(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) Kansas City mayor Quinton Lucas said the stay-at-home order will likely be extended into May. 

The original order was put in place on March 24 and was to last 30 days. 

Lucas said there is no timeline set yet, but said there are many questions that need to be answered before he reopens the city. 

"Are we at the point where we are having fewer community infections? Are we at the point where we feel like our hospitals can handle not just what's coming in now but a surge?" Lucas said.

The forecast for tomorrow will be very similar to yesterday: cooler, hazy, and sunny. The hazy sky is a result of the wild fires out to the west of us. Tonight should be cool as well with lows in the lower 60s and calm winds. Dry and sunny conditions continue into next week as temperatures stay seasonal. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and the humidity will be moderate, feeling a lot more comfortable than last week.
