MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – A cold front is expected to slowly move east across the Gulf Coast tonight and tomorrow. This will lead to a chance of rain and a good amount of cloud cover.
A south and southwest wind will continue areawide through the evening and overnight period. We will keep the chance for a few passing showers and isolated storms around tonight through early Tuesday morning. This means that there could be a few showers around as some of the first parades get underway on Fat Tuesday. Temperatures will start off mild in the lower 60s.
Skies will stay cloudy through most of the day with an occasional brief shower possible. Temperatures will reach the upper 60s and lower 70s prior to the cold front passing through. Winds will begin to turn out of the northwest. A few breaks in the clouds will be possible late in the day, but don’t anticipate much sunshine. Skies will begin to clear out on Wednesday as drier air begins to settle in. Temperatures will cool down too. Highs will reach the lower 60s and morning lows will start out in the 40s.
This will begin a nice treat of dry weather and sunny skies. The second half of the week will stay quiet and cooler. Morning will be chilly with lows dipping into the 30s. Highs will struggle to get out of the 50s. The air mass will moderate through the weekend with highs rebounding back into the middle 60s. Saturday and Sunday will stay dry.
