mountains will transition to 3 to 7 inches over the northwest high
valleys.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

There is a good chance for valley rain showers and mountain snow
showers each afternoon and evening as a series of moist Pacific

although more rain and snow arrives Sunday and will be sticking
around through Tuesday.
