NO ADDITIONAL ACCUMULATION IS EXPECTED SO WILL ALLOW THE ADVISORY FOR THIS AREA TO EXPIRE AT 15Z. THE CENTRAL VALLEY ADVISORY WILL ALSO BE ALLOWED TO EXPIRE AT 16Z. LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS MAY CONTINUE IN NORTHERN AREAS AND THE MOUNTAINS THROUGH THE AFTERNOON WHERE DEEPER MOISTURE AND STEEPER LAPSE RATES WILL KEEP LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS GOING.
