NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - After a chilly start to the morning with temperatures dipping into the 30s again it turned out to be a lovely Saturday with highs in the low to middle 60s. The weekend will stay nice as another weak cold front will push through the area late this evening. Very dry air in place will prevent any rain, but the change in winds should clear up any fog that develops during the late night hours.
Sunday looks to be another nice day with plenty of sunshine and seasonable temperatures in the low to middle 60s for highs. The nice weather holds on for the start of the week with a gradual warm up starting Tuesday afternoon as highs move into the middle 60s. Another front pushes through Wednesday, but again it looks like a dry frontal passage with no serious moisture back in the area.
The best chance for showers and thunderstorms comes towards the end of the week as a little moisture makes it back into the picture before an upper low develops out to our west. The low will approach for the end of the week bringing a chance for rain and storms by Friday. Depending on the speed of the system rain could linger into next weekend. We will keep an eye on it.
