New Orleans Seasons

Jackson Square - Christmas Decorations

Winter

The winter months tend to range from the low 40s to the mid-60s. Because it is humid, it may feel a little colder than it is. Pack a jacket, stockings/pants and some boots - layering is key. The Holidays, New Years, sporting events and Mardi Gras will keep you busy.

Check out more information on December, January, and February in New Orleans.

French Quarter Festival

Spring

Spring is festival season in New Orleans and one of the prettiest times to visit. Temperatures average from the low 50s to the upper 70s. Flowers are blooming, but there are occasional showers. Pack a rain jacket, comfortable shoes, sunglasses, and your favorite festival outfit for the day time. A light sweater may be wanted for night time.

Summer

There’s no getting around it–Summer in the South is warm. June through August ranges from the mid 70s to upper 90s, and rain is common. Pack a sun hat, a bathing suit, a rain jacket and light clothing. Snowballs and swimming pools are calling your name.

Fall along the Mississippi River

Fall

The crisp air and dropping temperatures make fall a beloved season around here. In early September, temperatures remain in the upper 80s, but begin to drop for the rest of the season. You can expect temperatures from the upper 70s to the mid 50s from October to November. Fall is the busiest time of year with festivals, sports, and events galore.
