(WVUE) - A great stretch of weather is on the way and the timing is perfect as we go into another weekend of Carnival celebrations.
Thursday night expect mostly clear conditions combined with very dry air and light northwesterly winds it's an ideal situation for radiational cooling.
Most locations on the Northshore will see freezing conditions and a few south shore spots may get down to 32 as well.
In the metro area and near Lake Pontchartrain we can expect to stay in the middle 30s.
Friday looks to be a spectacular day with plenty of sunshine. Highs should hit the middle 60s and clear skies into the evening for parades and Family Gras.
Evening temperatures will be in the 50s with a slight warm up for the rest of the weekend.
Saturday winds become southerly again increasing moisture and warming temps into the low 70s.
A weak disturbance will push past us on Sunday increasing clouds and bringing a slight chance for a shower late night into early Monday.
