May 10: What you need to know
JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - We’re helping you plan your day on Good Morning Region 8.
Our small streak of dry weather grows a little bit larger this week. Rain isn’t expected until high pressure moves out later this week.
Until then, we get a little warmer and a little more humid each day. Highs today start to hit the low 90s with 90s continuing Wednesday and Thursday.
We’ll be within a degree or two of record highs. A very wet ground may keep us from tying or breaking those records. High pressure starts to move away from us as we head into the weekend dropping temperatures a bit.
A front this weekend may increase rain chances for us. A few pop-up showers and storms are possible before then as high pressure starts to break down.
Stay cool this week! Our bodies aren’t adjusted to the 90s and humidity just yet.
