Happy October!

Or, is it late August? It certainly feels like late summer with another round of highs near 90° Sunday. The summer feel will linger into the week, but big changes are on the way.

Another mild, quiet night is unfolding across the Ozarks with temperatures slipping into the low to mid-60s by morning.

Monday into Tuesday will feature summerish warmth and quiet weather. Look for an increase in clouds Tuesday as the pattern begins to shift.

Showers will be possible as early as late Tuesday night, but more likely Wednesday as a cold front begins to press into the area. Showers and thunderstorms are most likely Wednesday into Thursday as the cold front pushes through. At this stage, no severe weather is expected but there could be some locally heavy rainfall with many spots likely picking up half an inch or more.

Once the cold front clears the Ozarks, we can expect temperatures to slide. By the weekend, temperatures will be topping out in the 60s with morning lows threatening to dip into the upper 30s in some areas. It will be a great time to visit the local pumpkin patch or do any of those fall-time activities.

The fall feel will stick around through the weekend with a rebound the next week.
