Winter makes a return for western states this weekend. From Idaho to as far south as Arizona could see winter like conditions. Accumulating snow and freezing temperatures are the biggest concerns. Although some might not like the early onset of winter weather, ski lovers rejoice as the mountainous areas of Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho will get in on the winter gold.
For Colorado, the snowfall in the higher terrain will be above 10,000 feet and accumulations could be anywhere from three to six inches.
The mountains of Utah are expected to see four to eight inches only above 6,500 feet. Snowfall should start to diminish come Sunday evening.
Anywhere form five to 10 inches of accumulating snow above 7,500 feet will fall in parts of Wyoming. Only three to six inches is expected in elevations lower than 7,500 feet.
Southeast portions of the state of Idaho, above 6,000 feet, will see less than two inches of winter precipitation and are expected to see low to medium impacts on roads.
