.DISCUSSION...

The heaviest snow is over.  However, snow showers could produce
additional accumulations of an inch or less.  A new round of
snow showers may develop over the burn site during the late
afternoon and evening hours as a weak disturbance moves through.

Below average temperatures will continue through Wednesday before
returning to near average levels Thursday through the weekend.
New weather systems will bring additional chances for snow to the
burn site late Wednesday through Thursday and again late Friday
into Saturday.  Each system has the potential to dump maybe 1-3
inches of new snow on the burn site.
