Nicondra: Patchy fog could cause problems over the weekend

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Some low clouds hanging around tonight, but over all there were no major weather changes this Friday evening.

We don't even have our long term average temperatures in the 50s and 60s as a tropical air mass continues to dominate our weather. Expect sticky conditions to hold on through the weekend with our next front proving to be a very slow mover. Steering currents are actually parallel to the system so it will be next week before we see any major effects.

Patchy fog developing Friday night and into the early morning will be the most problematic issue we will have to deal with over the next couple of days. A sprinkle or two is not out of the question, but any rain that managed to develop would be light and short lived. Real rain chances don't return until the middle of next week and even then we likely won't see stormy weather with the front on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Highs will remain in the 70s with lows in the 60s. As dew points are in the low 60s as well we can expect the fog threat to continue with winds dying down and fewer clouds Saturday and Sunday nights. The cold front will finally approach the area on Tuesday into Wednesday. Along with increased rain chances we will get some colder weather in for Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the 50s and 60s and lows in the 40s.
