NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The week ended on a lovely note, but a quick increase in moisture ahead of today's cold front made for a gloomy Saturday with rainy conditions for much of the afternoon. Most of us didn't see high amounts, but it did rain enough that it was a bit of a chore getting around this election day.
As we head into the evening, most of the rain is drying up and soon winds will pick up, pushing in much colder air to finish off the weekend. Expect a 10-15 degree temperature drop with Sunday's highs staying in the 50's.
In addition to the chilly temperatures winds will be brisk making for a blustery, cold day with feels-like temperatures in the 40's. The North Shore and extreme western parts of the area are under a freeze watch for Sunday night/Monday morning as winds will lighten up as high pressure settles in behind the front.
Light winds and clearing skies under the high pressure will allow most North Shore locations to dip down below freezing. Some places will be in the upper 20's. The core of the cold will move east and allow for gradual warming into the beginning of the week.
I know some are already looking ahead to the holiday. Right now Thanksgiving looks to be a bit warmer than average with a few showers. Another front will move through next week.
