... Winter storm to bring snow wind and cold to the region from
late this weekend into early next week...

An approaching winter storm will cause snow showers to develop
across the central mountains... Continental Divide and Island Park
areas beginning Saturday morning which may cause some snow
covered roads to develop. Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches of snow
will be possible through Saturday evening across these areas. Snow
will then become heavier Saturday night and Sunday and is
currently expected to be heaviest Sunday afternoon and evening. In
addition winds will increase through the day Sunday... with wind
gusts in excess of 35 mph possible at mid and upper slopes. This
may cause areas of blowing snow. The combination of falling snow
and blowing snow will reduce visibilities and make travel
potentially hazardous. Snow accumulations of 6 to 12 inches with
locally higher amounts are possible for mid and upper slopes
Sunday and Sunday night. Snow is also expected to develop across
the snake plain Sunday evening causing difficult travel. Snow of 1
to 2 inches is forecast for the snake plain during this time. Temperatures
will then fall rapidly behind a cold front Sunday night... likely
freezing any damp or wet roadways. The coldest air of the season
will filter into the region after the cold front Sunday night.
Those planning to travel during particularly the second half of
the weekend may consider altering travel plans to avoid the
impacts associated with this winter storm. Those with outdoor
plans during this time should anticipate significant snow and
cold. Stay tuned for future forecast updates and messaging to stay
updated on how this winter storm may impact you.
