Indiana, with a high of only 52 degrees.

Missouri and the Purchase area of West Kentucky. Temperatures at
3am, along and south of the warm front was in the lower to middle
40s, with upper 20s to middle 30s north of the warm front.
The center of low pressure will move through the Quad State region
and weaken into a trough of low pressure tonight. Another weather
system will dive down through the area late Monday night into
Tuesday. The weather system today will move through dry, with a
small chance for rain late Tuesday afternoon and evening over
parts of the region.

rise back into the 50s under southerly winds.
Dry and cooler conditions will linger into the first part of the
weekend, with highs in the 40s to near 50 degrees. The next best
