Joe Cain Sunday, a cold front moves into our area. As it does, showers & storms will erupt out ahead of it...and some could be strong to severe. The rain threat is less in the morning...only isolated chances. By midday, a few more showers are possible with increasing rain/storm coverage as we move into the late afternoon & evening. Highs for Sunday will reach the upper 60s near 70 degrees.
Monday, the cold front will move just south of the Gulf Coast & stall. So, Monday morning's rain coverage will be higher than Monday afternoon. Yet, throughout the day...keep an umbrella handy.
Fat Tuesday, the previously mentioned stalled front will move back north as a warm front in the morning. That's going to put us in what's called the "Warm Sector" where the atmosphere will be prime for plentiful showers & storms (some could be severe). Heavy rainfall is also possible...with 2-3 inches possible.
The front will cross by Wednesday morning, with dry weather returning thru the end of the week. Colder weather also moves in...with 30s by Friday morning.
HAPPY MARDI GRAS!
