WITH THE EXCEPTION OF LOCATIONS SOUTHEAST OF TUPELO, THE MID-  
SOUTH IS EXPERIENCING A GORGEOUS AFTERNOON WITH PLENTY OF  
SUNSHINE, PLEASANT TEMPERATURES, AND LOW HUMIDITY. PESKY CLOUDS  
REMAIN OVER LOCATIONS FROM SOUTHERN CALHOUN TO SOUTHERN ITAWAMBA  
COUNTIES. THE CLOUDS SHOULD CLEAR BY THE EARLY EVENING HOURS.

WILL BEGIN TO PUSH INTO NORTHEAST ARKANSAS. CHANCES FOR SHOWERS  
WILL OCCUR AFTER MIDNIGHT FOR PORTIONS OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND  
THE MISSOURI BOOTHEEL. THE SHOWERS MAY CONTINUE INTO EARLY MONDAY  
AFTERNOON BEFORE DISSIPATING.

WILL BRING CHANCES FOR SHOWERS MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY ACROSS  
THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE CWA. THE UPPER FLOW WILL BECOME MORE  
ZONAL BY TUESDAY EVENING ENDING THE CHANCES FOR SHOWERS.
