Freezing rain early Wednesday morning forced two local school districts to cancel classes.
The Moniteau and A-C Valley school districts closed their doors because of poor road conditions caused by freezing rain.
The air temperatures was well above freezing this morning- it was 40 degrees in the city of Butler at 6 a.m.- but the ground was still very cold, which caused the rain to freeze on contact.
Butler, Mercer and Lawrence counties were under a Winter Weather Advisory through 10 a.m.
Rain is expected off and on throughout the day, so watch for slick spots on the roads. The rain could turn to snow late tonight into early Thursday. The National Weather Service expects less than one inch of snow to fall.
