Fat Tuesday Forecast: Low Rain Chance and High Temperatures


Happy Mardi Gras!  We start Fat Tuesday misty and end up very warm.

The morning starts with patch fog and light mist.  So far, visibility has dropped to a mile at a few locations.  It’ll be gone by mid-morning.

We start the day mild and end up very warm.  Average high for this time of year is 67 degrees; we’ll start in the low and mid 60s and warm to 80 degrees in Mobile–a few degrees warmer in Leakesville, Evergreen, and Grove Hill, and a few degrees cooler at the beaches.

There’s a skimpy 10% chance that you’ll need an umbrella today.

Parade forecast: cloudy and mild for the Order of Athena at 10:30am, humid mid 70s for the Knights of Revelry and Comic Cowboys at 12:30pm, very warm temps near 80 for MAMGA at 2:00pm, and breezy low 70s to wrap things up with the Order of Myths at 6:00 pm.

Radar is quiet now, and the forecast model shows clouds this morning giving way to a mix of sun and clouds in the middle of the day.  Skies stay partly cloudy to mostly cloudy for the remainder of the day.

The News 5 Free Weather app is handy on a day like today!

Strong thunderstorms arrive tomorrow with a small risk of severe weather late in the day and into the evening.  We’ll stay near 80 Ash Wednesday.  Cooler, drier, and sunnier days are in store Thursday through Sunday.  A slight chance of showers returns Sunday and Monday.
