Overall, for late January this will be a decent Kansas City weekend but it’s certainly not perfect.
Latest trends on storminess in the Southwestern U.S. show an area of low pressure developing in north Texas to Oklahoma during the day and moving east but with a track that’s a bit further north. Just a couple days ago, model data strongly favored a track far enough south for us to enjoy a completely dry weekend. Well that has changed.
Saturday morning may start with patches of dense fog and some mist. Eventually skies become mostly to partly sunny late morning to early afternoon before rapidly turning mostly cloudy again later in the afternoon. Temperatures will get a quick boost into the mid 50s with some breaks of sun.
The evening now looks fairly cloudy with sprinkles and rain showers developing especially from the Kansas City metro and points south. Patches of rain are likely Saturday night into Sunday morning then quickly drying Sunday afternoon. Skies on Sunday may stay mostly cloudy however with a northwest breeze keeping temperatures only in the lower to mid 40s.
