NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Up and down, up and down we go in weather, as we are on the upward trend to finish off the weekend.

Expect a warm Sunday, as lots of sun pushes temperatures into the middle- to upper-70s. We are seeing moisture levels rise, so note that some patchy fog has developed across the area. That fog should dissipate quickly through the morning hours.

The warmer weather doesn’t last past today, as a cold front is expected to swing through first thing Monday morning. This means be ready to dress for cooler weather as you head back to work. Highs fall into the 60s on Monday, with a cool breeze blowing. By Tuesday, we may struggle to make it out of the 50s for highs in a few spots.

Come midweek and looking ahead to Thanksgiving, the trend will be upwards again, as highs return to the 70s and moisture starts to increase. I have introduced a rain chance for Thanksgiving Day, as our next cold front seems to be timing out late afternoon into the evening hours. Although Thanksgiving will be in the 70s, the start of the Christmas shopping season on Black Friday will feel like it, as highs fall into the 50s under breezy conditions.
