Looking quiet through the forecast period
On the heels of a hot afternoon across the area, we will see fall return for the week ahead of us. One cold front will work through early Monday morning. While it could give us some early morning clouds and maybe a random shower or sprinkle in a few spots, it will cool us back into the lower 70s for Monday afternoon. After that front rolls through, the jet stream heads back to our north for Tuesday and Wednesday. That sends us back on a little warming trend through the middle of the week under mostly sunny skies. On Thursday, we’ll have another strong cold front roll through and send the jet stream back to our south. That will send highs into the lower to middle 60s as we work into the end of the week. Let’s keep an eye on Friday morning, though. We may have lows around 40° around the Joplin area. However, some upper 30s could be possible in some outlying areas that could also lead to a possible frost by Friday morning.
