30s north with a light freeze, and mid 30s south.
Friday will continue to be much colder and breezy with mostly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the 40s. Friday Night stays cold with lows in the 30s on both sides of the lake.
