NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Expect one more really great day this Friday before big changes over the weekend. Expect plenty of sunshine and comfortable temperatures in the 60s through the afternoon. Some storms likely ahead of the front as moisture increases ahead of this system. Saturday temperatures will be a bit warmer ahead of the front as well in the low to mid 70s.

Temperatures drop dramatically late Saturday into Sunday behind the front. Parts of the mid-south through Tennessee, North Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia are likely to see some significant snow. It’s not out of the question we see a flurry or two north, but no accumulation in our region. High temperatures will struggle and stay mostly in the 40s through the day with a strong northwest wind making it feel even colder. Monday morning temperatures will be quite cold to start the Martin Luther King Holiday. Temperatures will be in the 30s south and upper 20s north. It does not appear we will reach hard freeze levels, but take precautions to check on people and pets as well as protect tropical plants starting Monday morning as well.
