Another Cold One…February 27th, 2014 at 4:34 pm by Jason Smith under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
The late February sun helped warm things up a bit this afternoon. Winds are also a little lighter across the area. After noon temps made it into the mid 50’s. It should be fairly chilly for tonight’s Mystic Striper parade.
Temperatures should drop again to near freezing in most areas tonight. We should be back into the 60’s by Friday. A return flow sets up gradually, as we head into through Friday night late, with little chance of rain. This will really help improve our temperatures for the weekend.
Mardi Gras Weekend
Warmer temperatures are expected both Saturday and Sunday. We expect highs in the low 70’s both days. Rain is not expected. We do see showers in the forecast for Lundi Gras Monday. The chances are much lower for Fat Tuesday. Temperatures should stay fairly warm until Fat Tuesday. Both Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday should be much cooler.
