Area Forecast Discussion

938 PM PST MON MAR 2 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
A weather system will pass through this evening, with potential
for scattered snow showers along with breezy conditions across
much of the region. The snow shower threat and winds abate
overnight into Tuesday.  Much colder air moves in behind this
system, with temperatures well below average for the middle of the
week. A dry period, with moderating temperature will follow for
the end of the week.

.DISCUSSION...
Snow showers are on the decrease both in intensity and coverage
per recent radar. Some of the locations that received snow from
the most intense snow showers or multiple snow showers were able
to produce localized accumulations as much as 3-4 inches, with
many locations in between showers that received little to no snow.
Brisk and gusty northerly wind remain in the wake of the
disturbance passage and will blow overnight but subside through
the day tomorrow. More grid adjustments may be necessary but text
based forecasts seem to be handling the current trend and may be
updated once the snow showers are over. /Pelatti

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: Snow showers bringing spotty IFR ceilings and
visibilities on the decrease this evening and should end and/or
move out of the area tonight. Other issue of note is the brisk and
gusty northerly winds moving into the area behind the disturbance
that brought the snow showers. All will move out of the area
tonight and wind should decrease tomorrow with the expecation that
VFR conditions will prevail tomorrow. /Pelatti
