Daily brief (11/23): Top picks from the Springfield media

A cold front plowed through the region last night and temperatures are dropping this morning.

Sunny, with a high near 48. Wind chill values as low as 32 early. Skies have cleared, and should remain that way much of the day.

High pressure will move in tonight with lows in the 20s.

Saturday will be similar to today with a high near 50. The wind will be very light.

The wind returns on Sunday so highs will push back to around 60.

More rain is possible by Sunday night and Monday.

Today’s picks
