Much colder air to arrive Saturday

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - If you enjoy the warm weather, then Friday is your last day for a while.

Big changes are in store for the weekend as a strong cold front arrives late Friday night. It may bring a few showers overnight Friday, but by Saturday morning the skies will start to clear and windy, colder conditions will move in. Highs will struggle to get out of the 50s on Saturday.

By Sunday morning, 30s will be possible north of the lake with 40s elsewhere. Less wind and full sun will mean lower 60s during the day.

According to Chief Meteorologist David Bernard,  it appears that much of the North Shore may see a light freeze by Monday morning. Areas away from the lake on the South Shore could see middle 30s with 40s in the city.

Another weak front is expected to approach the area on Wednesday and into Thanksgiving Day. It will likely be a mostly dry frontal passage, but a few stray showers can't be ruled out.

The holiday looks seasonable with highs in the low 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s and plenty of sun.
