Low pressure from our west will bring cooler, fall temperatures into 5COUNTRY for the later part of the week. A shift in the jet stream will bring an influx of moisture into Arkansas and Oklahoma. This increased moisture will aid in raising rain chances midweek. Cold air and showers will keep temperatures cool for the end of the week.
