There is a Winter Weather Advisory out for all counties south of Highway 36.

Like Saturday night, snowfall amounts that will be less than two inches, but enough snow to impact area roads.  

A half inch to almost two inches is expected across the region, including an inch of new snow in the metro area. 

Once this chance of snow moves out of the area Monday morning, dangerous wind chills will move into the metro.  A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for the entire KCTV5 viewing area from 6 p.m. Monday until Noon Tuesday. 

Some areas could see wind chills hit 20 below zero. 

That is dangerous and could cause frostbite in less than 30 minutes and also posses the threat of hypothermia if you are caught outside for long periods of time. 

Bottom-line: Be careful driving overnight and Monday morning and try to stay indoors as much as possible Monday night and Tuesday morning.
