NEW ORLEANS — Alexandra Cranford - WWL-TV Meteorologist

Much cooler and drier air will push in overnight to make Sunday beautiful and fall-like (!).

Look for a cool-ish morning in the 50s to low 60s, then a sunny, breezy and much less humid day with temperatures in the 60s through afternoon.

Monday morning looks like te coldest we've seen yet with some upper 40s for lows north of the lake and 50s south of the lake. Highs will be in the 70s.

Moisture from the southwest streams in midweek with some rain Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We won't warm up a lot, but clouds and some rain will be back, especially closer to the coast.

The system treks east of us by Friday, allowing some nice, fall-like weather to return for the start of next weekend.
