Bob: Cold lingers, rain returns, woeful Wednesday coming

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Some sunshine peeked through the clouds this afternoon, but it wasn't enough to warm temps, which remained in the 40s.

Another fast-moving upper disturbance will trigger a new round of winter weather across the South on Wednesday with as much as 4 inches of snow expected across north Louisiana. Locally, we'll see a cold rain develop with temps staying in the 40s and brisk NE winds making it feel colder. Heavy weather gear will be required.

As the rain system pulls away on Thursday, a new surge of cold air pushes in from the north, keeping highs 20-25 degrees below normal/average into Saturday.

A painfully slow warming starts Saturday evening, getting us back to 60-plus on Sunday and 70-plus for next Monday and Tuesday.
