Get ready for rain, then a big temperature drop.

"Big changes are coming to our weather today," WWL-TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum forecasts. "A strong cold front will usher in much colder air today and it will stick around all weekend."

He says we will be cloudy and windy with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms today as the front moves across the New Orleans area. 

"A few downpours will be possible. After morning temperatures in the 70s, we will fall to around 60 by 5:00pm. Tonight will become partly cloudy, windy and much colder. Lows north around 45 and south around 50."

He says after highs in the 50s Saturday, it gets even colder for Sunday morning.  

"Lows north around 40 and south around 49." 

"Clouds will increase on Sunday as an area of low pressure develops over the Western Gulf. We will see spotty showers moving over us during the day too. High temperatures will only get into the lower 60s."
