Cooler Air Moving in, More Rain Tuesday

Temps will remain in the 50s Tuesday and below normal all week

NEW ORLEANS — What a nasty day! Temperatures in the 70s is acceptable on the first day of March, but high humidity, fog, and rain...no thanks! A cold front has already moved offshore, but a surface trough to our west will trigger more showers overnight and for the first half of tomorrow. Temps will remain in the low to 50s all day Tuesday with 70% lingering rain with a stalled cold front along the coast and a surface low riding along the boundary. Most rain looks to wrap up by midday or early afternoon Tuesday, but clouds will remain until early Wednesday. Colder air will continue to filter in through the night and morning temps Wednesday will be in the 30s and 40s. With high pressure building in, skies will clear early Wednesday and mostly sunny skies will prevail through late Friday, when another cold front begins to approach for Saturday morning. Few late showers possible Friday and more so Saturday morning as temperatures drop slightly through the day with more sunshine Sunday.
