NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - A rare, May cold front has swept through the area bringing with it much cooler weather and some breezy conditions.

Unfortunately this front has stalled just offshore which will keep clouds around for much of the day today and even some light showers will be possible at the coast. Highs for today will be held down in the 60s making for quite the chill.

Now the second half of the weekend the weather looks to improve as the clouds move out bringing back that nice sunshine just in time for Mother’s Day. Don’t worry the pleasant, cool feel will stick around for Sunday and with the increase in sun highs will rebound nicely into the upper 70s.

Slowly going into the new week our temperatures will begin to moderate as the humidity doesn’t look to return until Tuesday or Wednesday. That will eventually lead us into our next rain chance coming for the second half of the week.
