.DISCUSSION...
A cold front will move through during Sunday morning. Rain early
in the morning will turn to snow showers as temperatures fall.
The transition to snow is expected to occur around noon, though there
will be some variation in timing between higher and lower elevations
on the mountain. Snow accumulations aren`t expected to be significant,
perhaps up to an inch or two, especially close to the summit.

Winds will definitely be strong, especially in more exposed areas
closer to the summit. In those areas, winds will gust between 50-60 mph
all day. In more protected areas, expect wind gusts on the order
of 30-40 mph.
