Lots of Weekend Sunshine and Chilly Temps

Freezing temperatures expected North and West Saturday and Sunday morning

NEW ORLEANS — Gorgeous today with sunny skies and cool afternoon temperatures along with very dry air! It isn't often we see dew points in the teens and 20s in SE LA! Clear skies and very dry air will allow temps to drop overnight. The only thing preventing them from just bottoming out is the wind. Calm conditions would allow for optimal cooling. However, 20s and 30s overnight with a freeze expected on the Northshore and away from the city. As colder air rotates around an upper low to our north, afternoon highs tomorrow will stay in the low to mid 50s. Breezy early with winds diminishing through the day. Another chilly night Saturday and Sunday with highs in the 50s to near 60 respectively. A building upper ridge across the Gulf south by the middle to end of next week will allow for a return to more spring-like conditions with cool mornings in the 40s and 50s then eventually 50s to near 60 and afternoon highs in the upper 60s and low 70s. Mostly dry next week with only the chance for an isolated shower Thursday and Friday.
