We are coming to New Orleans late May and wondered if the heat and humidity is like Florida.
Just not sure what to wear and pack.

in May it isnt as bad as late summer. Right now its actually pretty nice in Louisiana.
Come June, it will be like walking through a swimming pool.

I'm ready for winter already. Unfortunately it's going to get hotter and more humid before it gets colder.

Wow, really? I think we have been very lucky this year. Usually spring lasts for 2 weeks. I haven't had to run my AC that much yet.

Ugh... it certainly wasn't cool today! At least the humidity has been relatively low compared to summer months. Come the end of May, the humidity will start climbing. I don't think you'll see anything lower than 80, maybe mid 60's at the lowest at night. You'll need summer clothes and a sweater for when you're in places with the AC blasting. Bring an umbrella too.

In my opinion, New Orleans is so much more "in it's element", so to speak, during the summer...scorching hot and humid most of the day, then cooling thunderstorms and torrential downpours in the afternoon. Maybe I just feel that way because that's the weather I got used to when I first moved here last June, but whatever it is, I love it. Comfortable, normal weather doesn't feel like New Orleans .

Thank you for coming to my beautiful city.

It's not that bad during this month. Cotton fabric works well down here and you should try my crawfish pies and Italian stuffed artichokes before you leave here.

I can turn you on to the places that the locals go for really great food.
