KSDK - Our unforgiving winter is going to give us another opportunity to be patient, kind and to shovel snow.

After a strong southern storm brushes southern Missouri and Southern Illinois with a dusting of snow tonight, we'll see a little sun and a slight warm-up Monday with highs getting to near 30.

But that changes dramatically Tuesday.

Day two of the workweek will start with just clouds, leaving our morning commute uneventful, but by midday areas southwest of St. Louis should be starting to see a wintry mix and areas west snow. During the afternoon, through the evening rush and into the first few hours of Wednesday snow for most of us, a mix for areas well south, will push across the region leaving behind another, quite measurable, dose of winter.

As it stands now, most of us would end up with 3-6" of snow by early Wednesday morning, areas north near Bowling Green, Mo. may see more than 6" and areas south 1-3" of sleet, freezing rain and snow.

While this is less than thrilling for most of us, it's quite likely someone out there enjoys these storms. For them, good news, another winter storm may well visit next weekend.

Forgive the rest of us if we're not thrilled.
