Dry and sunny weekend in store

High pressure is setting up across the Mid-South, that will bring us a dry and sunny weekend across the region.

Dry air has moved in across the south as high pressure firmly takes a grip over the region. This will allow for mostly sunny conditions today with afternoon highs only in the upper 50s with north winds around 5 to 10 mph. Tonight winds will calm, and skies stay clear. We will see lows dip into the middle to upper 30s. Sunday is looking much the same as today, with afternoon highs in the lower 60s under sunny skies and southwest winds becoming northwest during the day around 5 to 10 mph. Lows Sunday night will fall into the lower 40s with mainly clear skies.

TODAY: Mostly sunny. Winds: North at 5 to 10 mph. High: 58.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Winds: Calm. Low: 37.
