October Chill and the Drought

While I'm focusing on the chilly weather for our 5 and 10 o'clock newscasts tonight, it's important to also point out the drought.  Across portions of southern and eastern Arkansas, it's classified as severe.  I don't see any rain for at least the next seven days, but there are a few signs of a system which may generate some precipitation by the middle of the month.

The next two nights should be quite chilly which is perfect to get those leaves changing colors.  The cool air will be replaced by warming conditions by the middle to end of the week with temperatures going well into the 80s.

Possible lows Monday morning
