Tonight, overnight will expand the wet weather threat. That will then bleed into Saturday morning and early afternoon. Once we finally finish up with this low-end front combination, wind starts to take over the Kansas City area. Temperatures fall out to the upper 50s for daytime highs. Quickly, high pressure will take over. Sunday’s forecast will be mostly clear to partly cloudy, with daytime highs rebounding quickly to upper 60s and lower 70s. Still cool but more comfortable. Unfortunately, high-pressure doesn’t last long...

A new front and low-pressure system is building for the beginning of our workweek. By Monday late afternoon/early evening, it will be increasing our threat for showers and thunderstorms once again. The storms, which will build overnight into our Tuesday, is where we can see an opportunity for isolated severe storms.

A Weather Alert will be up for both Monday and Tuesday. Daytime highs will continue to rebound, but slowly. The first part of the workweek, we’ll still be dealing with mid-upper 60s. By the end of the workweek, we climb steadily into the upper 70s. Then, the lower 80s. By the weekend, middle and upper 80s will return.
