(WBRZ News 2 Meteorologist Josh Eachus) Even with showers in the forecast tonight, a packed weekend of events couldn’t ask for a much better February forecast—especially when it comes to temperatures.

THE FORECAST

Today and Tonight: Clouds will increase quickly on Friday with temperatures making it into the upper 60s. Showers are expected to develop as early as afternoon, with a chance for rain and thunderstorms through Saturday Morning. This does mean that Friday Evening outdoor events like LSU Baseball will need to be wary of rain. All indications from high resolution future radar are that the highest rain chances will be between 6pm – 2am.     

Up Next: Skies will clear out in a hurry on Saturday and a dry and warm weekend is in store. High temperatures will climb into the upper 70s on Saturday. Overnight lows will stop in the upper 50s on Sunday Morning before thermometers take a run at 80 degrees during a mostly sunny afternoon. Fans at Alex Box Stadium along with Krewe of Mystique and Krewe of Mutts revelers will call the weather a treat when compared to some past February events! Rain and thunderstorms return to the forecast by Tuesday.
