Mardi Gras Forecast

By: SevereHurricane, 5:05 PM GMT on February 15, 2010

The weather looks to remain quiet and boring for the rest of the work week; that includes Mardi Gras. Highs today and tomorrow will be in the 40's and 50's with lows near freezing on the Southshore and below freezing on the northshore. We will begin to warm up as the week wears on; by Friday highs could be in the 60's as Zonal Flow sets up aloft and as Surface High pressure slides east. Things look to get a little more exciting this weekend when a very weak upper trough slides through the Great Lakes region which advects a cold front into our area. With the cold front will come a chance of showers and thunderstorms; although the threat will not be significant. The front might even stall around our area due to Zonal flow.
