DISCUSSION: Snow levels will rise Sunday into Monday as
temperatures warm. Drier conditions are expected until Tuesday,
when a big transition will come in the form of another cold front.
Precipitation will begin as early as Tuesday morning, and become
more widespread by the evening. Winds with this system will not be
as strong as the last, but will still lead to gusts in the 30 to
40 mph range in the terrain. Snow levels drop to near 2500 ft by
Wednesday morning as snow showers continue across the area.

Not much changes through the late week and into the weekend as continued
unsettled weather with quick shots of moisture leads to chances
for snow almost every day.
