If you have a chance, sneak out of the office Tuesday afternoon — otherwise you’ll miss the warmest day of the week.
The highs Tuesday are expected to reach into the middle 50s in the Kansas City area.
Temperatures are then expected to tumble as a strong cold front sweeps through the region late Tuesday and Wednesday morning, returning the area to seasonably chilly weather, according to the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill.
Highs Wednesday are expected to reach only into the lower 40s and temperatures are expected to fall through the day.
Breezy north winds will make it feel like the teens and 20s, making the temperature swing feel more dramatic after Tuesday’s high, according to the National Weather Service.
Wind chills on Thursday morning will be at or below zero across much of the area. Far northern Missouri and northeast Kansas could see wind chills as cold as 10 degrees below zero.
Highs Thursday will reach only the mid- to upper 20s. There will be a slight roller coaster ride the rest of the week with highs climbing to the mid-40s on Friday and then only to near 30 on Saturday.
No precipitation, however, is expected for the rest of the week.
