DENSE FOG ADVISORY until 9 a.m. Monday for areas north and west of the lake.
An upper-level low over Texas is headed to the Louisiana Coast later today, and that will send plenty of Gulf Moisture over us today. After the fog dissipates, we will have a mostly cloudy and very mild afternoon with a slight chance for a shower. Highs will be in the upper 70s.
A surface area of low pressure will form along the Texas Coast tonight along with a trough of low pressure. Together, they will move along the Louisiana Coast. This will send us scattered to numerous showers with a few thunderstorms after midnight. Some of the rain will be heavy at times and will continue into Tuesday Morning. Lows will be in the lower 60s.
Tuesday will start out with the rain and storms. The latest forecast models show the rain continuing until Noon. Then we will be mostly cloudy with just a slight chance for a shower through Tuesday Evening. Rain totals will be around 1-3 inches. Watch out for some flooding issues in areas that typically hold water during rain events. Highs will be in the lower 70s. Tuesday Night will be partly cloudy and cool with lows in the 50s north and 60s south of the lake.
Wednesday will be a drier day with partly cloudy skies. Highs will not be cooler behind this system, so we will climb back into the mid 70s. Wednesday Evening will be great for the Mardi Gras Parades with temperatures falling into the 60s. Overnight lows will be in the 50s north and 60s south.
Thursday and Friday will be nice days with partly cloudy skies and very mild highs in the upper 70s. Again, we will have some very nice weather for the parades Thursday and Friday Evenings with temperatures in the 60s.
A cold front will move through on Friday Night after the parades. It will bring us partly cloudy skies with a slight chance for a shower. Lows will be in the 50s on both sides of the lake.
The weekend is looking fantastic with lower humidity and very mild highs in the lower 70s each day under partly cloudy skies.
