Cloudy and chilly this weekend

Taylor's Saturday GMM First Alert Forecast

The clouds are going to stick around today, and it will be breezy with winds from the north. We’ll only warm up into the upper 40s this afternoon. Tonight will be cloudy and chilly with lows in the low 40s.

Sunday will be like a repeat of today. It will be mostly cloudy with highs near 50. A low pressure system moving nearby on Monday will likely bring widespread showers. While we’ll warm up into the low 50s, much colder air will follow in behind this system. If the cold air is able to meet up with enough moisture, there could be a little sleet or freezing rain mixed in. However, significant accumulations are expected to stay to our northwest. Temperatures will plummet into the low to mid 20s by Tuesday morning. This could lead to a pipe-busting freeze. Mardi Gras will be sunny, but chilly with highs in the mid 40s.
