(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)— Benton girls basketball coach Kerstyn Bolton announced her resignation to KQ2 on Wednesday morning and her players speaking out in her support.

A report of a video that includes Bolton having a verbal exchange surfaced this week and Bolton decided to resign. 

She said that it was best for her to do so, but her former players have her back.

"You don't know the full story," Former player Bailey Russell said. "The video doesn't show the full story. I don't know the full story, but I know Bolton. She's a good person and at the end of the day, she's human. We're all human and we make mistakes."

A cold front is currently moving through our area this morning dropping temperatures into the lower 40s and upper 30s. Today will be a cool day with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s with increasing clouds. Temperatures will fall into the lower 30s tonight. We could see a few areas of light rain and drizzle this evening, but precipitation chances will start to increase overnight into tomorrow morning. With the sub freezing temperatures, precipitation will transition from light rain and drizzle in the evening to snow overnight into Tuesday morning. Snowfall will continue through the morning hours on Tuesday before transitioning to a rain/snow mix while it exits the area. Most areas will see around 1-3 inches. Accumulations will stay mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces, but expect slushy road conditions Tuesday morning. Conditions will slowly start to improve for the rest of the work week with sunshine returning and temperatures slowly warming. Rain chances will return for the end of the work week.
