Given temperatures in the mid to upper 30s to around 40 degrees, accumulation aside from a possible brief dusting on grassy areas is not anticipated. A few slick spots may develop on roadways, especially bridges and overpasses, and motorists should use caution. Winds of 15 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph are expected through the overnight hours at elevations above 3500 ft. This along with brief snow showers could temporarily reduce visibility. Motorists should exercise caution while driving. $$
