Bruce: Sun returns with cooler temperatures; Thanksgiving looking mild with a stray shower

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - It feels like the holidays as a cold front ushers in cooler and drier air. it won’t last long though as we have some ups and downs as we approach Thanksgiving. After a cloudy start, we’ll gradually see more and more sunshine through the late morning and into the afternoon. Afternoon highs will top out around 70 degrees, a good 5 to 8 degrees lower than the upper 70s seen on Sunday. Tuesday morning will likely be the coolest of the week with 40s north of Lake Pontchartrain and 50s south.

The chill won’t last long, though. Temperatures will rebound Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday as southerly winds return ahead of our next cold front. highs will reach the mid to upper 70s again with slightly more humidity.

Rain chances will go up Wednesday as the front nears, and the question now is IF that front will get all the way through. Only a slight drop in temperatures is now expected for Thanksgiving Day, and a few clouds and showers may linger as well.

Rain chances go up again over the weekend as a strong front finally pushes our way. It should arrive sometime on Sunday
