NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - The rain is coming to an end and a stretch of very nice weather is on the way for the end of the week heading into the weekend.

Good news arrives as early as this evening as a weak front starts to clear us out bringing the possibility of some sun just before sunset. Come Friday we are back to blue, sunny skies and lower humidity. Now it will remain quite warm behind this front as highs head for the middle to upper 80s to end the week.

Those looking for a little cooler air, a secondary surge with a stronger front arrives first thing Saturday morning bringing a true dose of that good feel air and cooler temperatures. Highs for the weekend fall back to the lower 80s as overnight lows dip into the 50s north of the lake and 60s south. More importantly we stay dry all weekend long.
