...Accumulating Snow Above 6000 feet Tonight across the Rocky
Mountain Front...

Snow is expected to develop along the Rocky Mountain Front late
this afternoon, and persist throughout the night tonight for
elevations at or above 6000 feet. By Sunday morning, snow
accumulations of several inches will be possible at pass level,
with 4 to 8 inches atop ridgetops. In addition to the falling
snow, winds will increase in earnest throughout the nighttime
hours. Sustained winds of 40 to 50 mph, with gusts nearing 75 mph
will create whiteout conditions at times. Those with outdoor
interests, especially hunters, should be prepared for adverse
winter conditions.
