Looks like I will have some travel time around "the holidays" this year - I was considering a trip to Nola from Chicago. I am thinking about moving there retirement time, about 6 years or so.
Would this be an okay time to visit? I'll probably be by myself -
Thanks!

The weather that time of year is a crapshoot in South LA. It could be shorts weather, and it could also be coat weather--you could encounter both if you stay for more than a day or two.

It won't be July or August weather, though; you won't likely suffer heat stroke I say yes, December is a great time to visit. New Years Eve in New Orleans is fun.

You'll be fine in December. Bring a jacket in case it gets cold, but don't expect heavy coat kinda cold. For the winter, I usually have a hoodie and layered t-shirts when it gets to around 30F and it keeps me pretty warm mostly. Though, mind you, the weather can feel a lot like fall than winter a lot, so there will be days in the winter here you don't even need a jacket!

Heavy coat means two different things in Louisiana and Chicago. It can very cold when gulf winds start to whip and the humidity is high. It can be 35 but feel like 15 or 20.

Was defiantly going on his definition of a heavy coat . Those kinds of coats are frankly way overboard down here even if the humidity does make things get nippy.

That warm winter of 11/12, I was wearing shorts and flip-flops early Jan.

You most definitely need a coat of some sort in the winter. While not always a sure thing. Many nights are very cold in NOLA where I have to wear my wool car coat and scarf. Granted I will wear a tshirt underneath mostly. But I have spent MANY a night shivering to death because I thought it wasn't cold enough to wear the coat (or even with a coat on).

Ditto. I've been cold plenty of times down here but I guess it's because of the fact that I'm not used to northern winters.

I meant coat as in a car coat or a peacoat...not something you'd see an eskimo wearing.
