The cold weather will be with us for at least another night, before South Louisiana begins to warm up somewhat this weekend. The trade-off: A higher chance of rain on Sunday.
In Baton Rouge and Lafayette, early morning temperatures Saturday could hit the upper 20s, before warming to the upper 40s during the day. There is a 30% chance of rain Saturday night. Rain chances increase to 50% Sunday with lows in the mid-30s and highs in the mid-50s.
In New Orleans, Saturday will start out in the lower 30s and warm up to the upper 40s. Saturday night will not be as cool, but there’s a slight chance of rain showers. Sunday’s rain chances increase to 50%, with highs in the upper 50s.
