HAPPENING TODAY: Funeral services for Paul Prudhomme; pleasant temps and a cool front

Funeral services for Chef Paul Prudhomme

New Orleanians will gather today to say their final goodbyes to Louisiana legendary chef Paul Prudhomme. A visitation took place Sunday night at Jacob Schoen and Son Funeral Home. Prudhomme passed away last week after experiencing a brief illness leaving behind many friends and fans of his world-renowned restaurants. Visitation begins Monday at 9 a.m. and a funeral mass is set for 10:30 a.m. at St. Louis Cathedral. Prudhomme was best known for popularizing Cajun and creole cuisine.

Pleasant temperatures for Monday

A sunny Monday is expected as high pressure dominates our weather today. We will have low humidity and mild temperatures. A ‘cool' front will move through Southeastern Louisiana early Tuesday morning and bring an isolated shower or two. But it will be dry for the most part with not a lot of clouds with it either. After this front, we will see a continuation of Sunshine, dry air with cool nights, and mild to warm days days.
