Travel concerns will increase on Tuesday as a cold front lumbers through the region. This will bring snow showers in the mountains by Tuesday afternoon. A few scattered rain showers will move into the valleys in the region with a mix of snow and rain during the late afternoon and early evening. Accumulations in the mountains will be between 1”-4” with a trace of snow for valleys. A few showers are possible early on Wednesday, but overall drier conditions for the Treasure State for both Wednesday and Thursday.
