Warming Trend Begins Tonight With Temps Above Freezing

More 70s this week with also an increasing chance for showers

NEW ORLEANS — After a freezing morning away from the city, it appears we're done with the freezes for the time being. At least the next 7 to 10 days. The upper pattern is beginning to shift, one in which the deep, upper troughs which bring us the cold Canadian and Arctic air are going to remain north and out west as upper ridging will dominate the south. This doesn't mean we won't see any cold fronts, but the fronts we do see will usually not have much in the way of really cold air associated. One such front will move through early Wednesday. Highs temperatures Tuesday near 70°; Wednesday 68°. A return flow from the Gulf will increase humidity and bring temperatures to the low 70s Thursday. Another, slow moving front approaches Friday under mostly cloudy skies and a 50% chance for scattered showers. 40% lingering rain Saturday morning with highs in the low 60s. Upper 60s by Sunday and low 70s Monday. The end of the week, weekend, and start of next week looks to see more clouds than sun.
