Tuesday Morning: Showers and upper 70s today; Much cooler weather to come

Weather

StormTracker Forecast…A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect through 10:00 A.M. for our area. Please use extreme caution whilst out on the roads this morning. Fog will lift by the mid or late morning hours.

Skies will continue to be cloudy to mostly cloudy. Thanks to a warm front, temperatures will warm into the mid and upper 70s by the afternoon. Widely scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms may develop this afternoon and evening ahead of an approaching cold front. The rain chance will be around 30-40%. Thankfully, we are not anticipating severe weather. The cold front will pass through the area late tonight and into the overnight hours. Showers may pass from north to south with the front. Thanks to the front, temperatures will be in the 50s by the morning hours.

The cold front will be to our south in the Gulf of Mexico by daybreak. Rain chance will be around 40-50% on Wednesday. Rain chance and rain coverage will spike Wednesday night through Thursday. Not just that, but it will be significantly cooler on Thursday! We will hit our high temperature around midnight and temperatures will drop after that. Afternoon temperatures will likely be in the low and mid 50s on Thursday.

We finally clear out and dry out by Friday! We will start the morning off in the 30s, but thankfully with a lot of sunshine, we will warm into the mid 50s by the afternoon. We are expecting to stay mostly dry and pleasant on Saturday before rain chances increase on Sunday. Also, we are keeping our eye on next week because more rain may move in on Lundi and Mardi Gras, but it’s still too early to say who gets what. Stay tuned!
