NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - With the clouds hanging around all day Monday, high temperatures remained in the upper 60s. It was a 13 degree departure from the day before.
Even with clouds Tuesday, a flow from the east and southeast will warm temperatures into the mid 70s by Tuesday afternoon. We will see the upper 70s by Wednesday and Thursday before a cold front pushes through.
Expect some showers Thursday afternoon/evening with the front and a more drastic drop in temperatures by Friday with highs in the mid 60s and overnight lows in the 40s.
It will be cool and sunny on Saturday, but highs return to the upper 70s by Palm Sunday.
