Winds Increasing, Turning Cooler


A quiet, chilly start gives way to a very windy day.  Winds pick up from the northwest mid-morning as a cold front sweeps through, and by this afternoon winds will be 15-25 mph gusting to 35.  Lots of sunshine and a high of 57.  Typically, cold fronts bring rain and thunder; this time the atmosphere is dry, so skies stay sunny.

Winds will be brisk for the afternoon parades today, and it will be very windy for the Infant Mystics in Mobile and the OOMMs in Fairhope this evening.  Parade temps in the mid 50s, but the wind will make it feel colder.

Fat Tuesday will be chilly.  Starting near 30 and topping out at 48. Brisk north winds early will die down as the day progresses. If you’re staking out a spot early, wind chills could be in the 20s.

We stay dry Ash Wednesday through Friday…and probably beyond.  Highs warm a bit each day to the mid 60s by the end of the week.  Lows warm from near 30 Wednesday to the mid 40s Saturday.
