...Significant snowfall may impact the Western Mountains late
tonight through Friday morning...

A new storm will move towards the area today. Initially, the
airmass will be rather warm with southern parts of the ranges
below 8500 feet seeing more rain than snow tonight and Thursday.
Further north it will be colder with most mountain and foothill
areas seeing mostly snow. As the storm system and cold front
approach Thursday night, colder, all areas will change to snow
with the heaviest snow period developing Thursday night. Early
indications point to 7 to 14 inches in most of the mountains
above 9000 feet. In addition, strong winds behind the cold front
Thursday night will lead to areas of blowing snow over the higher
exposed and pass locations.
