(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Electric bills are going up for Kansas City Power & Light customers in northwest Missouri.

Customers will see their bills go up more than $2.50 after the utility received approval from the Missouri Public Service Commission to adjust the fuel adjustment charge.

The average residential customer using 1,000kWh a month would see their monthly FAC charge increase from approximately $2.40 a month to $4.92 a month on their electric bill.

The FAC covers fuel costs for the utility.

The power company said the increase would help cover higher fuel costs between June 2018 and November 2018.

The change takes effect March 1.

KCP&L serves more than 323,000 customers in Andrew, Atchison, Buchanan, Clinton, Daviess, DeKalb, Gentry, Grundy, Harrison, Holt, Livingston, Mercer, Nodaway, Platte and Worth counties.

Tomorrow we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will start to move away from the area on Saturday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s and watch for our next chance for rain on Sunday.
