Bob: Dry tonight; rain returns for Fat Tuesday

Updated:

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - An upper disturbance to the north is pushing a cold front through the area. And even though there is not a great deal of rainfall with the front, there is a sharp drop in temperatures, upwards of 20 degrees, behind the cold front. 

We will remain chilly and breezy Monday with mostly cloudy skies. 

A freeze warning will be in effect Monday night and Tuesday morning for the Northshore and Mississippi coast. Cloudy skies and highs will be in the 40s Mardi Gras day with a chance for showers by midday and into the afternoon as another upper disturbance passes through the area. 

We are not expecting very heavy rain, but steady for several hours ending by the early evening. Expect dry conditions and warmer temperatures by Ash Wednesday with much more sunshine by Thursday.
