(KPLR) -Abnormally cold air is making its way across Missouri for Monday afternoon. Temperatures will chill into the upper 30s by evening rush hour. A few wet flakes may mix with the occasional light rain drifting across the area. This last surge of moisture will be followed by clearing skies during the late evening. With clear skies overnight, temperatures will dib to near record levels (Record Low 27 in 1928). This has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Freeze Warning for tonight. You should cover or bring inside any delicate vegetation in order for it to survive the late season cold air.
A bonus to clears sky Monday night will be the start of a lunar eclipse that will last till early Tuesday morning.
