Nicondra: Warm up ahead of next cold front expected

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - It was another foggy start, but most of the really dense fog lifted much earlier Sunday than it did Saturday as winds increased and some higher clouds moved in from the northeast. Sunday afternoon was very nice with highs in the low 70's and a good bit of sunshine.

Overnight into Monday we can expect an increase in cloud cover. Lows will still be mild in the middle 50s. By the afternoon look for high temperatures to be in the middle 70's with an increase in winds out of the south ahead of our next cold front. Showers brought rain to parts of southeast Texas on Sunday. This area will see some of that shower activity for Monday as well.

Tuesday will be a challenge for some with rain chances ramping up as well as temperatures. Look for highs to peak in the mid to upper 70s with some spots getting close to 80 degrees ahead of the front even with much more cloud cover and some significant rain. Rain could be heavy at times and we may even see a few thunderstorms. Expect showers to linger through the overnight even as the colder air begins to move in on Wednesday.

Right now Wednesday looks to be one of those days you won't want to leave home without a coat. Depending on the timing of the front it could be a day when temperatures steadily fall through the afternoon. Once the colder air settles in we will be seeing highs in the 50's to finish the week.
