After clear and chilly morning across Southeast Louisiana, temperatures only climb to around 75 today.

"High pressure will sit over us today and Tuesday. We will have plenty of sunshine today with low humidity levels. High temperatures will be in the mid 70s,"  WWL-TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum told us. "Tuesday will be a little warmer and staying less humid with high temperatures around 80."  

He says Wednesday will be the transition day between the nice weather and the return of storms. 

"The area of high pressure will be east of Louisiana, so southerly winds return with higher humidity levels and partly cloudy skies. High temperatures will be in the lower 80s." 

The next cold front arrives on Thursday.

"The weather could get rough," Nussbaum advised.  "It will be mostly cloudy, windy, warm and humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could be strong to severe. We will need to keep an eye on this over the next few days. The rain/storms arrive around midday and last into Thursday Night. It is likely another squall line will move through with strong winds and hail. Fortunately, it looks like the better chance for severe weather stays north of us in Mississippi."

Things turn real nice again for the holiday weekend.  

"The cold front moves through by Friday Morning, and then we will be left with some lingering clouds and light showers during the day. It will be cooler with highs around 70." 

  • Easter Weekend Outlook: The weather will be beautiful all weekend as high pressure sits over us. Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday will have plenty of sunshine each day with low humidity and highs in the mid to upper 70s. The weather will be perfect for the Crescent City Classic too on Saturday with morning temperatures in the lower 50s!
