NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The fall chill has returned to the area, at least for a short while, but we should expect to flip back to the warmer side of things heading into Thanksgiving.

It’s a cold start out there Tuesday morning. Temperatures are ranging from the 30s and 40s in most spots. But with wall-to-wall sunshine expected later today, we will warm up nicely. Highs will jump into the low 60s with that bright sun making for a nice feel out there.

Over the next 24 hours, high temperatures will rise a good 10 degrees into the 70s for Wednesday. That leads us into a warmer Thanksgiving, with highs expected to climb into the mid- to upper-70s. I expect Thanksgiving brings lots of sun for the first half of the day, with clouds increasing late.

Our next cold front arrives Thanksgiving evening/night. As that front swings through, we again will have a small chance for some shower activity, followed by a big cool down for the long holiday weekend. On Friday, we fall back into the 50s for highs. Looking at the way the pattern shapes up following this front, we could get stuck in the clouds for a few days. It’s not until Sunday that bright sun will return and our highs respond back into the middle 60s.
