The jet stream that has been driving heavy snowfall and intense winds will weaken through the day and slowly shift east. Snowfall is forecasted to wind down to isolated flurries. A ridge builds to our west, issuing frigid and dry air this evening, perhaps our coldest temps this winter. The lull in action won’t last long, as a Pacific trough digs into the Great Basin Wednesday night, bringing significant snowfall to the Elk Mountains on Christmas.
