Urgent - Winter weather message from the National Weather Service, St. Louis
402 pm cdt sat Mar 28 2009
Early spring storm will bring snow and sleet to region tonight.
An intense area of low pressure will move northeast across southern Missouri
and Illinois tonight. A band of heavy, wet snow mixed with sleet may bring
more than 6 inches of snow to parts of northeast Missouri this afternoon
and this evening.
Farther south and east, the rain will gradually change to snow late this 
afternoon and this evening. Total snow accumulation across the advisory 
area is expected to be 2 to 5 inches, with locally higher amounts possible.
Sleet and snow will mix with rain before changing over to all snow this 
evening. Freezing rain is also possible this evening. Total sleet and 
snowfall of 2 to 5 inches, with locally higher amounts, is possible 
before the snow ends late tonight. The combination of a strong and gusty 
north wind and large, wet snowflakes will reduce the visibility below one 
mile at times tonight.
A winter weather advisory means that up to 5 inches of snow is expected 
across the advisory area. Roads may rapidly become slippery once the snow 
begins, so motorists should plan for a slower-than-normal trip. Be 
especially alert when approaching bridges, overpasses and curves.

This CH-47 Chinook copter crew holds an American flag that was carried on a combat mission in Afghanistan. The crew has sent the flag to the Lincoln Knights of Columbus to say thank you for the care packages the Knights have been sending overseas. Lincoln soldier Kyle Gleason is at the far left.
