(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)- A young singer is needing your help for a competition. 

Ashlyn Ford, 13, of St. Joseph is probably familiar to many of you for her role as the younger sister in the movie "Christmas at the Chateau." But before acting, music has been a big part of her life since she was a little girl.

Now she's getting to share her talent at the Celebration of Music Talent Show in Springfield next weekend.

Ford said she's been spending many hours practicing but is excited to show the judges what she's got.

"I'm excited to have the opportunity to go and perform in from of other people in a different area in Missouri and meet other musicians," Ford said. "It's an opportunity to share my gift and just have fun."

Not only does the judges get to decide on a winner. The public also gets to vote and have a say on their favorite contestant online.

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.
