We are a broken record around here with another quiet day in store Wednesday. It has been over a month since Springfield has seen a good soaking, and we are in desperate need of some rain.
No rain with the next cold front, but we will see more cloud cover as the front drops south into the Ozarks Wednesday afternoon. Temperatures will have more of a late summer feel with afternoon highs in the low to mid-80s.
A second cold front will move through Thursday night, causing temperatures to plummet. Highs on Friday will be in the mid-60s while the overnight lows will likely dip low enough to see patchy frost across those frost-prone areas near Lake of the Ozarks Saturday morning. The cooler nights and mild days will help to usher in the fall foliage later this month.
Rain chances will perk up a little late in the weekend into early next week. More widespread rain chances will come with a pattern shift by the middle to end of next week.
