DISCUSSION...

Skies are cloudy across much of the Mid-South this afternoon with
temperatures ranging from the mid 40s to the lower 60s. Some areas
of light rain have popped up across the Mid-South this afternoon.
The rain is due to an upper level low over eastern Oklahoma.

This upper level low will move southeast and weaken through
tonight. As it does, the rain over the Mid-South will exit the
region with dry weather returning by early this evening.
Temperatures will be on the chilly side tonight with lows Saturday
morning in the 30s.

High pressure will take over the weather pattern across the region
for the weekend with dry weather and seasonal temperatures
expected both Saturday and Sunday. Dry weather will continue
into Monday and Tuesday with temperatures warming into the mid to
upper 60s during the afternoon hours.

A cold front will begin to approach the region on Wednesday with
rain possibly moving into extreme northwest sections of the Mid-
South while the remainder of the region remains dry. As the front
inches closer to the region Thursday and next Friday, the chance
for rain will also slowly increase. Temperatures will remain above
normal for Thursday and next Friday with many areas seeing highs
at or above 70 degrees both days.
