Colder Trend Coming...

After a delightfully warm weekend for parades & Family Gras, I’m sorry to say we will not have a repeat for the main weekend of Carnival.   In fact, Tuesday will be our last warm day for perhaps the next 10-14 days as all models are brining down some of the coldest air of this season deep into the Gulf south.  As usual, timing of storm systems will be the key to which parades are dry & which will get wet.  Regardless, none will enjoy a warm ride even if they are dry.    The 1st system will arrive during the day on Tuesday (no parades) bringing us some showers & T-Storms.  The heaviest storms should stay to our north with cooler air filtering in behind the front on Wednesday.  Colder air will be in place Thursday & Friday with clouds streaming back in on Saturday.  RIGHT NOW, Saturday’s parades look dry, but some rain could develop after dark for Endymion.   Sunday looks to go into the dumper with lots of rain and very chilly temperatures.    As that system pulls away, Monday looks dry and cool but another surge of colder air plows through before dawn on Mardi Gras.  Highs could stay in the 40s with brisk winds making it feel even colder.   Stay tuned!
