For Monday, high pressure maintains control and we should see partly sunny skies (high clouds will filter the sun somewhat) and temperatures rebounding into the mid 50s. As clouds thicken Monday night and the wind remains steady from the southeast, temps won't drop as far - only into the mid 40s.
The next rainmaker will move into the Southern Plains Tuesday, then eject to the northeast Tuesday night. Low pressure will be in eastern OK on Tuesday evening then quickly reach southern WI by Wednesday night. Meanwhile, Gulf moisture and some instability, along with lift provided by an approaching front, will bring widespread showers and some thunderstorms. Scattered showers should break out Tuesday afternoon with most of the inclement weather Tuesday night and early Wednesday. The front will pass through the Mid-South Wednesday morning.
