frost likely to soon form across northern Missouri where calm winds
and clear skies have allowed readings to fall into the middle 30s.

upper 50s to lower 60s. As surface high pressure slides south to the
northern Gulf, southerly winds will return with temperatures warming

slightly cooler temperatures expected on Monday as high pressure
influences our weather.
