The forecast this week calls for dry conditions and temps a few degrees below normal.

"High pressure remains west of us today and we will have plenty of high clouds around. This will filter the sunshine, so we will not be clear yet," according to WWL-TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum.  "It will be cool with highs in the upper 60s."

He says the clouds will clear out tonight. 

"We will be chilly with lows in the 40s north and 50s south." 

Sunshine returns as high pressure sits over the area tomorrow.

"It will be cool with highs in the mid 60s."  

Spring officially arrives on Wednesday at 4:58 PM. 

Nussbaum says, "More pleasant and cool weather is expected for Wednesday with highs in the upper 60s."

These temperatures will be below the normal as we average around 72° for a high this time of year.

Thursday we hit 70.

"High pressure will build back over us on Friday with mild highs in the 70s." 

Weekend Outlook: The area of high pressure will move east of us on Saturday. This will bring back southerly winds, partly cloudy skies and milder highs in the mid 70s. A cold front will move into the area on Sunday with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. We stay mild with highs in the mid 70s.
