Warmer weather is on its way to Columbia. But first, we'll have a bit more wintry precipitation.

COLUMBIA — Put the snow shovels away and hang up the parka, warmer weather is on the way.

But first, Columbia must endure a few more cold days. 

Forecasters at the National Weather Service in St. Louis are calling for rain Monday evening and into the day Tuesday, when it will likely turn into snow. Warmer, sunnier weather is expected later in the week with the possibility of more precipitation Saturday. 

The precipitation is expected to be light.

"It's not going to be a huge deal," said Ben Miller, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service. "A tenth of an inch of rain, less than a half of an inch of snow."

Highs will remain in the upper 30s to mid-40s until Friday when they are expected to climb to the upper 50s over the weekend. 

Supervising editor is Karen Miller.
