A much warmer day is forecast for today as southwesterly winds usher a warmer air mass into the region. A cold front moves through later this afternoon into tonight. Winds become northwest behind the front and much colder air returns to the region. In fact, highs on Tuesday will not get out of the 30s in many locations. Dry weather will be the rule for the week except for a few sprinkles or flurries that are possible late tonight mainly over southwest IN. Highs from Wednesday through Friday will generally be in the 40s, with low 50s possible in southeast MO on Wednesday.
