Thursday and Friday should bring us more warm temperatures, almost summer like before another front rolls through and cools things down a bit. 

"This weekend plunges us into truly fall-like weather," said WWL-TV meteorologist Alexandra Cranford.  "Rain chances also increase a little on Thursday for maybe a few isolated showers." 

Cranford says Friday looks like maybe the highest chance for rain this week (near 40%). Rain totals may be up to a half-inch to inch or so. 

We really do need some rain.   

The cooler, much drier air surges in Saturday to bring temperatures into the 70s for the afternoon. It should feel great to be outdoors.

Then Sunday morning looks like the coolest of the stretch with 50s north and 60s south of the lake early. Humidity starts to increase again perhaps as early as late Sunday.

A warmer set-up takes over for the start of next week.  We may see yet another cold front coming in midweek to late next week. 

The tropics are looking quieter with only a few disturbed areas to watch. All now have low chances of developing in the next five days.
