NEW ORLEANS — A weak front did move through, although the cooler air lagged farther behind. Areas in SW MS and the Northshore did only rise into the 60s this afternoon, the Shouthshore was well into the 70s, but cooler than yesterday! A 2nd surge of colder air arrives tomorrow morning with falling temperatures through the day. We'll spend a very wet day generally in the low 60s in the early morning, then 50s for the rest of the day. As far as Thursday's parades go, the later the better. Models do have rain starting to tapper off by the evening, but we'll keep a 40-50% chance as the parades get started around 5:30. Through the course of the route, rain will be moving out. Chilly temps on the way for Friday morning, 30s and 40s to begin the morning and an afternoon high of only 55°. Friday night looks for windy conditions and temps in the 40s! Near freezing Saturday morning on the Northshore and low 40s in the city. Sunny skies and a high of 60°. Increasing clouds Sunday with a few isolated showers possible late in the day and highs in the mid 60s. Scattered showers Lundi Gras and a high of 70° and models very different for rain chances Mardi Gras Day. The GFS has 80% and the Euro none. Splitting the difference for Mardi Gras with the mention of some scattered showers possible during the day. Strong cold front looks to move through on Ash Wednesday.
