The first real cold front of the season is blowing through Southeast Louisiana.

"A cold front will move through today and that will FINALLY bring us a taste of Fall," WWL-TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum forecasts.  "The cooler air arrives tonight!"

He says morning temps for Friday will be 20 degrees lower tomorrow than today in several spots.

"We will be clear with a light breeze and lows will be in the lower 50s north and lower 60s south. Ahhhhhhh, so nice!!"

The National Weather Service says it will be the coolest readings we've seen in five months.

Nussbaum says tomorrow will be a gorgeous day with low humidity and high temperatures only in the upper 70s.

"Saturday will start out cool with morning temperatures in the 50s and 60s. We will be warm in the afternoon, but it will not be humid with sunny skies. High temperatures will be in the lower 80s."

We warm back up for Sunday as we wait for the next cold front next week.
