Fall arrives under comfortable conditions

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Fall has officially begun and we remain under comfortable conditions.

Autumn officially arrived at 3:21 a.m. Wednesday as the sun passed over the equator during the year’s autumnal equinox.

Humidity is bearable and temperatures will reach the mid and upper 80s, which is near normal.

The muggies, however, will continue to increase thanks to an easterly wind.

Any showers Wednesday should remain along the coast. But, we could see a stray shower pass through by Thursday and Friday. Rain chances increase into the weekend, but not a wash out.
