A cold start, Christmas Eve started off in the upper 20s. The remainder of the day will feature clear skies as a high pressure system sits off to our north, centered in Missouri. This high and its clockwise surface flow are resulting in a northerly wind pulling down cold air from the Great White North. That chilly air is certainly moderating a little before reaching Southern Louisiana, but no less it is making our weather fall below average on the temperature scale with highs in the middle 50. Get comfy and cozy tonight as thermometers will fall back all the way into the upper 20s.
