...Snow Showers and Gusty Winds Early Tonight...

Strong gusty winds and snow showers can be expected through
midnight. A dusting to an inch of snow is expected, with up to
2 inches possible at elevations above 4000 feet. The combination
of the subfreezing temperatures and snow showers may cause roads
to become snow covered, with potential for icy travel at the
higher elevations. In addition, passing snow showers may also
cause the winds to gust between 40 and 50 mph. This will result
in blowing snow and lower visibility.

Motorists should be alert for slippery conditions if traveling,
especially across the higher elevations.
