DISCUSSION: A couple of weak disturbances will be moving through
the Northern Rockies over the next 48 hours bringing widespread
light snow showers. The mountains can anticipate a couple of
inches of fairly dry snow. North central Idaho up into northwest
Montana should receive the heaviest amount of snow from these
disturbances. Northerly flow will then persist through at least
Thursday keeping scattered showers over the region.
