Kansas City lies in the storied "Tornado Alley," a region where cold air from the Rockies and Canada crashes into warm air off the Gulf of Mexico resulting in fierce winds and tornadoes. Though the risk is present year-round, tornados more frequently occur during spring and summer months. Late summer and fall are the seasons to visit Kansas City, as visitors can enjoy the warm days and mild evenings of summer into the cooler, pleasant temperatures of fall.
