The forecast for the week ahead holds some of the same. In fact, with yesterday's cold frontal passage, we are now moving into a period where an upper level trough will have an effect on our weather pattern, meaning cooler temperatures, less humidity, but still some rain chances, mainly this weekend. This morning, a round of showers and thunderstorms is moving east through southern AR, throwing clouds over our area, as well as the possibility of some light showers, though most rain will remain to the south of the metro.
