Look for cloud ceilings to lower over the high peaks by sunrise, and accumulating snow to fall by mid morning. Gusty winds and snow should continue until about midnight, though favorable northwest orographics could keep light snow going over higher terrain into Monday morning. Total snow accumulations look to range between 4-8”, though the usual suspects in the Kebler and Paradise Divide zones could approach 12” when the storm finally clears out. Winds will be similar to our last storm, with strong southwest winds swapping to the northwest around 3-4pm when the cold front passes, producing near whiteout conditions at times. Calmer conditions fill in behind the front for early next week, with another possible storm Saturday.
