We woke up to clear skies Sunday morning and that’s exactly what we’re going to get the rest of the day. Temperatures make a pretty big leap as we go through Sunday. After starting out in the 30s, sunshine and south winds will help bring highs into the low 60s. KC’s average high is in the mid 50s right now, so Sunday will definitely have a nice feel.
Skies stay mostly clear overnight to give sightseers perfect conditions for viewing the Supermoon. Southerly flow during the night should keep lows from dropping into the 30s. The start to the work week will be mostly sunny and warmer with highs in the mid 60s.
We’ll continue to warm up through Thursday but a storm system will put a stop to that and end the evergoing oak mite problem across the ENTIRE area. Areas north of Kansas City have already seen a good freeze and 20s have been recorded in spots to the south. Highs Friday will barely get a chance to rebound during the morning as colder northerly flow drops temperatures during the rest of the day and through the weekend. Lows fall into the 30s Friday night but it’s looking like Kansas City could see their first temperature reading in the 20s by Saturday night.
Wednesday through Saturday will also be windy days with gusts up to 40 mph. Besides a slim chance for rain Friday, the late-week storm is expected to impact the northern plains and bring at least several inches of snow to portions of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota. Snowfall will impact travel in that part of the country late Thursday night through Friday night.
