Happy hump day! It’s been another beautiful fall afternoon in the Ozarks. Highs moved into the mid 70s this afternoon, with some spots a little cooler in the upper 60s. High pressure to our north continues to keep us quiet over the next few days.

Tonight, we’ll see some cooler readings again with lower to middle 40s over much of the area. It is possible that we see some 30s in some of the valleys, and even a very isolated occurrence of frost.

Lows will be in the lower to middle 40s, but some areas will drop into the 30s.

Starting Friday, a gradual warming trend is in store. We’ll likely see some range in temperatures from west to east for several days, and I expect Springfield to reach 80° or so by the weekend. There still is no signal for significant rain in the next 7.
