It looks like it’s shaping up to be a cool, comfortable Memorial Day weekend in the Kansas City area.

Thunderstorms are expected to return Friday night, and there’s a chance for scattered storms this weekend, especially Saturday night into Sunday morning, according the Multimedia Weather Briefing by National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, Mo.

But highs will be cool and gradually warm into the weekend.

Today’s highs will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s. It will be around 70 degrees across the Kansas City metropolitan area. Average highs are typically in the middle to upper 70s this time of year, according to the weather service.

Temperatures are expected to become gradually warmer into the weekend with highs in the upper 60s to mid to upper 70s on Friday and Saturday and 70s to 80s on Sunday.

Highs on Memorial Day are expected to be near 79 degrees.

Although severe weather isn’t expected, a few stronger storms can’t be ruled out, especially during the evening and overnight hours. Especially when you take into consideration it’s May, according to the National Weather Service.
