A storm system moving along the West Coast has been producing significant snow across the mountains in the western parts of the nation. Some mountain peaks have seen accumulations of more than 2 feet. Most of the heavy snow has diminished, although some freezing rain is causing travel problems in Montana, Utah and Idaho.
The storm will start to weaken today (Thursday) and heavy snowfall will end. Another low pressure center will continue to pump moisture into the West from the Pacific Ocean as it moves ashore this weekend.
