Warming up ahead of rain and a cold front on Wednesday

The weather for next weekend's parades looks dry, cool and breezy.

NEW ORLEANS — We start this week with pleasant weather ahead of rain on Wednesday and another big cool-down for next weekend. On Monday we'll warm up nicely to near 70 during the afternoon with mostly sunny skies. 

The warmup continues Tuesday. We'll jump to the upper 70s in the afternoon. Moisture will increase as surface high pressure shifts east and an upper high pressure area builds in the Gulf. This will set us up for a few showers on Tuesday. 

A trough of low pressure and cold front will move in Wednesday with showers and a few thunderstorms. Most rain should end by Wednesday night. 

Clouds will linger on Thursday as it turns cooler. Another shot of cool air will filter in Friday to make next weekend's parades dry but chilly and breezy.
