.DISCUSSION...Light snow showers will end by this evening
across the Sawtooths. Weak inversions develop Thursday and Friday,
but temperature differences don`t appear too drastic within the
inversion layer right now. That said, the overall pattern is for
warmer temperatures heading into the weekend. The next storm
arrives for the weekend. While it`s too early to venture
a guess on snow amounts, this could produce some good snows above
7000ft until the front arrives Sunday.
