Zack: Near-record heat, then a strong cold front
Highs will soar into the upper 80s Wednesday afternoon
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Temperatures are set to soar Wednesday, as we wait for a strong cold front which is expected to arrive later tonight.
Today looks to be the warmest day of spring so far. Highs this afternoon will top out in the upper 80s, with quite a lot of humidity. Factoring in a heat index, at times it may feel like 90 degrees. There is a small chance for a shower or storm popping up as the cold front nears the area late this afternoon into the evening.
This will be a strong cold front and it will set the stage for a beautiful run of weather from Thursday through the upcoming weekend. Highs will dip back into the 60s and 70s, with lows in the 30s and 40s. A good bit of wind will be blowing behind this front, so there will certainly be a chill in the air the next few days after today.
Our next rain chance doesn’t arrive until next week.
