Break out the jackets. Fall is finally coming to the Kansas City.
A cold front began moving into northern Missouri early Tuesday, bringing the chance of a few showers, mainly across areas north of the Missouri River.
But it’s the cooler temperatures behind the cold front that will capture Kansas Citians’ attention as highs and lows are expected to be more seasonal, starting Wednesday and into the weekend.
Tuesday’s highs in the Kansas City area and along the Interstate 70 corridor should be in the mid-70s. Meanwhile, highs are expected to stay in the 60s for northwestern Missouri and in the lower 80s south of the Kansas City area.
Never miss a local story.
The low Tuesday night, however, is expect to drop into the upper 40s. Overnight lows for the remainder of the work week will remain in the mid- to upper 40s. Highs are likely to reach only into the 60s.
After any rain Tuesday, the next chance for precipitation could be this weekend, but there is uncertainty how much and the timing. There’s a possibility of some rain moving into eastern Kansas and western Missouri Friday night and Saturday.
For the weekend, highs will likely be in the upper 50s to middle 60s. Lows will be in the middle to upper 40s.
