First Alert update: A Fall Chill and frost potential for parts of the region Saturday morning.

A cold front will move through this evening and overnight. Expect a few more clouds with it and some breezy winds, with a low chance for a sprinkle or spot shower. This front will usher in some much cooler temperatures for Friday and the weekend.

Friday Game 1 for the Cardinals playoff race will be cool with temperatures near 60 at first pitch. It will be about 20 degree cooler Friday compared to Thursday. So have the sweatshirts and jackets handy, though mostly sunny skies will help if you’re in the sunshine.

Saturday Morning Frost Potential: Widespread frost is possible west and northwest of St. Louis Saturday morning. It’s a good idea to protect sensitive plants in those area. However, closer into the St. Louis metro temperatures will be border line for frost, which is typically 36° or colder. I can’t rule out some patchy frost in St. Louis, especially in valleys and on cars which get colder.

Saturday will be sunny and cool and then chilly for Game 2 in the evening with mid 50s at first pitch.

Above normal temperatures the first half of next week. Looks like a good chance for some widespread rain by Wednesday.
