Kansas City could set a record temperature on Thursday morning — and we are not talking about highs.

If temperatures fall overnight as expected, a new record low could be set for July 3.

The record is 55 degrees, set back in 1968. Temperatures are expected to fall to around 53 degrees overnight, according to the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill.

Temperatures are expected to be 10 to 15 degrees below overage Wednesday and Thursday.

Highs were expected to reach into the lower 70s on Wednesday and upper 70s on Thursday.

The July 4th holiday should be pleasant and dry for most of the area. Highs should be in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Late evening thunderstorms are possible in far northwest Missouri.
