First of all, it is going to be cold tonight around southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, western Kentucky, northwest Tennessee, southern Indiana, and northeast Arkansas. Frost Advisories and even Freeze Warnings are in place overnight for parts of the area.
Here are my forecast lows for tonight. Note: The 31 for Cape Girardeau is for the airport south of town. In town, temperatures will probably drop off to around 34 or 35 degrees.
Lets look back at the record low high temperatures for the last couple of days. Previous record listed on the left and this year's temperature listed on the right.
