   Residents in the St. Louis area are bracing for the next round of winter weather.  Snow, cold and wind... the next winter storm will have a little bit of everything.
   Overnight, widely scattered snow showers are expected to spread across the metro area ahead of a blast of arctic air.  Up to an inch or two of accumulation is possible by Tuesday morning, especially along and east of the Mississippi River.  Farther south and west could see just a dusting.  
   Then temperatures will nose-dive, dropping into the mid-teens by 6:00 a.m. with wind chills around zero.  That's because of strong winds from the northwest.
   A Wind Advisory is in effect until 6:00 a.m.  Sustained winds of 20 TO 30 mph are expected during the early morning hours, with gusts up to 45 mph.  The strong winds could make driving difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles and in areas were there's snow falling.
  By 1 a.m., transportation officials were reporting roads in northeastern Missouri as snow-covered, including portions of Interstate 70 through Warren and Montgomery Counties.  Most roads in St. Charles and St. Louis Counties were reported to be partially snow covered.  Current road conditions can be found on MoDOT's traveler website
   Illinois officials report roads and highways in central and northern Illinois are snow covered.  Current conditions can be found on IDOT's winter road conditions website

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is asking the Legislature for $10 million to renovate a hospital for classes at Lincoln University.
 
Nixon says the project will allow the state capital's historically black college to expand its nursing and culinary programs.
 
The proposed funds would let the state acquire and renovate St. Mary's Hospital in Jefferson City. The hospital is moving to a new site at the end of this year.
 
The governor has previously said he would recommend a $36 million increase for all of Missouri's public universities and colleges for the fiscal year beginning in July. He has also urged the four-year institutions, including Lincoln, to freeze undergraduate tuition for the next academic year.
 
Nixon will present his entire budget plan Tuesday before his State of the State address.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Hundreds gather in St. Louis to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s fight for equality, even as disparities still exist.
 
King's life was celebrated Monday at the Old Courthouse in downtown St. Louis, the same building where slaves waged a legal battle for freedom more than 160 years ago.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that speakers cited progress, but said disparities in education, jobs and poverty based on race still remain.
 
The crowd in the rotunda at the historic building was among the largest in several years, spilling out onto Market Street. After hearing speeches, the crowd marched through downtown to an interfaith service at Powell Hall.

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois high school student and his parents will get $910,000 under a jury award related to injuries the teenager sustained in a bicycle accident.
The (Alton) Telegraph reports that Edwardsville High School student Trevor Brady says he plans to use some of the money for college tuition. He'll receive the money under a jury verdict last week in Madison County.
The trial involved Brady's lawsuit against Plocher Construction Co., which was building a new office building in Alton and admitted it misplaced a steel beam that Brady hit while bicycling to middle school in March 2010.
The accident left Brady with facial injuries and missing teeth.
Brady's lawyer argued for $3.3 million, while an attorney for Plocher suggested $250,000. Plocher's attorney declined to publicly discuss the verdict.

OVERLAND, Mo. (AP) - The new chief executive of Build-A-Bear Workshop Inc. sees a comeback in the near future for the Missouri-based company.
The company, which allows customers to customize and "build" stuffed animals, has seen its sales decline since in 2007, with only one profitable year in the last four years.
Sharon Price John, who became chief executive officer of the Overland-based company six months ago, says she is optimistic that changes initiated recently will help the company turn around.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports John made her case to investors in a meeting last week at a conference in Florida.
She says the company declined in part because it did not respond to economic changes. Among other moves, the company is closing 60 underperforming stores and is updating its marketing.
