NEW ORLEANS — Sunday morning looks chilly in the upper 40s north of the lake and low 50s south. A little patchy fog may form here and there overnight.

Winds become southerly on Sunday, so it turns a bit warmer with temperatures around 70 for the afternoon. Some clouds will stay, but there should be some breaks of sun as well.

Monday brings even more of a warm-up to near 80° ahead of our next rain system and cold front.

Right now, we're expecting some showers on Tuesday as the front arrives, then another round of rain perhaps early Wednesday. Rain totals may be about one inch... so that would be more than the past couple of rain events, but not anything truly heavy. At this point, the threat of severe weather looks low, but we'll be watching in case something changes.

Cooler air moves in Tuesday behind the cold front, so temperatures will likely drop through the 60s in the second part of the day, and nighttime temperatures will get into the 40s. Wednesday will be chilly and breezy in the 50s with morning rain ending.

Then it turns cold again Wednesday night with 30s on the Northshore and 40s south of the lake. 

Cool weather continues Thursday, then some showers may return Friday as a low pressure area forms south of our coastline.

The upcoming weekend looks drier but rather cool with perhaps 40s for the mornings and afternoons near 60°.
