Cloudy with a few stray showers possible for Lundi & Mardi Gras

Posted: Updated:

The cool and damp conditions will continue this evening and into Monday morning as lows will bottom out in the low to mid 40s.

To start off Lundi Gras there could be a few stray showers but most of the day will be rather cloudy, with maybe a couple peeks of sunshine, holding temperatures on the cooler side as highs will only climb into the low to mid 50s.

For the Queen's parade Monday evening it will be a chill one with temperatures hovering in the lower 50s, with a northerly breeze at 5-10 mph making it feel even cooler, so you might want to wear the heavier jacket.

As for Mardi Gras it looks like most of the festivities should be fine.

For some of the early morning events temperatures will again be on the cooler side in the lower 50s under mostly cloudy skies.

As for the late morning and afternoon parades the forecast looks a little better as temperatures will warm into the mid 60s.

But by Tuesday evening after most of the parades and festivities have wrapped up we could see a few scattered showers as a weak area of low pressure develops off the Texas coast and pushes onshore towards the Louisiana-Texas line.

This system could cause a few isolated showers to linger into the morning hours of Ash Wednesday/Valentine's Day.

But the big thing you will notice Wednesday is a southerly flow off the Gulf pushing warm air over Acadiana as highs will rise into the mid 70s.  

However, with this warm, moist Gulf air sliding onshore a couple scattered showers Wednesday afternoon can not be ruled out.

Thursday looks to be the pick day of the week as we could actually see some sunshine with highs warming into the upper 70s.

Friday starts off nice and mild with highs getting into the mid 70s but during the afternoon and evening our next cold front could swing down into Acadiana producing another round of scattered showers.

Next weekend will not be a wash out but a few isolated showers are possible both days.

Saturday could be on the cooler side behind the front with highs staying in the lower 60s but Sunday temperatures should rebound back into the lower 70s as a southerly flow returns off the Gulf.
