NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Today has been an incredible day for Mardi Gras 2016. We started out cold, but we warmed into the lower 50's under brilliant sunshine. The winds have been blowing as well. If you were dressed for it, it was actually comfortable. A wind advisory continues through 5 p.m.
Your Ash Wednesday will be nice and sunny with highs in the middle to upper 50's. The rest of the week is mostly dry and temperatures begin to rebound quickly. Highs will reach the middle 65-70 range starting Thursday through Saturday. The next real chance for rain doesn't show up until next Monday.
