Monday will be warmer and rain will back off for a bit...
Hi this is Meteorologist Matt Barrentine!
Monday will start mild and foggy along the Gulf Coast. Lows will be in the lower 50s (6 or 7 degrees above average) and the fog could be quite thick in spots.
As the day goes along a warm front will pass through our area, warming our temps into the low 70s for highs. Skies will likely stay cloudy, but the good news is that rain chances are pretty low for most of our Monday.
By Monday evening a few showers could begin popping up, so be aware of that if you are headed to the Monday night parade in downtown Mobile. At least it will be warm! Temperatures will be in the 60s at parade time.
An approaching system will bring some heavier rain in for Tuesday. Nothing severe is expected, but the rain could get heavy late in the afternoon and into the evening. This could certainly impact the LaShe's parade, so keep an eye on the radar.
Rain chances will continue into Wednesday and Thursday as well. So it stays icky.
In the long-range, Friday, Saturday, and Joe Cain Sunday looks good for all the Mardi Gras fun, but the extended models are bringing some rain back in the picture for Lundi Gras and Fat Tuesday. There isn’t good agreement on exact timing and intensity that far down the line, so stay tuned…
