Jacket weather continued today with afternoon highs only in the low 60s. The chilly fall feel will fade a bit this week after another cold night tonight. Lows will generally be in the upper 30s, but those typically colder locations will likely get cold enough for some patchy frost.
We gradually warm through Wednesday as temperatures climb a little above normal for mid-October. We’ll hit the upper 60s Tuesday and low to mid-70s on Wednesday. Skies during this time will be filled with sunshine, but look for an increase in clouds Wednesday afternoon ahead of the next cold front. That cold front will help generate breezy southwest winds Wednesday at 10 to 20 mph with gusts between 20 and 30 mph.
A weak cold front will pass through the Ozarks Wednesday night. We can expect a round of clouds and a few light showers, mainly east of Hwy. 65. Temperatures will drop only a couple of degrees Thursday in the upper 60s.
We’ll hover near 70 degrees to wrap up the week and into the weekend with a bright and mild weekend to follow.
