FINALLY! We will have some great weather for the Mardi Gras Parades this week and this weekend! The parades tonight will have mostly clear skies with temperatures falling through the 60s, so you may want that light jacket or sweater.
Thursday and Friday will be very mild as you line up the floats in the afternoon with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the upper 70s. When the parades roll, we will fall in the 60s.
A cold front moves through on Friday Night/Saturday Morning and it will bring us a slight chance for rain. Fortunately, it looks like any showers will arrive after the parades roll on Friday and before the roll on Saturday. Then it will be mostly sunny, breezy and much cooler on Saturday. Sunday will be partly cloudy and still cool. Highs will be in the upper 60s each day.
The early outlook for Lundi Gras and Mardi Gras has us much warmer than the past few years. We will be mostly cloudy and have a slight chance for a shower each day. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s! That is SO much better than the 40° temperatures we had the last few years.
Make sure you get out and enjoy this perfect weather for the parades this year!
