New Orleans Weather


Rare July cold front headed our way tonight


Updated today at 1:32 PM

Dave Nussbaum/WWLTV Meteorologist

We will have a hot and very humid afternoon ahead of a rare July cold front today.  Expect partly cloudy skies with scattered showers and thunderstorms ahead of the front.  Some of the storms could be strong, and a few could be severe north of the lake.  High temperatures will be in the lower to mid 90s, but it will feel like 100-105+. 

The cold front will move south into New Orleans overnight and then stall along the coast on Tuesday.  We will be mostly cloudy with isolated showers overnight.  Most of the rain will be along the coast.  It will still be muggy with lows in the mid 70s. 

Some drier and less humid air will start to filer into Southeast Louisiana on Tuesday.  This will give us a break from the humidity, but we will not cool down much.  Highs will be in the lower 90s. 

Even more less humid air arrives on Wednesday.  Morning temperatures will be in the upper 60s north of the lake and mid 70s south.  Wednesday Afternoon will be partly cloudy and hot with highs in the lower 90s. 

The muggy weather will return on Thursday and Friday as the front retreats back to the north.  At the same time, a disturbance will ride along it, and that will give us scattered storms each day.  Highs will be around 90 and lows in the 70s each day.
