High pressure and northwest flow aloft will result in spectacular,
fall-like weather to continue tonight into mid-week. Below normal
temperatures are expected with lows in the 50s and 60s and highs
mainly in the 70s. In fact, minimum readings tonight may approach
record low territory (KC record low 52; forecast low 54). Breezy
northerly winds this evening will relax around sunset, as will a
noted decrease in the cumulus field coverage.

Summer-like weather finally returns by the end of the work week as
high pressure slides off to the east, and moisture streams back into
the area. Specifically, highs will reach the 80s to lower 90s with
dewpoints back into the upper 60s to lower 70s. The upper pattern
flattens over the central CONUS and west/southwesterly flow aloft
brings in a parade of weak shortwave troughs to the region. Periodic
chances for showers and thunderstorms are expected Thursday night
into the weekend.
