After a week-long warm-up, freezing temperatures return to metro New Orleans tonight.

"Temperatures will go from the 40s through the 30s this evening," said Channel 4 Chief Meteorologist Carl Arredondo. "We're going to have a hard freeze on the Northshore tonight in the mid 20s, a light freeze on the Southshore, upper 20s to low 30s."

Carl says the weekend will be cold, but at least it will be sunny: "Lots of sunshine over the weekend. We'll still have freezes on both sides of the lake and temperatures in the afternoon in the 40s!"
