About 1-3” of snow could fall at pass levels. The snow level is expected to begin at the 6500-7500 foot level, then fall to the 5000-6500 foot level by Tuesday evening.

A second, stronger storm looks to be on the way Wednesday evening and last through Friday.

This storm is expected to be wetter, with valley and foothill rain totals expected to be between .25-2” and 12-18” of snow at pass level.
