59F Forecast for Nola on Sunday, too cold?

What can I expect if in fact 59F is the temperature at Nola on Sunday?
I've not had that much experience with cold temp.

take a bit longer to warm up the tires.
Take it easy for the first few laps. No joke here.

After that you should be ok. It'll be a bit chilly, but once you get working itll be no big deal.

I recommend a slightly thicker undershirt under the leathers. 59 feels ok standing around, but at track speed it'll get cold!

I really like that kind of temperature, and you should be fine. Layer up under the leathers in the morning, but by afternoon you might need de-layer.

Always take it easy the first few sessions, but NOLA has crazy grip. Tires should be fine with a lap or so. If you have warmers, even better.
