ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-After a warm Monday, a change is on the way for St. Louis. Another cold front sweeps through the region tonight bringing a fast hit of snow and a return to bitter cold temperatures.  The snow will begin late, after 10:00pm, and should end by 6:00am Tuesday morning.  Snowfall totals of one to two inches are likely along and east of the Mississippi River. Snowfall amounts decrease as you head west into Missouri.

Temperatures will fall sharply behind the cold front, dropping into the upper teens by early morning and continuing to fall until midday Tuesday.

Winds will be very strong overnight, out of the north at 20-25mph with higher gusts. The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for the St. Louis region from 9:00pm Monday to 6:00am Tuesday. Strong winds could create areas of blowing snow, causing low visibility, and could lead to single digit wind chills.  Winds should gradually die back on Tuesday morning.
