The weekend brings rain, then a drop in temps

Chilly tailgating conditions

Rain and a cold front are blowing into Southeast Louisiana.

"An increase in cloud cover and some showers are expected Saturday afternoon and evening," WWL-TV Meteorologist Chris Franklin forecast. "Only anticipating about a 40% chance with not a great deal of accumulation."

He says after the rain, it gets colder.

"This rainfall will be ahead of a cold front, dropping temps back into the 50s."

He says, however, it will hit 70 Saturday before temps start dropping.

So what about Sunday before the 3:40pm Saints game in the Superdome?

"Jackets needed for tailgating as the chill will be enhanced thanks to a breeze from the north and not much sunshine."

Here is Franklin's detailed forecast...


Overcast skies, warmer. 40% chance for scattered showers. Breezy. High: 71. Winds: SW/NW 8-15+.


Mostly cloudy. Much cooler, breezy. Low: S 49, N 45. High: 55.
