A STRONG COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS THE QUAD STATE
REGION THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY MORNING.

BEHIND THIS COLD FRONT, NORTHWEST WINDS WILL USHER IN MUCH

AS WINDS SLOWLY DIMINISH AND SKIES CLEAR FRIDAY NIGHT, A SHARP

KENTUCKY THROUGH DAYBREAK. PATCHY FROST WILL BE POSSIBLE OVER
PARTS OF SOUTHERN ILLINOIS.

WITH HIGHS EXPECTED TO TOP OUT IN THE UPPER 40S DURING THE DAY

20S BY SUNDAY MORNING, TEMPERATURES SHOULD ONCE AGAIN FALL AT OR
BELOW THE FREEZING MARK AROUND 1 AM CDT SUNDAY. A WIDESPREAD FROST

GIVEN THE LIKELIHOOD OF THESE TEMPERATURES TO DAMAGE ANY REMAINING
TENDER VEGETATION LEFT OUTDOORS...A FREEZE WARNING WILL LIKELY BE
REQUIRED FOR ALL OR PART OF THE QUAD STATE REGION THIS WEEKEND.

NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO MAKE PLANS TO BRING IN OR PROTECT ANY
