The fog was stubborn this morning but for the first time in three days, sun is expected this afternoon.

Zack: Saturday morning weather forecast

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - This afternoon we are seeing the fog dissipate and sunshine returning, finally. It has been three days since the sun filled our sky so welcome back long lost friend. That return of the sun will warm us nicely into the mid to upper 60s.

It gets even warmer for Sunday as highs head for the middle to upper 70s and a southerly breeze begins to pick up. Now we could start Sunday with some fog but quickly that will dissipate leading to another overall nice, sunny day. Just a bit on the warm side for December standards.

Monday brings our next chance for rain as a strong cold front moves into the region. Expect a line of showers and storms to move in for the second half of the day mainly by the late afternoon into the evening hours. Some of those storms could be strong but the greater severe threat looks to remain north of us. This will be something we watch going through the weekend as Monday night is Saints night this week. We turn sharply colder behind that front come the middle of next week.
