With fall-like temperatures moving into the Kansas City region this weekend, people might be tempted to look at the calendar to make sure we are still in July.

Don’t — just enjoy the spectacular weather.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible through Friday afternoon, but for the most part, the opportunity for significant rain will miss the Kansas City area, according to the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, Mo.

Northern and parts of west-central Missouri and east-central Kansas will see the best chances for precipitation.

Friday’s highs are expected to be in the lower 80s.

After a cold front drops south through Missouri, much cooler and drier air will move into the area and linger through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Highs Saturday and Sundays are expected to be in the middle- to upper-70s.

Meanwhile, overnight lows will bottom out in the 50s this weekend, making for exceptional sleeping weather, according to the National Weather Service.

Thunderstorms will be possible late Sunday through Tuesday, with the best chance for storms and significant rainfall coming Monday.
