Cold air and abundant moisture will lead to a round of heavy snow in the higher elevations across the West. Winter weather alerts extend from the Laramie Range in Wyoming to Big Bear in California. More than a foot may fall in the highest elevations, especially in the Rockies of Colorado.
A front draped across the west will be the focus for snow development. A low pressure center in Kansas and another near Las Vegas will help to enhance snowfall throughout the night. The system will weaken Thursday and snowfall will diminish throughout the day.
