We will have a dry and mild day ahead with plenty of clouds as an area of high pressure sits north of Louisiana. Highs will climb into the mid 60s.
Our weather will drastically change tonight as a very strong cold front moves through by Thursday Morning. It will be cloudy and cool with isolated showers. Lows will be in the lower 50s north and mid 50s south of the lake.
Thursday will start out with plenty of clouds, but we will become partly cloudy and blustery by the afternoon in the wake of the very strong cold front. A MUCH COLDER air mass from Canada will filter down to Louisiana. Our high temperatures in the mid 50s will occur in the morning before the front moves through. Then the temperatures will fall into the 40s all day. It will be windy, so it will feel like the 40s. Bundle up on Thursday!
We will be clear, breezy and colder on Thursday Night. Lows will be around 30 north of the lake, so protect plants, pets and people. Lows will be in the mid 30s south of the lake, so protect plants, pets and people.
A strong area of high pressure will build over the Deep South on Friday. This will make it sunny and breezy with highs only in the upper 40s. You will need to stay bundled up!
Friday Night turns even colder as the winds go calm. Lows will be in the mid 20s north with a moderate to hard freeze possible. Protect plants, pets and people again! South of the lake we will fall to the mid 30s with some frost likely - including in the city of New Orleans. Be sure to protect plants, pets and people there too. Also, use caution with space heaters! Make sure they are far away from anything that could catch fire.
The weekend will start out very cold on Saturday Morning, but it will be nice by the afternoon with plenty of sunshine and cool highs in the mid 50s. Sunday will be warmer as the high pressure moves east of us and easterly winds return. We will be partly cloudy with warmer high temperatures around 70°.
