Tonight there will be occasional showers and thunderstorms, and a low around 45 degrees.

Interstate 70 eastbound lanes were closed because of an accident at around 11 a.m. The freeway was reopened about an hour later. Traffic will move slowly for some time because of congestion built up during the closure, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation.
