system. because the storm appears to be moving in earlier, that means the storm will have a little more cold air to work with. so, we think the precipitation will start around midnight sunday night/monday morning in the form of snow and continue as snow as it moves farther east through at least midday monday. after that, we could see a switchover in some spots the mountains will likely stay snow for a longer period by sometime monday afternoon to a
