Clouds have been on the increase throughout the day ahead of our next cold front that is arriving in northwest portions of Mississippi. This will slide through the state and arrive in northwestern parts of the viewing area close to sunset and quickly exit the southeastern parts of the viewing area by about 1am. As the cold front passes, we'll see some showers develop, but these showers will be very quick moving and not dampen too much any evening Valentine's Day plans.
Behind our cold front, a cool Saturday lies ahead as we will struggle to warm into the low 50s despite ample sunshine. The cold air is only around for a day as winds turn from the south and southwest for Sunday and warm us to the mid 60s.
The 70s make their first arrival on Monday as clouds will increase ahead of another approaching cold front. The front looks to arrive late Monday into Tuesday and bring with some isolated to scattered showers. The front looks to stall either on top of us or near us, which will be a catalyst for more showers the rest of the week. Highs will continue to climb despite cloud cover and rain chances so that by the latter portions of next week, we could be talking highs in the mid to upper 70s. While warm, and our warmest stretch of the year so far, we will not set any records. All of our record highs for the back part of next week are in the low 80s.
