DISCUSSION...

Skies are mostly cloudy east of the Mississippi River with mostly
clear skies west of the river. All of the showers and thunderstorms
that were in the forecast area last night have moved out of the
region.

High pressure will continue to build into the central U.S. today
bringing dry weather and near normal temperatures with highs in
the low to mid 70s. Tonight the surface will move across southern
Arkansas and into south Alabama by Saturday morning. As a result,
dry weather will continue across the region. Temperatures will be
a little cooler than normal with lows Saturday morning in the mid
40s to lower 50s.

On Saturday, a cold front will start to approach the region from
the northwest. Showers are expected to develop ahead of the front
and possibly move into northern sections of the forecast area
during the afternoon hours. Temperatures will be a little warmer
than today with highs in the mid 70s. The cold front will move
into the forecast area Saturday night with some showers and
thunderstorms expected across the region. Temperatures will be
milder than tonight with lows Sunday morning in the 50s. The cold
front will move through north Mississippi on Sunday morning with a
few thunderstorms possible south of the front. Temperatures will
turn cooler behind the cold front with highs on Sunday in the mid
60s to mid 70s.

Monday will be a dry day as high pressure briefly builds into the
region. A new frontal boundary will approach the region on Tuesday
but should remain north of the forecast area through Thursday. The
front will be close enough for thunderstorms to develop ahead of
the front and move into the region from Tuesday through Thursday.
Temperatures should be above normal for Monday through Thursday.
