After a cold and frosty morning north of the lake we will have some gorgeous weather today. High pressure will sit over us, and that will keep us clear. It will be a little milder today with highs in the lower to mid 60s. Tonight will not be as cold, but it will still be chilly with lows in the 40s on both sides of the lake.
An upper-level low will move out of Texas during the day on Friday and it will move across the Northern Gulf Coast Friday Night. We will see clouds increasing through Friday Morning with cloudy skies by the afternoon. A few showers will start to move over us on Friday Evening, so keep that in mind if you are headed to any Mardi Gras Parades. We will be warmer with highs in the upper 60s.
The Gulf Low will move across the Louisiana Coast on Friday Night. This will spread scattered showers and thunderstorms across the region with some heavy rain from New Orleans to the Coast. The heaviest rain will arrive overnight. Lows will be in the 50s.
Saturday Morning will start out with the rain and storms, but it should wrap up by 9 AM according to the latest forecast models. Then we will be partly cloudy and warmer with highs in the mid 70s. It looks like the rain will be out of here just in time for the 11 AM parades, and it will stay nice for the parades all day.
Sunday is now looking like a beautiful and very mild day. We will be partly cloudy with highs in the upper 70s to around 80°. Again, perfect weather for the parades.
