Another day, another weather issue.
Everyday this week we have either been dealing with extreme cold, snow or freezing rain– and Thursday morning was no different.
Rain fell early, and then began to change to snow showers around 6 a.m. in northern Butler County, causing slick spots on the roadways.
The Moniteau School District decided to cancel school because of the weather.
The National Weather Service is expecting the snow to taper off throughout the afternoon after leaving behind about an inch. After that, expect cold air to return. Friday’s high is expected to be only 18 degrees, with a low of 6.
It was an icy go of it for some in Butler County on Wednesday as freezing rain fell throughout the morning. The rain turned the brick stretch of South Main Street in the city of Butler into a “sheet of ice” about 7:30 a.m., according to Butler City Police Chief Bob O’Neill.
Six vehicles ended up crashing, with four needed to be towed from the scene. One driver plowed through residents’ yards to avoid hitting parked cars. That car ended up rolling over.
No one was injured in the crashes.
