KANSAS CITY, Mo. — November has greeted Kansas City with snowflakes.

KSHB 41 Weather meteorologist Wes Peery caught a few falling in Kansas City, Kansas, and in downtown Kansas City, Missouri.

With temperatures in the upper 30s, it’s cool enough for the snowflakes to form and fall.

Peery explained that until now, it’s been warm enough that any snowflakes would melt before reaching the ground.

Now, the temperature in the clouds where the snow is made is so cold and is creating so many big snowflakes that they don't have time to completely melt before reaching the ground, Peery said.

Kansas Citians who aren’t quite ready for snow and cold temps only have to wait until next week for temperatures to return to the 60s, according to forecasts.
