We will have one more cool day before a warming trend starts across Southeast Louisiana. High pressure remains over us today and that will keep the cool northeasterly winds over us. It will be clear, but highs will only be in the upper 50s. It will stay cool and nice this evening with temperatures in the 40s, so you will will want a jacket.
This will be the last chilly night of the week, but only a few spots may get to freezing. Some high clouds will move over us and the area of high pressure, which has the coolest air beneath it, moves to the east of Louisiana. Lows will be in the lower to mid 30s north of the lake and mid 40s south. You will want to cover or bring in your plants on the Northshore. Also, you should have a warm place for your pets on both sides of the lake!
The area of high pressure will continue moving east of us on Wednesday, and that will bring back east to southeast winds for the rest of the week. More clouds will develop as moisture moves in from the Pacific Ocean. Tuesday will be partly cloudy with highs in the 60s. Wednesday will also be partly cloudy, but it will be warmer with highs in the 70s. It will not be as cold at night with lows in the 40s north and 50s south.
Thanksgiving and Friday will be a mild and more humid with partly cloudy skies. A shower or two will also be possible, but most of you will stay dry. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s. Lows will be in the 50s north and 60s south.
