Bob: Coldest weekend in 7 months, heavy weather gear needed!

We go from record heat yesterday (87) to near record cold by Sunday morning as a series of cold fronts plow off our coast.

The chill will come in waves with the first arriving tonight. That will sweep away all of the Gulf moisture so that when the second, stronger surge arrives on Friday afternoon, it'll come through with no rain.

North winds will be howling Friday night into Saturday with highs struggling to get out of the 50s despite all day sunshine.

Sunday morning could see near-freezing temps on the north shore, with 40s south of Lake Pontchartrain.

A rapid warm-up sets in for Monday and Tuesday with another front bringing us a rain threat for next Wednesday.
