After a fairly wet weekend, Monday brings a mostly cloudy, breezy and dry day.  Look for temperatures getting into the low 60s.  It will still feel cool.

What about our Christmas?

"High pressure builds in on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to bring us nice but not-super-cold weather," said WWL-TV meteorologist Alexandra Cranford.  "Mornings will start in the upper 40s to 50s, and afternoons will be partly cloudy and mild near 70 degrees." 

More clouds expected by Thursday, but comfortable weather stretching into Friday. 

Maybe some showers by next weekend thanks to another front.
