Chiefs’ parade day forecast
Conditions are shaping up for a decent outlook leading into Wednesday in Kansas City for the Chief's Super Bowl celebration parade. It may not be as warm as game-day was for the game in Glendale, Arizona, but for mid-February temperatures are looking warmer than average.
If you are planning on making the haul back west for the celebratory parade, you'll want to keep in mind the drive time and the Noon parade start time. The drive west with light traffic from Columbia, Missouri to Union Station in Kansas City takes approximately 2.5 hrs. Traffic across the region is expected to increase meaning that it could take longer than this approximate time. Waking up Wednesday morning means you'll be welcoming temperatures into the mid to lower 40s with mostly clear skies.
The parade begins at the crossing of 6th St. and Grand Blvd. heading south on Grand Blvd. The parade is expected to wrap up at approximately 1:45 ending at Union Station where the celebration rally will be held. Keep in mind various surrounding routes will be closed in preparation for the parade.
The weather in Kansas City is looking cooler than the conditions expected at the same time back in Central Missouri due to a passing cold front.
If you are planning on returning back east to Central Missouri on Wednesday you'll want to get back on the roadway heading east by 6PM as a wintry mix is expected to make its way into the region lasting into early Thursday morning.
