Zack: Tale of two seasons this weekend

Temperatures will take a tumble for the second half of the weekend as an Arctic front moves through.

Friday Afternoon Forecast

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - It’s going to be the tale of two seasons this weekend as we go from spring-like weather on Saturday to winter cold for Sunday.

First up is your Friday where we will see an abundance of clouds and a slightly cooler day. Highs today will only manage to make it into the upper 60s.

Now for the first half of the weekend we will revert back to the warmth and humidity as highs rise back into the 70s on Saturday. There will also be a chance for some showers, especially for the first half of the day. By Saturday night an Arctic front will roll through sending temperatures tumbling. The good news for Sunday, the sunny skies make a return to the forecast but it will be much colder. Highs fall back into the low 50s and with the wind, it will feel like the 40s throughout much of Sunday afternoon.

Next week we will be talking about multiple freezes but at least it will be a dry and sunny forecast. As of now this does not look to be a pipe bursting freeze for anyone in our region.
