High pressure will continue to provide a dry and sunny forecast to wrap up the weekend and start the new work and school week ahead.

Sunny skies have filled the Mid-South with temperatures climbing into the lower to middle 60s area wide. A weak cold front is pushing across the region, that will shift our winds tonight and bring slightly cooler temperatures for Monday. This evening and into tonight, winds will shift out of the northeast around 5. Light winds and mostly clear skies tonight will help us dip into the 30s and 40s overnight tonight.
