Perspective on Moving to Kansas City Missouri
1. The best months to move to Kansas City are September through October. Leave Canada late summer for a move in then.
Moving in November through March can be problematic because of winter conditions, snow and ice storms occurring from December through April. March to June sees warm humid air coming up from the Gulf to meet colder air from the north. Frequent storms result. They have contributed to serious flooding and frequent tornadoes. As part of Tornado Alley, there are 2 or 3 dozen tornadoes annually. In 2019 there were 12 consecutive days with at least 8 tornadoes reported.
Summer temperatures exceed 100 °F (i.e. 38 °C) a few days each year, 90 °F (32 °C) on almost 50 days each year. At the same time, moisture from the Gulf of Mexico drives up the humidity levels making life difficult July through August..
2. Kansas City is located about 8 hours drive time from Chicago. There are no mountains your shipment will need to pass over. It is a long flat road all the way to the middle of America and a dependable delivery on move in day.
