The rain will come to an end around 10 AM as the cold front moves east of New Orleans. Then we will become partly cloudy through early afternoon with clearing by late afternoon. High temperatures in the mid 70s occurred early this morning ahead of the front and will fall behind the cold front. We will only rebound back into the upper 60s during the afternoon with the sunshine.
Tonight will be clear and much cooler. Lows north of the lake will be in the upper 30s with some patchy frost. Make sure you cover or bring in your plants. Have a warm place for pets too! South of the lake will be in the upper 40s.
High pressure will briefly build over us on Thursday and Friday. We will see plenty of sunshine each day with cool high temperatures in the mid 60s. Lows will be in the 30s north with some patchy frost and 40s south of the lake. Make sure you get out and enjoy the sunshine because changes are coming this weekend.
It looks like we will have some soggy weather this weekend as an area of low pressure develops in the Western Gulf of Mexico. It will slowly move to the NE right across Louisiana and the Deep South. This will bring us spotty showers on Saturday, but look for widespread steady rain on Sunday. The clouds and rain will keep high temperatures only in the mid 60s all weekend. Lows will be in the 50s on both sides of the lake.
