Pettis County and the rest of the state will get a chance to dry out over the next few days, but hot, humid weather will be moving into the area.
According to Dave Clippert, director of the Sedalia-Pettis County Emergency Management Agency, hot temperatures and no rain is forecast for the area until later next week. Highs will be in the upper 80s and low 90s. Rain total for the week was 4.5 inches and the ground is completely saturated. A flood watch was canceled Thursday for Pettis and Johnson County.
The Smithton Town and County Fair will go on as scheduled this weekend and conclude Saturday. The tractor pull event has been postponed until July 24 due to the saturated ground at the fairgrounds.
