David: Much colder Tuesday

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Rain continued to start the week with a Gulf low passing to our south. A strong cold front arrives later this evening giving us one last week of sweater weather. There will be a few showers ahead of the front.

Once the cold front moves through Canadian air will surge into the region. This cold high pressure will bring sunshine, dry conditions, and below normal temperatures through most of the week. High temperatures will be in the 50's and low 60's with lows in the 30's and 40's. Much of the North Shore is likely to see a frost on Wednesday and possibly Thursday morning with near freezing temperatures. Strong winds behind the front will also allow for rough seas with Small Craft Advisories in place at least through Tuesday.

Much warmer weather is expected for the weekend with only a stray shower expected on Saturday.
