(KFVS) - The run of dry days looks to continue for this week.

For this evening we will see clear skies and light winds.

Temperatures will fall into the 50s during the late evening hours. Lows by morning will be in the lower 40s.

Tuesday will be sunny and pleasant. Highs will reach the middle to upper 70s.

We will remain dry through much of the work week. A cold front will bring a few clouds and maybe a sprinkle in our northern counties Thursday but the chance of rain looks to remain below 10 percent.

Temperatures will warm into the 80s by Thursday afternoon. Be hind the front the coldest air of the season will move into the Heartland with a frost likely this weekend.

The lack of significant rainfall and dry conditions is set to worsen the drought and increase the fire danger in the Heartland.

The Mississippi River at Cape Girardeau fell below 8 feet over the weekend and current forecasts have it falling below 7.5 feet by next week.
