.DISCUSSION...

Skies are cloudy over eastern and southern sections of the Mid-
South with mostly clear skies over the remainder of the region.
Temperatures early this morning range from the mid 60s to mid 70s.
The cold front that went through the Mid-South on Monday is now
across southern Mississippi. The showers and thunderstorms which
were over north Mississippi Monday night have exited the region as
well.

High pressure will be centered over the central Plains today. This
will help bring cooler and drier air into the region. Temperatures
will be about 5 degrees cooler than on Monday with highs in the
low to mid 80s. With high pressure remaining in control, skies
should be clear tonight. This will allow temperatures to become
unseasonably cool for late July. Lows Wednesday morning will be in
the upper 50s to mid 60s. Some locations in eastern sections of
the Mid-South may see near record lows for July 24.

The high will slowly shift to the east during the remainder of the
week. Dry weather will continue through Saturday. Temperatures
will be a little warmer than today but will remain below normal
for Wednesday through Saturday.

By Sunday, the weather pattern will begin to become more typical
for this time of year as a few afternoon thunderstorms will be
possible as temperatures get close to normal levels. Scattered
afternoon thunderstorms are possible for Monday as well.
