Clouds will be on the increase all day as an area of low pressure develops along the SE Texas Coast. This low will headed toward the Louisiana Coast by tonight. We will have spotty showers moving into town later this afternoon and into the evening hours. This means we will now see some rain for the Mardi Gras Parades this evening, so bring your rain gear. Highs will be in the upper 60s today.
Scattered to numerous showers and a few thunderstorms will move through the region tonight as the low moves along our coast. Some of the rain could be heavy at times, but flooding is not a concern. Lows will be in the 50s.
There will still be a few showers lingering over the area when you wake up on Saturday Morning, but they will be ending as the low move east of Louisiana. Then we will have a mix of sun and clouds with only a slight chance for a shower during the day as an area of high pressure builds toward us. This will mean we will have some decent weather for the parades. Highs will be in the mid 70s. Saturday Evening will be partly cloudy and cool with temperatures in the 60s for the parades. Saturday Night will be mostly clear with patchy dense fog. Lows will be in the 50s.
Sunday will be a very nice day and perfect for the parades as high pressure builds over the region. Expect plenty of sunshine once the morning dense fog dissipates. Highs will be in the upper 70s.
The weather will be pretty unsettled next week. Monday will be the transition day between nice weather and stormy weather. We will be mostly cloudy and warm with a slight chance for rain. Highs will be around 80.
Another Gulf Low will slowly move across the Northern Gulf of Mexico Tuesday and Wednesday. This will spread scattered showers and thunderstorms over us each day. Some of the storms could be strong to severe on Tuesday and Wednesday. However, I'm not expecting anything widespread. Highs will be in the 70s each day. We will dry out on Thursday with highs in the 70s as the low moves away from Louisiana.
