high pressure moves over the area.

support snow, primarily above 6,000 feet. Periods of heavy snow
may make travel difficult at pass level. Terrain enhanced snow
showers will linger through Sunday evening. A quick break gives
way to another strong storm beginning Monday night. Significant
snowfall in mountain zones is expected once again. Snow will
linger through Tuesday afternoon as the storm departs to the east.
