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

Weather Headlines

Cool mornings and comfortable afternoons will continue for most of this week. Highs stay in the 70s while overnight temperatures dip into the 40s and 50s.

We’ll see a few rounds of clouds over the next few days after a sunny Monday. Breezy southerly winds push temperatures into the mid to upper 70s ahead of our next cold front.

This front may bring a few sprinkles or a light shower as it passes through Wednesday night.

A few more showers are possible heading into the weekend, but nothing looks like a washout at this point.
