We have had very good luck in New Orleans in December. Usually the weather is very comfortable. But (there's always a but), the weather can be unpredictable. One year we arrived in NO to 72 degree weather, the next morning the temp was 36 and it didn't get a whole lot warmer the rest of the day. You should definitely bring a coat just in case.....

I was there last December and it rained more than I've ever seen in my life. It just poured.

There are plenty of sites that will give you historic weather averages, like weather.com and weatherunderground.com . My suggestion is to just wait until a few days before your trip and see what the forecast is and make some plans then.

I echo JLR. When I went in December a couple of years back (two!) we arrived the day after it snowed. Our weather for the week ended up being in the 70's. You just never know with NoLA. That old saying applies:

"Dont like the weather? Then just wait a while."

I've lived here all my life and you really don't know. Sometimes you can wear shorts on Christmas Day, sometimes it's a sweater and scarf.

All I can say is to check the weather reports before you come.

I too will be arriving in early December and will now have to bring warmer clothes as well as lighter weight clothes. I guess I will be taking more clothes just in case. I would love the weather to be in the 70's. I can only pray the weather will be nice and hoping no rain or snow.
