Bruce: A great weekend for the festivals

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - A stretch of near-perfect weather is underway. Highs have topped out in the mid-70s this afternoon, and you can expect another cool start for Saturday morning. Low temperatures will be in the mid-40s on the north shore and low-50s south of the lake.

Through the weekend, expect tons of sunshine and temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 70s. We'll near the 80-degree mark on Sunday. No rain is expected!

Some Gulf moisture will return early next week and there could be a stray shower or storms around Tuesday and Wednesday. Otherwise, very warm conditions are in store.
