NEW ORLEANS — ***FREEZE WARNING UNTIL 9 AM for the Northshore and River/Bayou Parishes***

BRRR! It is a very cold and clear morning with a light freeze for areas north and west of New Orleans. Temperatures on the Northshore will be in the upper 20s, the Southshore in the 30s and areas west of town near 32°. Bundle up as you head to work and school! 

An area of high pressure will build over us today. It will be sunny, but chilly with high temperatures in the upper 40s. Tonight will start out clear, but it will become partly cloudy by daybreak on Tuesday. Low temperatures will fall to the upper 20s/lower 30s north of the lake with another light freeze possible. South of the lake will fall to the upper 30s with some frost possible. Protect plants, pets and people on both sides of the lake. 

Wednesday will become a transition day between the cold weather and wet weather.  We will be cloudy and chilly with highs in the mid 50s. 

An area of low pressure will move off the Texas Coast on Thursday and it will track right across the Louisiana Coast. This will spread scattered showers across the region from the morning and into Thursday night. Some downpours will be possible. We will warm up into the mid 60s. This system will be east of us by Friday morning with lows in the 40s north and 50s south. Friday will become partly cloudy and pleasant with highs in the lower 60s. 

Weekend Outlook: An area of high pressure will build back over us all weekend. This will make it sunny and comfortable with high temperatures in the lower 60s - right where it should be for late-January.
