NEW ORLEANS — Clouds hung around for a good portion of the morning, keeping temperatures chilly and even as sunshine broke out, we remained in the 50s and breezy. A cold day today will moderate some tomorrow with less wind and highs in the upper 50s and some low 60s. A Gulf low developing to our south will likely increase clouds and send some coastal showers toward LA and MS later Thursday and some could move inland a bit early Friday. The low is being generated from an upper trough, which will move east of the area for the weekend, clearing skies and allowing for pleasant conditions. Another, stronger cold front looks to increase shower and thunderstorms for Monday before another big drop in temperatures by Tuesday.
