Rain and mild temperatures ahead this week
We begin with partly to mostly cloudy skies and areas of fog this Monday morning. Temperatures begin in the 50s in most areas, likely warming into the mid and upper 70s as winds pick up out of the south between 14 and 18 mph. Through the day, we'll see partly to mostly cloudy skies with isolated showers likely into the afternoon. We'll continue to see isolated showers overnight as temperatures drop into the lower 60s.
Expect slightly warmer temperatures into your Tuesday as well with partliy cloudy skies and isolated showers. Temperatures will reach into the upper 70s with some pushing 80 by the mid-afternoon. Clouds increase even more into Tuesday night with temperatures dipping only into the mid-60s.
By Wednesday, an area of heavy rainfall over Arkansas will shift into parts of North Mississippi. Still, the bulk of this heavy rainfall should be focused over our western areas. Only some of that rainfall will make it east of Highway 45. Rainfall totals should range from 0.50" across the southeast to 1.50" across the northwest.
Some of that rainfall continues into your Thursday with an additional one inch or so. Temperatures will still be mild, but perhaps a bit cooler. Highs will be in the upper 60s with 70s returning into Friday. From there, more isolated showers are likely into the weekend with highs in the 60s and 70s.
