Cooler air has moved in to northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas as we are waking up to temperatures in the middle 30s this morning. High temperatures today will be struggling to make it up to 40 degrees. The strong winds will continue today as well gusting from the northwest from 40-45 miles per hour. A Wind Advisory is in effect from 9 am to 6 pm. We'll be in a high fire danger due to the dry and windy conditions so please refrain from outdoor burning. We could also see a slight chance of a rain/snow mix on Tuesday from the back edge of our storm system as it moves east from us, it will still be a cloudy day overall.
This week is also Severe Weather Awareness Week across both Missouri and Kansas. The statewide Tornado Drill will be taking place Tuesday at 10 am. Just a reminder that spring and severe weather season is just around the corner and that now is the time to prepare & have a plan in place.
The seond half of the workweek is looking pretty good with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will remain below normal for Wednesday and Thursday before temperatures start warming back up to the upper 50s to lower 60s by Friday and the weekend. We could see another round of rain for Saturday. Don't forget to "Spring Forward" early Sunday morning. Sunday and early next week so far remains quiet and seasonable with temperatures in the lower 50s.
