Happy Tuesday and Happy New Year! The forecast for your holiday last week was extremely warm, and now we have been waking up in the 30s! Hard freeze warnings and freeze warnings remained in effect until 10AM. Pets and plants won’t need to be inside again tonight.

Tonight, anticipate 40s or 50s on both sides of Lake Pontchartrain, and rain chances remain low, so no more concerns for pets and plants at that point.

Once again, a warmer forecast for New Orleans and southeast Louisiana on Wednesday and Thursday before another cold front arrives Friday!

Temperatures will reach the 70s again Wednesday.
