The winter weather in Pettis County is expected to continue through Monday evening, which is paired with a flood warning through Tuesday morning.

The National Weather Service in Kansas City/Pleasant Hill has issued a winter weather advisory for snow, sleet and freezing rain, which is in effect until 9 p.m. Monday. A mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain are expected to continue through Monday evening.

The combination of ice and snow accumulations will make travel hazardous on untreated roadways, particularly during the evening commute. Motorists should be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities.

The W-K Shoot-out basketball games at State Fair Community College — Concordia and Lincoln boys and girls — at 7:30 and 9 p.m. Monday have been moved to Wednesday, Dec. 30 at 6 and 7:30 p.m. due to the weather.

NWS has also issued a flood warning for Pettis, Cooper, Saline, Randolph, Howard and Chariton counties until 11 a.m. Tuesday.

High water closed several roads across the warned area Monday due to the moderate and heavy rain which fell the past couple of days.

Motorists are urged to not drive their vehicles into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow a car to cross safely.
