Bob: Sharp temperature drop coming, heavy coats needed Thursday

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Our Spring preview that had us flirting with record warmth today, will be replaced by an Arctic Blast that will require winter weather gear for the next several days. Lower 80s will give way to falling temps into the 40s shortly after daybreak Thursday staying there all day with a biting north wind gusting to 30+ mph. 

A few showers may accompany the front but the rain should leave with some filtered sunshine for Friday into Saturday. Highs will struggle back into the 50s and stay there into next week. Some showers may return late Sunday lasting for a couple of days.
