Good Wednesday bloggers,

We have broken two record high, low temperatures Monday and Tuesday. The lows were 81° and the records were 79°. The temperature dropped to 79 between 330 AM and 4 AM this morning. So, it was above 80° from 11 AM Sunday to around 330 AM today, 64-65 hours! The last time KC stayed above 80° for two consecutive days was July 14-15, 1980, 42 years ago. 1980 was a very hot and dry summer. 2022 will be different with ups and downs.

At the same time, hard to believe, but we are not having an official heat wave. It takes three straight days with highs of 95° or higher. Monday was 97°. Tuesday was 93°.


We may have an official heat wave that starts this weekend and ends next week. Between now and then we are tracking a cold front. Take the word "cold" with a grain of salt.

Last night as the Super Moon was rising there were areas of low clouds that blocked the moon at its biggest appearance on the southeast horizon. The moon rose at 9:35 p.m. I was able to capture this at 9:58 p.m. from our Power and Light Skyview. It would have been much bigger just 10 minutes earlier.


Details on the cold front, any thunderstorms, and possible heat wave are in the five minute video below.

Have a great rest of your week.
Stay cool, hydrated and healthy
