.DISCUSSION...

An upper level disturbance will cross the region from the west 
overnight into Friday with very light precipitation possible in 
spots. High pressure will then build over the eastern part of the 
country and bring us fair weather with a warming trend as we head 
into the weekend. A low pressure system will then move out of the 
lower Mississippi valley late in the weekend resulting in a 
chance of showers for late Sunday into early next week.
