Here's the snowfall forecast:
There are some significant uncertainties in this situation, meaning the forecast is likely going to change. Temperatures will be near freezing throughout this entire event. We are relying on heavy precipitation to occur throughout the entire event to keep surface temperatures near or below freezing. If the precipitation lightens up, snow will change over to rain showers in the lower elevations. We're taking this into account when making our forecast for the lower elevations. The higher elevations are expected to stay snow throughout this entire event.
