(BUCHANAN COUNTY, Mo.) U.S. Hwy. 59 has closed again into Atchison, Kansas due to flooding.

The road is closed at Hwy. 45 on the Missouri side. The Buchanan County Sheriff's Office says there is water over the roadway.

The Amelia Earhart Bridge is open to local traffic only.

Due to recent rainfall, the Missouri River has been steadily rising leading to flooding in the area.

The road had been open for less than month after March's historic flooding.

.Friday we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will start to move away from the area on Friday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s and watch for our next chance for rain on Sunday.
