Incoming high pressure brings much cooler and drier air to the region. Highs today will top in the upper 50s. When the good times start rolling at 6:30pm in downtown Mobile with the Order of Polka Dots hitting the streets, it will be cool and crisp with clear conditions and a temp around 50. Take the jacket or a sweater for sure! Overnight you'll need the heaters going once again as lows dip into the mid 30s.
It's going to be a fantastic Friday with bright skies overhead with afternoon readings hovering around 60. For the Friday night Mardi Gras parades, as well as Saturday and Sunday's the weather could not be any better. Temps get bumped up a little bit on Saturday and Sunday as highs reach the mid 60s.
Rain-free conditions are in the forecast all the way through next Wednesday!
