Good Morning, New Orleans, as a beautiful Tuesday and Valentine’s Day continues coming off of Monday’s gorgeous forecast!

Sunshine is expected again with even warmer temperatures in the forecast for your afternoon, but clouds are continually building back in!

Highs will reach the 70s Tuesday afternoon, with upper 70s returning Wednesday. A southerly breeze will continue through the evening as well with winds anywhere from teens to twenties!

Isolated to scattered showers are possible tonight to Wednesday, with each day showing around a 20 or 30 percent chance of rain. Rain chances rise to around 70 percent Thursday as a storm system moves through ahead of our next cold front. We’ll top out near 80 and be watching severe weather potential and timing closely.

Behind the front, temperatures will be much colder Friday into the weekend before Mardi Gras! You can expect 50s for highs Friday and Saturday with 60s by Sunday.
