Mainly dry and less humid weather through Memorial Day

Enjoy a break in humidity and temperatures in the 80s.

NEW ORLEANS — We're treated to a stretch of quiet and less humid weather that should last through the Memorial Day weekend. Temperatures will stay near or just below average with highs in the 80s. Mornings should be pleasant in the 60s to lower 70s. 

The drier air will stay in place because of a low pressure area parked to our east. This will cause winds from the north which will keep the drier air swirling in. A few stray showers or storms could form on Saturday as a weak disturbance passes through. Then Sunday and Memorial Day will be mostly sunny and dry. 

By Tuesday humidity should edge up, and temperatures could also rise a couple of degrees. This could make it feel more like summer at the middle of next week. An upper disturbance developing to our west over coastal Texas may help some scattered rain form Wednesday through Friday.
