Today: Mostly cloudy skies with widespread rain and snow expected. Up to two feet is possible in the higher terrains and central mountains, but other areas will see smaller amounts of around 2 inches. We could see a dusting in the valley, but a large portion of the moisture will be rain. Temperatures rising to the high 30s and low 40s.
Extended: A strong pacific system moving through the area over the next few days will bring a significant amount of snowfall across the western slope and central mountains. We'll see a short break in the action Tuesday afternoon and into Wednesday before a second system moves through on Thursday, which could bring us a white Christmas! Temperatures dropping through the beginning of the week, and overnight lows will be in the teens by Tuesday night.
Watches and Warnings: The National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories for many areas along the southern mountains beginning tomorrow and continuing through Monday. A Blizzard Warning is also in effect for areas along the northern and central mountains abive 8000 feet through midnight tonight.
