Chris Franklin - WWL-TV Meteorologist

Parades look okay tonight as any rain will begin dissipating, most has been on the Northshore today, but expect mild temps and muggy conditions. Fog could begin rolling in later this evening as well. Early tomorrow looks dry, but getting warm as highs reach the upper 70s and low 80s. Showers and storms primarily in the late afternoon and evening hours. We have a low end risk of some severe weather with the greatest potential near our viewing area from a line between Baton Rouge to McComb northward. South and east from this line the chance looks slim. Rain doesn't look to last for very long. Line should quickly move out by Saturday night and Sunday morning you'll notice the cooler and less humid conditions! Beautiful Sunday and Monday before a return flow and disturbance brings back a chance for some showers on Tuesday.Could see isolated to scattered shower chances as we head into the middle of next week. A few more fronts look to be on the horizon triggering a chance for showers and storms. It'll all be a matter of timing as to whether or not they affect the big weekend of parades and Mardi Gras day. Stay tuned...
