Bruce: Beautiful parade weather is here to stay

Bruce: Beautiful parade weather is here to stay

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - We're in for a beautiful weekend of parades, but you might want a jacket for after the sun goes down.

We started off chilly again this morning with some mid 30s on the north shore and 40s south. This afternoon is fantastic with lots of sunshine and highs climbing to the mid 60s. This evening, you'll probably want a light jacket or sweater for evening parades and Family Gras as temperatures will fall into the 50s.

Another chilly morning on your Saturday, but highs will sneak into the low 70s! It should be beautiful weather for Carnival celebrations, but jackets will still be wanted for the cool evening hours. More cloud cover is expected Sunday as highs climb into 70s again.

Our next chance for rain arrives Tuesday followed by another big cool down.
