Looking great for Joe Cain Sunday!
Hi this is Meteorologist Matt Barrentine!
Joe Cain Sunday looks great. There will be a few more clouds around and it will be a bit chilly in the morning (upper30s), but it will be nice. Highs will top out in the mid 60s.
Unfortunately, Lundi Gras will be touch and go with rain, heavy at times moving in. At least it won’t be a cold rain. Highs will be near 70. Just be aware that rain will likely impact the days parades and you’ll need to plan accordingly.
It stays mild moving into Fat Tuesday, but will the rain be over? Not quite. There will be some rain around early, but it will be moving east and the showers should be diminishing as the parades start rolling. So, it doesn’t look like a washout, but be prepared for some wet weather.
Ash Wednesday and beyond…
Turning cooler in the long range with some possible freezes next Thursday and Friday mornings. Otherwise should be nice through the second half of the week and on into the beginning of March.
