Currently in New Orleans —March 16, 2023
The weather, currently.
If you have hated our cool down these last couple of days, you will get a reprieve tomorrow. High temperatures here in New Orleans will be back up into the mid 70s with mostly sunny skies. It will be a wee bit breezy out there though with winds getting up to 15-20mph throughout the day and into the afternoon.
I will personally be taking our dogs on an extra long walk and enjoy the perfect spring day we will have. Thursday evening will get considerably cloudy and there will be a slight chance of some rain overnight. It will continue to be breezy with low temperatures mild near 66°F. If you enjoyed the cool down, stay tuned, it will be making a comeback this weekend! —Leslie Holder

Today, we shared a story from Grist, about how climate change is making atmospheric rivers in California much wetter and more intense. These changing patterns are making flooding along the West Coast significantly worse.
