NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -We started the day with patchy fog, light rain and mist. Otherwise a mostly cloudy and warmer day is on tap with highs reaching the upper 60s. Friday will be warm and cloudy as well with highs in the low 70s. A few more spotty showers are possible as we close out the week.
A cold front brings a line of rain and a few storms on Saturday morning. It will turn windy and colder behind the front by Saturday evening.
While it will be dry on Sunday, it will be windy and cold with highs in the 40s. Winds could gust over 30 MPH at times, and the wind chill will be in the 20s and 30s during the day. Sunday night, a moderate freeze is expected north of the Lake and exposed pipes should be wrapped as a precaution. South of the Lake, temperatures will likely stay just above 32°.
A fast warm-up begins late Monday with the next decent chance for rain comes with a cold front on Wednesday.
