(WWL.com) - After a cold Saturday morning, we'll remain chilly all afternoon and through the weekend.

And, it'll be even colder Saturday night into Sunday morning, with freeze warnings for both sides of the lake.

"Don't fret the fact that you're not in Minnesota to watch the Saints' game," says WWL-TV meteorologist Chris Franklin. "We're getting our own taste of some northern-like temperatures, as we'll stay in the 40s for our afternoon highs both Saturday ands Sunday."

Chris says we'll see more sunshine today, but with a breeze from the north, you'll want to bundle up! 

A Hard Freeze Warning is in effect for the Northshore tonight, as temps dip into the low and mid 20s. That means pipes will need to be protected here. Southshore, we're expecting a light to moderate freeze, with a Freeze Warning in effect Saturday night through Sunday morning. 

Highs will only make it into the 40s again Sunday, but we'll warm to the 50s by Monday. That's before a front moves into the area Tuesday, bringing mostly cloudy skies and a 30 percent chance for a few showers. A little wintry mix is possible farther north, but little to no accumulation is expected.

Cold again for Wednesday, before temps begin to climb toward the end of the week. Rain chances could also come up by Thursday and Friday.
