Hard freeze north shore, light freeze south

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A re-enforcing surge of cold air will result in another morning of freezing temperatures on Thursday before a huge warm up arrives on Friday.

Hard freeze warnings are up for the north shore, where full precautions will be required. A light freeze is expected on the south shore away from Lake P.

High pressure will begin to shift eastward during the day on Thursday, taking the coldest air to our east. Bright sunshine should allow highs to climb back into the 50s. Very brisk south winds return by midday on Friday, bringing clouds, much milder air and a slight chance for a few late showers.

That warm-up will continue through Sunday with highs in the 70s. Rain chances will increase for Sunday evening as our next cold front approaches, cooling us down for next week.
