Saints tailgating weather looks humid, but the chance for rain looks low. A real fall cold front arrives late Monday.
NEW ORLEANS — We get pretty nice weather on Sunday, as skies stay partly cloudy and most of us stay dry. A stray shower may be possible, but we’re not expecting a lot. Most storms will stay offshore and toward Alabama and Florida. Temperatures will reach middle to upper 80s in the afternoon, and humidity will edge up – but it won’t last long.
That’s because a real cold front will swing in late Monday to finally bring us a welcome taste of fall.
Monday will be mostly cloudy, warm and humid with a few daytime showers possible. The front will move through Monday late afternoon into the evening, and it could bring some showers and a few thunderstorms as it crosses our area. A strong storm is possible, but right now the severe threat looks low.
Tuesday will start with clouds, breezy and cooler in the 50s and 60s. Any leftover sprinkles should end in the early morning, likely before sunrise. Clouds will clear during the day when temperatures will only reach middle 70s. With the lower humidity and breeze, it will be quite a noticeable difference!
Comfortable, sunny weather follows all the way into the weekend. Temperatures will gradually increase, but a reinforcing shot of cool and dry air arrives Thursday to keep it quite pleasant into the weekend.
No big activity is expected in the tropics in the next several days.
