As Sunday rolls around the beautiful start to March will continue to stay in the forecast. Even under the mostly cloudy skies that we will see, temperatures will warm quite nicely into the mid 70s across the viewing area. The southerly winds will help bring in more moisture so tomorrow could be a muggy, but warm day.

Sunday night we'll start to see a system make it's way into the northern half of the state ahead of another front bringing us cold arctic air. As with the last system, it will not be as cold and will not stick around long. The front will have completely moved through the viewing area by Mid-Monday afternoon. Before that, rain will fall ahead of the front. The rain looks to start impacting the northern part of the viewing area by around 8 pm Sunday night and be completely out of the viewing area in our southern counties by around 10 am at the latest. Whereas the Delta and Northwest portions of Mississippi will see some freezing rain and sleet, it will just be too warm at the surface as well as above the surface for any form of wintry precipitation to fall.

As the front passes Monday temperature differences will take a drastic decrease, as we will be sitting about 30 degrees colder than we were Sunday. The cold air will quickly shift off to the east as we head into Tuesday and we'll warm up into the mid 50s and the trend will continue on into the weekend. By Saturday we should be back in the upper 60s. The only other chance of rain we will have will be Wednesday thru Friday as a low pressure system develops off the Coast of Texas. Rain chances are minimal for those days, as models aren't in agreement with how far north the rain will travel.
