Rain and t-storms loomed just to the North today, but Mardi Gras is expected to be much drier! Most of the three Northern coastal counties saw some rain today, but it never pushed far enough South to reach the coastline. Tomorrow (Tuesday/Mardi Gras) will see the skies clear some, but clouds are expected to linger over the area for the next few days. Despite the high moisture content and instability, rain is barely even a possibility for tomorrow, so the parades will see no issues other than the near-record warm & humid conditions. Wednesday afternoon will bring the cold front, and with it our biggest chance of any active or severe weather. Skies will begin clearing overnight on Wednesday and will bring chilly temperatures back for a few days. Don’t expect too much cooling though; afternoon highs will remain in the upper 60s to start the weekend, but warm and rainy conditions are primed to start next week.
