90° Watch

Good Monday,

We may very likely reach 90° today ahead of a back door cold front.  It has been 257 days since we officially reached 90° in KC.  The average first 90° high is May 27th, so we are just a bit late.  If we miss today, there will be a chance by the weekend.




The hottest day so far was back on May 15th when we reached 88°.



MONDAY MORNING: It was already 85° at 11 am, so I think we will reach 90°.  There is a cold front approaching from the northeast (back door) and you can see some refreshing Great Lakes air behind it from Madison to Chicago.  We will not get the full affect of the  Great Lakes air, but it will be noticeably cooler Tuesday and Wednesday.



TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT: The cold front will be on our doorstep with hardly a cloud.  Downtown KC may be near 80° right ahead of the front.



TUESDAY MORNING: The winds will be from the east to northeast at 5-15 mph bringing in the cooler air.  Lows will be in the 60s and it will feel refreshing.



TUESDAY AFTERNOON: It will be a spectacular day with highs in the mid to upper 70s along with abundant sunshine and lower humidity.  Rain and thunderstorms in the high plains will track south into western Kansas by Wednesday, not coming close to our region.



WEDNESDAY: This will be another great day with highs in the 70s after lows in the 50s!  Sunshine will be in abundance once again.



We do not see much rain the next seven days, so if your yard or farm did not get a nice downpour over the weekend, it might be time to irrigate.

Have a great week.
