TONIGHT: Snow showers are scattered out throughout the region providing off and on snow for everyone tonight. The snow showers will cover more area as we continue into the overnight hours with the heaviest and more widespread snow found in the early morning hours. The wind is very strong currently with sustained winds between 20-30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. It will continue to be this windy tonight and into tomorrow. The snow and wind combined are combining to close lots of roads and greatly reduce visibility. Low temperatures get down to the teens and lower 20's.
TOMORROW: Snow showers will decrease in number as we continue on through the day. Snow can probably be found everywhere in the early morning hours, but there will only be a slight snow shower or two by the evening hours tomorrow. Accumulation for most regions looks to be between an additional 2-4 inches. Winds will continue to be very gusty with sustained wind speeds up to 30 mph. Expect travel delays and road closures again with the combo of heavy snow and strong winds. This will continue also until the evening hours. High temperatures drop into the teens and 20's.
LONG TERM: A break is finally in store on Tuesday from the snow. With the exception of some snow flurries in the mountain peaks on Tuesday, most areas should stay dry. A few snow showers pop back up on Wednesday and Thursday before our next major system of snow will come on Friday. Next weekend appears to be dry then after that. Winds will calm down a lot starting Tuesday, look to pick back up for the incoming system on Thursday night and Friday, and then return to being calm next weekend. During this stretch, high temperatures get down to the single digits and 10's for Tuesday and Wednesday with some lows going below zero starting Monday night. High's slowly rebound into the 20's by Thursday and for the rest of the week.
