National Weather Service in Kansas City

Are you planning to treat your mom this Mother’s Day in Kansas City? It’s better to make plans for outdoor activities early in the day as storms and heavy rain are expected to return, according to the National Weather Service.

But before the next rounds of storms, the Kansas City region will get a break from the severe weather as pleasant spring conditions will prevail across the region through the first part of the weekend, according to the weather service.

The weather will be mainly sunny on Thursday, with light to moderate winds expected, although gusts of up to 37 km/h are possible at times. Temperatures will be in the low 70s. The average temperature in Kansas City for this time of year is 73 degrees.
