Warmer, More Humid, and Mostly Cloudy

Highs likely to reach the 80s by the weekend, the first time since November 27, 2020

NEW ORLEANS — If you were up early enough, you saw sunny skies and felt chilly temps. Morning lows were in the 30s and 40s, but clouds and humidity quickly moved in and with more humid air, temperatures won't be nearly as chilly overnight, lows in the 50s and 60s. Some fog is also possible overnight. Mostly cloudy Thursday with highs in the mid 70s. Some spotty showers are possible the next few days, especially Friday as an upper disturbance moves eastward, but remains to our north. A building upper ridge over the Gulf may help push high temperatures over the 80° mark this weekend! An approaching cold front looks to slowly move into the area and possible pass south of the coast by Monday and into Tuesday. This would bring a better chance for scattered showers and storms, and a bit of a cool down for early next week. The Euro does not agree with a frontal passage, so not as much confidence in the long-range forecast beyond the weekend.
