Summer weather returns this afternoon with highs around 80 degrees.  The seasons change in a hurry, though.  Tomorrow highs won't hit 60 degrees.

"Our weather goes downhill this evening and overnight as the cold front moves through," WWL-TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum forecasts. "We will have scattered showers and thunderstorms."

He says we will feel the weather change during the late evening hours.
  
"It will turn much cooler and breezy once the front passes over us," Nussbaum explained. "Low temperatures will be in the upper 40s north and lower 50s south."

Saturday morning will be blustery and raw.

"Saturday will start out with plenty of clouds and a few lingering showers early in the morning.  The clouds will clear out by Noon and we will be clear, windy and brisk!  High temperatures will only be in the upper 50s, but the wind will make it feel like the 40s."

Nussbaum says Saturday night will have some of the coldest air we have felt in a while.

"We will be clear, breezy and chilly with lows in the mid 30s north with some patchy frost.  It will be in the lower 40s south.  It will feel like the 30s south of the lake with the wind.  Brrr!"

Sunday will be sunny, cool and breezy with high temperatures only in the lower 60s.
