The initial band of snow could be moderate at times. In addition,
winds are expected to pick up ahead and behind the frontal

blowing and drifting snow. Morning commuters should be aware of
potential weather impacts to their travel. Snow showers and breezy
winds will continue into Wednesday night before dissipating
Thursday morning. Valley snow amounts will generally range in the
1-2 inch range for areas along and north of U.S. Highway 50.
