A cold front moved through earlier Friday bringing some truly fall-like air to the area. This air is straight from Canada, so get ready for below normal temperatures.
Tonight we'll have clear skies and light winds. Temperatures will fall very quickly with dry air in place. Lows will be in the middle to upper 40s, making for the coolest weather since mid-May!
I expect generally lots of sunshine and clear skies at night through the weekend and much of next week. Our high temperatures will be in the 70s through early next week. The average high is around 83. Lows will be in the 40s. The average low is in the upper 50s.
It appears a dry pattern has returned to our region. I don't see any significant chance of rain for the next week. The weather will be great for the start of the Mississippi State Fair on Wednesday.
