Very dry air makes for a not so typical weather pattern for this time of year

High pressure over the ArkLaTex is driving dry air from the Northern Plains into the middle and lower Mississippi River Valley. This is allowing the Mid-South to enjoy a nice break from the typically excessive June humidity and the pattern is expected to continue for the next several day.
