NEW ORLEANS — Another beautiful afternoon with comfortable temperatures and a lot of sun. Tonight will become partly cloudy and it stays cool with lows in the 50s north and 60s south. Friday will be partly cloudy and still pleasant as an upper-level disturbance moves over us. Highs will warm up back in the lower 80s.
Weekend Outlook: A cold front will stall just west of us this weekend. There will also be a few more disturbances will move through each day. Saturday and Sunday will be mostly cloudy with a few showers possible each day. Highs stay in the lower 80s.
Mississippi River: The river continues to rise per usual for the "spring flood" season. It is forecast to rise to above flood stage (17.0 ft.) and get to 17.5 feet on April 12. It is possible that the Bonnet Carré Spillway could open as early as this weekend. The Army Corps will be monitoring the latest river flow rate which is forecast to reach 1.25 million cubic feet per second. That is the rate needed to open the spillway. Stay tuned for updates.
