begin to build into the region. Overnight lows will range from the
upper 30s across the northwest portion of the CWA to mid 40s
across the southeast. Clouds will linger through early Friday.
Temperatures on Friday are expected to be much cooler with highs
in the 50s.

Dry conditions are anticipated through the weekend in response to
high pressure. Temperatures Saturday will warm back up into the
60s. A reinforcing cold front will move through the Mid-South
