We will have partly cloudy skies again this afternoon as the area of high pressure remains over the Northern Gulf of Mexico. A weak backdoor cold front will move through today. It will not impact our weather as it moves through. We will just see a shift in the winds from the SW to NW, and this will make it a little less humid. It will stay unseasonably warm with highs in the lower 80s. The record high for today in New Orleans is 83°, and we will make a run at tying it today! Tonight will have some clouds with patchy dense fog again. Lows will be in the 60s.
The weak backdoor cold front will move into the Gulf and dissipate on Thursday. We will be partly cloudy with highs in the lower 80s.
Friday still looks to be the transitions day between the nice weather and some stormy weather on Saturday. We will be partly to mostly cloudy with a slight chance for a shower or storm. Highs will be in the lower 80s.
Our weather will go downhill on Friday Night as a squall line moves into the area from Texas. This line of storms could be strong to severe by Saturday Morning across the city. SPC currently has us under a Marginal Risk for severe weather at this time. As we get closer to Friday I will have a better idea of the timing and intensity of the storms. Stay tuned for updates. Low temperatures will be in the 60s.
Once the squall line of strong to severe storms moves through in the morning, we will see some lingering rain showers on Saturday afternoon. High temperatures will be down a little thanks to the rain as they climb into the upper 70s.
The cold front associated with the squall line will stay north of us, so we will not cool down on Sunday. We will have a pleasant day with partly cloudy skies and highs in the lower 80s.
