This weekend's weather looks quite until late Sunday. Saturday will start cool, but sunshine will warm temperatures into the mid 60s by afternoon. Clouds will begin thickening Saturday night as a storm system to our west takes aim on the region. Showers and storms will break out across the Ark-La-Tex by Sunday morning and spread across Mississippi through the day. Areas west of I-65 will have the best chance of rain Sunday afternoon. By Sunday night, showers and storms will spread into the region. Some of the rain will be heavy at times as the cold front sags into the and stalls along the coast or just offshore.
The front will hang out in the region for Monday and Tuesday as waves of low pressure ride along it. The highest chance for heavy rain and potentially severe weather will be on Fat Tuesday, where some areas could see 2-4" of rainfall before it wraps up by Wednesday morning. The rest of the week looks dry and cooler with highs in the 60s and lows dropping back into the 30s by Valentine's Day morning.
