Kansas City Heat Forecast To Moderate This Week

Jul 22, 2013
Weather Or Not

There is relief forecast for metro residents who sweltered through the last work week.

  Normal temperatures this time of year in Kansas City range from 89 to 91 degrees. 

The trend departs from the season of 2012.

Records show there were 11 days of 100 degrees or higher up to July 22 of  last year. The highest at downtown airport was 107. Kansas City International was 106 degrees.

The moderation of the last full week of the month will give way in August to something like the first part  of July, according to some meteorologists.
