It looks as if the area is in for some more wet, slippery and cold conditions for a few days.
The National Weather Service has posted a winter weather advisory for the metro area from noon today through, so far, noon Wednesday. Much of northern Missouri, southeast Iowa, northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin are under similar advisories.
The Weather Service said light freezing rain was possible overnight Monday in the Kansas City area, and more freezing rain and drizzle is likely today. Ice of up to one-tenth of an inch could accumulate today.
Similar conditions are possible Wednesday and Thursday.

There’s also high water in parts of Missouri. Late Monday the Platte River was at 23.6 at Agency, where the flood stage is 20 feet.
Also, snow has been melting so fast in north-central Missouri – Chariton, Randolph, Adair, Linn, Sullivan and Macon counties – that flooding has closed some roads. A flood warning is up through 10:45 this morning.
