(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Officials are closing I-29 at Hwy. 71 north of St. Joseph once again due to flooding, the Missouri Department of Transportation confirmed Tuesday evening.

According to MoDOT, water is over the road on U.S. Route 59 in Mound City and has begun to go over I-29 near mile marker 85. 

Crews are working with the Missouri State Highway Patrol to reroute traffic.

All traffic going northbound is being diverted at the 56A exit on to Hwy. 71.

This is the same closure as earlier this spring.

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.
