Get ready to get a break from the record breaking heat we've been having.

"A cold front will finally move across the area tonight into Thursday morning," WWL TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum said. "This front will not only drop the humidity, but also the temperatures!"

He says we get a taste of it overnight.

"Lows tonight will be in the mid 60s north and lower 70s south."

But, Nussbaum says we fall even further as we close in on the weekend.

"The cold front will move into the Gulf on Thursday and high pressure will build over us into the weekend. Thursday and Friday will be sunny and less humid. Thursday's high temperature will be in the lower 80s. Thursday night will be cool with lows in the lower 50s north and lower 60s south. Friday will only be in the upper 70s with lows in the 50s/60s into Saturday morning."

Another front keeps us cool into next week.
