After a break, more mountain snows are headed for the West. Winter Storm Warnings have been issued for the Sierra Nevada Mountains with Winter Storm Watches in parts of Nevada, Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota. Big time accumulations are ahead, with 3 to 5 feet of snow likely for the highest elevations.
Wind alerts have been issued from the Front Range of Wyoming southward to the Mexican Border. Gusts may climb above 55 mph at times. A cold front stretched out across the region will help to create widespread moisture and strong winds.
The first front will push eastward into the Front Range Thursday as another system moves into the west coast from the Pacific Ocean. More snow, rain and wind will impact the region into the weekend.
