The first frost is expected to hit the greater Springfield area Monday night.

Mark Burchfield, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service Springfield office, says to bring potted plants inside and prepare extra time in the morning-because you might need to scrape some frost from the windshield of your vehicle.

After Tuesday, he expects temperatures to climb back up a little.

"It's gonna be, you know, kinda seasonable. It's gonna be more fall-like than what we've had," Burchfield said.

Burchfield says the rest of the week will be in the 50s and 60s, until Friday when the next storm system rolls in, bringing with it more rain to the Ozarks.
