NEW ORLEANS — It's a chilly and foggy start. Fog is dense for some with a light drizzle and reduced visibility could slow down your morning commute. Most of the rain will remain offshore through the morning and early afternoon hours as a deepening low pressure moves into the Florida Panhandle. This afternoon there have been big changes to the forecast. New model data suggest another weak and quick moving impulse in the jet stream could spark off more rain this afternoon into the early evening. We'll have to monitor this trend through the morning, but it looks like another round of rain will move across the area later on Friday.
Friday night into Saturday looks calmer with light winds and fog could develop across the area. This weekend looks nicer with some sunshine on Saturday and highs back to near 70. Sunday also looks nice with highs into the mid 70s with mostly sunny skies.
By Monday big changes return as a strong storm system moves across the nation. Rain with a few t-storms looks likely going into Monday afternoon and evening as a strong cold front moves in. Monday will be breezy, mild and humid with highs near 80.
Tuesday a few lingering showers in the morning will turn to clearing skies later in the day. Highs will be much colder in the upper 50s with gusty winds. Wednesday and Thursday highs remain chilly in the 50s with freezing temperatures on the northshore during the morning and upper 30s south of the lake. The coldest morning looks like it will happen on Thursday.
