.DISCUSSION...An area of low pressure will move eastward across
northern Nevada and Utah through Thursday, and into Wyoming on
Friday. This will create moderately strong northerly winds through
Thursday along with periods of snow showers, particularly later
Thursday through Friday. Temperatures will be colder than seen
over recent weeks, and should remain below freezing for most areas
through the weekend.
