The skies have become cloudy over the Clarksville area this morning as a cold front pushes through the region. This front has pushed through without much precipitation, but temperatures will reflect the passage of the front. High temperatures for today will be about ten degrees colder than yesterday as they will be near eighty. The skies will clear by tonight and this will allow low temperatures to drop into the upper fifties once again this summer. The temperatures will warm back up as the dome of high pressure over the southwest United States moves over Texas with highs in the middle eighties on Friday. Heading into the weekend, another front will try to push through the area and will cause isolated showers and thunderstorms to develop across the region. The thunderstorms that do develop could produce heavy rain, but will be a good reprieve from the heat as highs for the weekend will be in the middle nineties. Temperatures will drop behind this front for the beginning of the upcoming workweek as highs will be in the eighties under mostly sunny skies.
