Dry & mild pattern continues for just a little while longer

An east-northeast wind at the surface and dry air aloft is combining to keep great weather pattern in place across the Mid-South. This pattern will continue for a short while longer before a southerly flow returns to bring a warmer and muggier air mass into the area.
