NEW ORLEANS — A few showers will be possible early Sunday as a weak cold front arrives. The front will finally bring a break in the record heat we had this past week - high temperatures Sunday will only make it to around 80 degrees (as opposed to near 90 like we've seen lately). Clouds will linger during the day, and temperatures tonight will be mainly in the upper 60s to about 70 degrees.

A few showers may return Monday ahead of a stronger low pressure system and cold front. That could spark some showers and a few thunderstorms late Monday night into Tuesday.

Finally, some noticeably cooler and drier air will arrive late Tuesday into Wednesday.

We'll get less humid air and seasonable temperatures through Thursday before some rain returns Friday and Saturday.
