***It's Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Missouri & Kansas. A reminder that the Statewide Tornado Drill will be taking place at 10 a.m. Tuesday. The National Weather Service Office in Kansas City is also presenting a Storm Spotter Training Class tonight at 7 at the Missouri Theater in St. Joseph.
It was a very cold start to the workweek with lots of sunshine across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri on Monday. Dry weather and moderating temperatures are expected Tuesday into Wednesday as high pressure moves through the Central Plains, but we'll stay below normal.
Highs on Tuesday will be in the lower 20s under sunny skies. It will be a bit breezy as well with those NW winds at 10-15 mph, gusting up to 25. Highs return to the middle 30s on Wednesday with mostly sunny skies as high pressure moves east, allowing our winds to switch up to the SW.
The next chance for some light snow mixing in with some rain will come Wednesday night into Thursday as another disturbance moves through. A stronger storm system will likely move through the area late Friday night into Saturday bringing a better chance for widespread rain and some snow to the area. Highs Friday through the weekend will be back up into the 40s to near 50 degrees. We'll see mostly sunny skies by Sunday and Monday.
