  Wednesday. Further north along the Hiline...the rain has already
  switched to snow and will also continue into Wednesday. A period
  of moderate snow will be possible with the heaviest snow
  showers. More snow is possible into Thursday...but confidence
  remains lower as to the exact location of accumulating snow.

* Impacts...Visibility may be reduced to less than 1 mile at times
  in falling snow. Roads may become snow-covered and slushy.
  Slower travel is likely for the Wednesday morning commute. The
  wet nature of the snow combined with colder temperatures will
  likely make conditions tougher on young livestock.
