It is a chilly morning, but do you remember back in 2014 when we had the ice storm in New Orleans? We picked up 0.25"+ of ice across the area. This shut down most of the roads in and out of the city thanks to all the bridges we have! It was such a mess!
A cold front will move across the Gulf South on Wednesday. We will have plenty of clouds during the day with spotty showers developing in the afternoon ahead of the front. Then the front will move through during the evening hours with a line of showers. It will be very unseasonably warm ahead of the cold front with near record highs in the upper 70s. Wednesday Night will be partly cloudy and cooler with lows in the 40s north and 50s south.
Another area of high pressure will build over us on Thursday and it will stay in place through Saturday. We will have plenty of sunshine each day with highs in the upper 50s to around 60. Lows will be in the mid 30s north with some frost, and in the 40s south. Get ready to bring out the heavy coats again!!
A dry cold front will move through on Sunday. It will bring us a reinforcing shot of cooler air. Highs will stay in the upper 50s. Lows will be in the 30s north and 40s south. Enjoy this nice break from the warm air and a return of more Winter temperatures.
