But first we have to get through Friday.
Temperatures are expected to climb into the 60s Thursday. And there will be plenty of sunshine, according to the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, Mo.
Highs in downtown Kansas City are expected to reach the mid-60s, making it good day to get outside.
Clouds will gradually return Thursday night, bringing the possibility of scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms after midnight, according to the National Weather Service.
Although widespread heavy rain is not expected, most people will see a little bit of rain Friday. Highs will only reach the 50s.
Showers and thunderstorms are possible through Friday night, but severe weather is not expected.
Rainfall totals are expected to be between a tenth to a quarter of an inch, although some areas could see higher amounts, according to the National Weather Service.
But once the rain leaves, get ready for a nearly perfect weekend.
Saturday will be partly cloudy with highs in the 60s. Sunday will be sunny and in the 70s.
And it will reach near 80 degrees on Monday.
