Friday, October 18 Forecast Discussion

High pressure is situated just to our north along the Mississippi / Alabama / Tennessee border. This is causing dry air to slowly pump into the area, but our winds above the surface are from the southwest, bringing the clouds you see outside this afternoon and also bringing a little bit of moisture back as well. A cold front is approaching from Arkansas and Missouri along with a moisture surge from the Gulf of Mexico. These two will combine to bring a shower or two to the are overnight into Saturday morning. The cold front will exit by about 10am with all rain gone by noon and skies clearing quickly behind the front.

Sunday will have a cool start in finish with us waking up near 40 degrees and only again rebounding to the lower to middle 70s. Sunday looks to be the warmest day of the next seven in fact.

Clouds return on Monday with a system approaching from the west. These clouds will keep temperatures down. Not much rain is expected with our next front, but a few isolated showers are possible late Monday into Tuesday. The front will exit late Tuesday which will clear out the skies and drop off our temperatures.

Wednesday looks to be one of the coldest days so far this season with a high only in the mid to upper 60s. We stay in the 60s for Thursday and could start Thursday morning in the upper 30s for a few locations. Temperatures will climb a bit as we head into our Friday.
