.DISCUSSION...A quiet period of weather through Sunday afternoon,
other than some gusty winds. Winds actually increase again around
4-6pm, due to the exiting storm strengthening a bit to our
southeast. They will remain elevated through 9-11am Sunday it
looks like this morning. Snow will move back into the central
mountains Sunday evening and spread east through the rest of the
night and Monday. Snow amounts will be light but winds are
forecast around 15-30mph including gusts.
