Snow showers can be expected at times through the night as a result of strong cold advection, orographic lift, and weak upper- level disturbances in northwest flow aloft. A dusting to an inch of snow is possible, with up to 2 inches possible at elevations above 3000 feet. Temperatures have dropped below freezing, especially at the higher elevations. The combination of the subfreezing temperatures and snow showers may cause untreated roads to become snow covered for at times. However, road surfaces are likely above freezing owing to the recent warm weather. If you plan to travel overnight and early Tuesday, be alert for slick spots on roads and reduced visibilities when these heavier snow showers are encountered. Reduce speed and allow extra distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. $$
