Thursday Morning: Wet, windy, and chilly today; Sunshine returns on Friday

Weather

StormTracker Forecast… Showers will continue through most of the day on Thursday. Heaviest of rain and highest rain chances will be during the morning and afternoon. Rain chances taper after that. Today is going to be a day when we’ve hit our high around midnight and temperatures will drop. We’ll likely be in the upper 40s and lower 50s by the afternoon. Dress warm!

Tonight: Gradual clearing through the night. Temperatures will fall into the mid 30s. Some areas may flirt with the freezing mark, so tonight may be a good idea to bring the plants indoors, or at least cover them with a sheet. Don’t forget about your pets.

Friday: Rejoice! We are expecting nothing but sunshine on Friday! Highs will top out in the low and mid 50s. A brief light freeze will be possible for a good portion of the area Friday night and into Saturday morning. Bring the plants in or cover them and please bring your pets indoors.

Weekend: A frosty start to Saturday, but with sunny skies in store for us, temperatures will moderate into the upper 50s. We will be dry and sunny for parades! Sunday will be a bit warmer with more cloud cover. A few showers may creep into the area late on Sunday.

Next Week: A storm system is expected to move into the region. Timing and intensity are still not set in stone, but as of now, it appears that the best chance for rain will come into play on Monday. Bring rain gear to parades. Rain chance near 60% and high temperature near 69. Overnight temperature around 51. A few showers may be around, but it won’t be a washout by any means on Mardi Gras. Rain chance is around 30%. Highs near 67.
