(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)— Edison Elementary School is dismissing at noon Monday due to a power outage.

SJSD officials said in a release Monday morning that a tree fell on a power line near the school causing the building to lose power. 

School officials were notified by KCP&L that it could take four to five hours to restore power. 

The school made accommodations this morning to continue classes, provide breakfast and prepare lunches, but the temperature in the building will begin to drop by midday due to the outage.

After Monday's system moves away, we will see the return of sunshine and even warmer temperatures for Tuesday. Highs Tuesday will likely be in the lower 60s. The warm weather continues until the next chance for widespread rain that comes late Wednesday into Thursday morning as another cold front pushes through the area. We'll have cloudy skies by Thursday afternoon, but it will be much cooler with highs in the mid 40s.
