-GOOD WEDNESDAY MORNING, EVERYONE...
The system that has been delivering snow to the High Desert all night will continue to do so through the day today. We are expecting another 2-4" to accumulate on a cold, windy day. Highs will only be in the mid 20's and northerly winds will pick up to 15-20 mph with gusts to 25 mph. Snow showers will taper off tonight adding only an inch or two. Lows will be in the teens with gentler NW winds.
Travel alert: Chains or traction tires are required on all mountain passes. Blowing snow will reduce visibility. Please make sure you and you vehicle are prepared for the trip.
The snow showers should subside about mid-morning Thanksgiving Day and that will leave us under mostly cloudy skies for the balance of the day. Winds will be gentle out of the north and daytime highs will be in the mid 20's. Lows will be in the low single digits.
We will see some additional clearing Friday, but we will stay cold. Highs will be in the mid 20's and lows be in the low single digits once again. Under partly cloudy skies Saturday, we will see a slight chance of scattered snow showers with highs around 30. Clouds will thicken bringing a chance of showers with highs in the mid 30's Sunday.
We will live with a slight chance of mixed showers Monday and then skies turn partly cloudy with highs around 40 Tuesday.
