The record to beat is 74 last set in 2011. Skies will be mostly sunny all day and the winds will kick in from the southwest at 10 to 15 MPH. After a cool morning in the middle 40s, there’s no reason to not expect an afternoon in the 70s in Kansas City and in many communities across the Storm Track 5 area. Temperatures at the lunch hour will be in the middle 60s. The high will be close to the record at 73.
Once again there is an elevated threat for grass fires.
An incredible weekend is in store! Highs will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Humidity values will increase and winds will decrease. This will lower our fire threat. We’ll see more clouds as we go deeper into the weekend. Rain showers still look likely on Monday with highs near 70. This system passes by rather quickly, setting the stage for more warm days in the lower 70s Tuesday and Wednesday.
Changes will come Thursday night and into Friday. A strong storm system will crash our temperatures. And, there is a chance for rain to switch to snow late in the day on Friday — something to watch as we get closer!
