NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Plenty of sunshine dominated the weather across Southeast Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf Coast with high pressure in control through the weekend. The drier air and slightly cooler temperatures make it feel more like the holidays. Saturday's highs should stay in the 60's with some Sunday morning lows in the 30's on the North Shore and 40's south of the lake.
Sunday looks like another great day, but we will start to feel a few changes. No problems for Saints tailgating. Temperatures will be a little cool in the AM, but all looks well through game time. Late in the day, warmer and more moist air will begin to move into the region.
Another roller coaster ride is on the way for next week. A deep upper level trough and associated cold front will usher in windy and warm weather on Monday. The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma places almost the entire area under a slight risk for severe thunderstorms late in the day Monday.
Rain chances continue into Tuesday and Wednesday with a front allowing a strong push of cold air to move in for the end of the week. Some freezing temperatures may be possible again late next week on the North Shore.
