.DISCUSSION...A strong area of low pressure will slowly slide
eastward along the ID/UT border today and into WY tomorrow. This
will maintain northerly flow across the forecast area along with
periods of snow showers, particularly for those north-favored
slopes. Snow showers should wind down Friday night into Saturday.
Temperatures will remain below freezing through the period. The
next system brings more snow beginning late Sunday and persisting
through early next week.
