The weather we had this weekend is hard to beat, especially during Mardi Gras season. Tonight will be no exception. In fact, tonight will be a little better than last night. Temperatures won’t be as quick too cool off. We will only bottom out in the middle 50s under mostly clear skies. So maybe a sweater, but we stay away from jacket weather.
However, like all good things, they must end at some point… Changes are coming to the forecast tomorrow in the form of rain chances. Monday morning will be dry, but clouds will gradually move in and by noon we will see mostly cloudy skies. After lunch rain chances will begin to rise. Right now shower chances are at 40%. There is also a chance for isolated thunderstorms tomorrow. Right now we are not thinking severe weather, but there is a marginal risk so it is not impossible. A marginal risk means just be aware just in case a thunderstorm does become severe. On top of rain chances the warm air will return. Highs tomorrow will be in the mid and upper 70s.
Now for the important Fat Tuesday forecast. Good news is it’s looking much better than Monday, but not 100% better. Highs will be in the upper 70s and there will be a slim chance for an isolated shower or two. Rain chances right now only at 10%
Ash Wednesday will see a return of higher rain and thunderstorms chances, back to 40%. Highs will be near 80 degrees. A cold front will move in Wednesday night and this will clear us out and bring some cooler temperatures for the end of the upcoming work-week.
