KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Midwest is gearing up for its third major storm in a month, with up to a foot of snow expected barely a week after some cities saw record highs.

The storm system also could generate thunderstorms and tornadoes in parts of the South this weekend.

The National Weather Service says up to a foot of snow could start falling on northwest Kansas on Friday night, while Kansas City, Missouri, Indianapolis and Omaha, Nebraska could get up to 8 inches. Snow is expected to start in those cities late Saturday afternoon and continue through midday Sunday.

The system is expected to carry snow into the Northeast early next week.

In the South, forecasters say the system could spark tornadoes in Louisiana and Mississippi on Saturday.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Bacon lovers have their day in St. Louis.

Saturday is Baconfest, an all-day pork party featuring live music, beer, and lots of bacon.

John Johnson, the executive chef for Lumiere Place and River City casinos in St. Louis, made a 50-foot "hog log" for the event. That includes 100 pounds of bacon wrapped around 300 pounds of Italian sausage stuffed with another 100 pounds of bacon.

Revelers could purchase 10-ounce, 965-calorie slices of the log, with proceeds benefiting the USO.

JENNINGS, Mo. (AP) — A 24-year-old jail inmate in the St. Louis County town of Jennings is dead after police say he hanged himself in his cell.

Charles Chatman Junior of Jennings was found about 8:30 a.m. Friday. He was being held in jail pending posting of bail on traffic warrants.

Authorities say video surveillance shows Chatman hanging himself at 7:42 a.m., not long after he was moved to a one-man cell in the Jennings Correctional Center because he was agitated.

CHICAGO (AP) — Five small airports in Illinois are among dozens nationwide that will lose their air traffic control towers under budget cuts that have hit the Federal Aviation Administration.

The agency announced Friday that it will begin closing 149 air traffic facilities starting April 7.

The affected Illinois towers are at St. Louis Regional Airport in East Alton, Central Illinois Regional Airport at Bloomington-Normal, Decatur Airport, Southern Illinois Airport in Carbondale and Waukegan Regional Airport near Chicago.

All of the affected airports will remain open. Under long-established procedures, pilots will be left to coordinate takeoffs and landings among themselves over a shared radio frequency without help from controllers.

The FAA is being forced to trim $637 million for the rest of the fiscal year under the federal cuts known as sequestration.
