ST. LOUIS (AP) — Forecasters are urging Missourians to brace for a wicked round of winter weather that's about to hit.

The National Weather Service said Friday that a winter storm could dump nearly a foot of snow on the St. Louis region over the weekend, with significant but lesser amounts elsewhere.

Bitter cold is coming, too, with readings well below zero Sunday night and Monday night. Wind chills could reach as low as minus-35 degrees.

The weather service said Saturday is expected to start off mild, with temperatures in the 40s. Then a nasty cold front arrives. Rain will turn into snow starting Saturday and it will continue into Sunday. Several inches are also possible in southern Missouri, and about 5 inches is projected in mid-Missouri.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Missouri appeals court has ruled that the Archdiocese of St. Louis will not have to immediately turn over name of priests accused of sexual abuse in the past 20 years.
 
   A St. Louis judge had given the archdiocese a Friday deadline to turn over the names to a woman who sued, alleging that she was molested by a priest when she was a child, and to the woman's attorney. Otherwise, the names were to be kept under seal.
 
   The Eastern District of the Missouri Court of Appeals ruling on Friday did not say if turning over the names would eventually be required, or set a new deadline.
 
   Messages seeking comment from the archdiocese were not returned. The woman's attorney, Kenneth M. Chackes, called the ruling disappointing

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon plans to deliver his annual State of the State address on Jan. 21.
The governor outlines his legislative priorities during the speech and also releases his state budget proposal. Nixon plans to make his remarks at 7 p.m. to a joint session of the House and Senate.
The Democratic governor already has outlined some of his priorities for the 2014 session. Those include more funding for public school districts and higher education, an expansion of the state Medicaid health care program to cover more lower-income adults and an overhaul of the state's tax credit programs.
Republican legislative leaders have said a Medicaid expansion is unlikely. They also have disagreed with Nixon's administration on the amount of money expected to be available for next year's budget.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - It's been more than 25 years since workers renovating Abraham Lincoln's home found a letter fragment in a mouse's nest inside a wall. But researchers think they've finally identified the author of the mystery letter as newspaper editor Andrew Johnston.
Stacy Pratt McDermott is an associate editor of The Papers of Abraham Lincoln. She compared handwriting on the fragment with other correspondence between Lincoln and Johnston and found it matched.
The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports that the two men exchanged several letters about poetry and politics.
The March 10, 1846, letter sent from Quincy, Ill., was Johnston's reply to a poem the future president had shared with him.
Papers of Abraham Lincoln Director Daniel Stowell says "it illuminates an interesting part of Lincoln's career in that he enjoyed poetry."

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - It's the final day to submit public comment on proposed rules for high-volume oil and gas drilling in Illinois.
Environmentalists say thousands of comments have been submitted about the process known as hydraulic fracturing. The Southern Illinoisan reports the final number of written comments will be tallied after the public comment period ends Friday.
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources will use the comments to evaluate possible rule changes. A panel of legislators will give final approval.
Gov. Pat Quinn signed regulations into law last year that were hailed as among the toughest in the nation.
Supporters say fracking will create thousands of jobs. Opponents fear it could pollute water resources.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis leaders are pursuing changes to the operations of the city-owned Soldiers Memorial Military Museum.
The downtown museum's collection of war letters, weapons, uniforms and other artifacts has been neglected for years. The museum also needs more than $6 million in repairs. The city has tried several times to find another caretaker for the memorial.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Taylor family, which owns Enterprise Rent-A-Car, is interested in a multimillion dollar overhaul of the museum, and establishing an endowment.
Jeff Rainford, chief of staff for Mayor Francis Slay, says the memorial's fundraising board is talking to other groups that have shown interest in participating in efforts to fix the museum. He says it's early and no commitments have been made, but prospects for help are encouraging.

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Sierra Club is asking an Illinois appeals court to overturn a state board's ruling that allows Dynegy Inc. more time to install soot controls on five coal-fired power plants it recently acquired from Ameren Corp.
   The appeal was recorded yesterday by the 4th District Appellate Court. It seeks reversal of the Pollution Control Board's November decision to give Dynegy until 2020 to install state-required controls on sulfur dioxide emissions.
   The board agreed 3-1 that requiring significant pollution controls on the plants by 2015 would be a financial hardship.
   Holly Bender is deputy director for the Sierra Club's Beyond Coal Campaign. She says the board's ruling went against the evidence and sets a "dangerous precedent."
   Dynegy spokeswoman Katy Sullivan says the variance is more stringent than one granted to Ameren.
