JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - We’re helping you plan your day on Good Morning Region 8.

Weather Headlines

After a windy and somewhat wet day on Monday, we’re treated to sunshine and no wind today.

High clouds move in by sunset giving some a little bit of a cloudy end to the day. Clouds only increase overnight with a few showers.

Low rain chances linger over the next few days, but the bulk of the rain looks to come Thursday night into Friday. Wind picks back up Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

It shouldn’t be as strong as it was yesterday until the cold front arrives Friday. Highs remain in the 80s ahead of the front dropping into the 60s behind the front.

We’ll wake up in the upper 40s over the weekend. As Ryan would call it, flannel weather. I’ll wait for a frost before I break out the flannel, though.

Meteorologist Zach Holder has your morning drive forecast coming up on Good Morning Region 8.
