Bruce: Rain no issue for parades, but it will be colder

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

As we head into the second big week and weekend of parades, rain is not an issue through Sunday, but temps will feel like winter for riders and spectators.

We have a series of three cold fronts moving in Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Each one is progressively colder. Tuesday highs struggled to get out of the 50s. This is a few degrees cooler than our normal high of 64.

Overnight lows will drop into the 30s and 40s. The second cold front passes through early Thursday, dropping highs into the 50s and a cold Friday with morning lows in the 20s and 30s. Temps will only reach near 51 degrees by the afternoon.

The third front arrives early Sunday, keeping temps only near 50 to end the weekend.

Beautiful weather - but chilly - as we head into the big parade weekend. Signs are pointing to a milder Lundi Gras with highs in the low- to mid-60s with increasing clouds and a chance for rain on Mardi Gras Day.
