Sunny, with a high near 69.

A cold front currently will push south tonight and make it to roughly the MO-AR line.  Lows will drop well into the 30s for central
Missouri, near 40 for southern Missouri, and mid 40s for Arkansas.

Friday will be sunny, with a high near 73 and a low around 51.

This front will move back north some on Friday as low pressure pushes toward the Ozarks from Kansas

A large range of temperatures is expected with some areas having a high close to 60 while others could hit 80.

As the area of low pressure moves in, Saturday well be mild but end up cool.  There will be a
