DISCUSSION: Expect some light mountain snow showers until the
next cold front arrives Sunday. Through Monday morning expect 3 to
7 inches of new snow in the mid elevations and up to a foot at
high elevations. As usual, this front will also bring some wind
with it, but nothing exceptional is expected with ridge top winds
20 to 25 mph and gusts 30 to 40 mph Sunday night and Monday
morning. Temperatures will remain cold enough that snow density is
expected to be low to moderate. Additional snow accumulations are
expected on Monday.
