According to Corporal Rob Dudeck of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, officers responded to a two vehicle collision on highway 59 just outside the city limits of Atchison, Kansas around noon.

Dudeck said slick conditions on the roadway led one vehicle to strike another vehicle traveling in opposite directions along Highway 59.

Temperatures today were slightly above average with highs in the mid 80s. Most of today was dry and sunny, but a weak cold front will move through late this afternoon into this evening giving us the chance for a few isolated showers and storms. Conditions will stay comfortable this weekend with highs in the mid 80s on Saturday and upper 80s on Sunday. Temperatures will start off above average on Monday before a cold front moves through. That front will give us additional rain chances Monday night and some much more fall like temperatures through the rest of the week.
