.DISCUSSION...A storm system will move south across the
region today and Saturday, resulting in the development of
showers. In addition, cold air aloft will aid in snow levels
falling to 1500 feet, which will favor accumulating snowfall
over the higher terrain. A second round of high elevation snow
will be possible Sunday and Monday.
