(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., set to survey the flood damage in Holt County Friday morning.

Widespread flooding in northwest Missouri prompted Governor Mike Parson to issue a state of emergency. 

Governor Parson, U.S. Rep. Sam Graves, R-Tarkio, state Department of Agriculture (MDA) Director Chris Chinn, Missouri National Guard Major General Stephen Danner and State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) Director Ron Walker took an aerial survey of the flooding impact Thursday in both Rock Port and St. Joseph.

Senator Josh Hawley will meet with local officials in Holt County and tour the flood damage with county commissioners along US-159 Friday morning.

Skies have started to cloud up late today after we saw sunshine for the first half of the day. Clouds will start to break apart again this afternoon with temperatures warming into the lower 50s. The majority of today will be dry, but there could be a few areas of light drizzle later this evening mainly to the south of the St. Joseph area. Temperatures will continue to warm on Saturday making a run for 60 under mostly sunny skies. A few clouds will move into the area Saturday evening as a cold front moves through. That cold front could bring us a few areas of light rain once again, but most areas will see less than a tenth of an inch of rain.. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday because of the cold front, but will quickly start to warm into the 50s by the beginning of next week.
