We're dry, but chilly! With high pressure perched to our north in Southern Illinois, the weather has calmed and cleared significantly. But a push of cold air from the north is certainly being felt across Southeastern Louisiana. This afternoon will see highs running 15° below average as thermometers recover from a morning in the 20s to a day in the upper 40s. Once again tonight, readings will drop below freezing with skies continuing to be mainly clear. The high pressure will reach the eastern coast on Saturday, shifting our winds to the southeast and sending afternoon highs through the upper 50s. Just a few clouds will work their way back into the area, but some sun is also expected.
