Cold weather to prevail in Kansas City; light snow likely

Keep those hats and gloves handy — cold weather is settling in for the rest of the week in Kansas City.

For the next five days beginning Tuesday, highs will likely remain in 30s. It’s not until Sunday that temperatures could break 40, according to the National Weather Service.

Light snow is likely to fall Wednesday night through early Thursday morning, but only minor accumulations are expected across eastern Kansas and western Missouri.

Any lingering precipitation could change to rain or a wintry mix later Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

A second storm system is expected to develop Friday, but the majority of the precipitation from this system is expected to fall south of the Kansas City area.

A wintry mix of rain and snow is possible south of Interstate 70 Friday.
