Zack: Perfect weather comes to an end, muggy weather returns

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - All good things must come to an end and that includes this amazing stretch of weather we have had for your Easter weekend.

Southeasterly winds are starting to pick up and that means the muggies are on the way back. For your Monday morning, lows will not be nearly as cool as the past few mornings with most only bottoming out in the low 60s to upper 50s. Due to the increase in moisture, there could be some patches of fog to contend with on your morning drive.

Outside of the increase in moisture, the start of the week will be relatively quiet. Afternoon highs will be in the 80s both Monday and Tuesday which will feel much more uncomfortable due to that increased moisture. There is the chance for a sporadic shower or two but overall rain chances don't arrive until our next front approaches Tuesday night into Wednesday.

As this next front moves in during the overnight hours Tuesday into Wednesday, storm chances will quickly increase. There is also the potential with the front that one or two strong storms may develop. By Wednesday morning we will already be seeing improving conditions but much cooler temperatures. Northerly winds will be brisk behind the front as highs struggle to make it out of the 60s Wednesday afternoon. Morning lows for Thursday will range from the low 40s north of the lake to low 50s south.

Sunny skies look to rule the rest of the work week before another front could possibly increase rain chances by next weekend.
