The first storm will produce accumulating snow in the northern mountains Monday evening into Tuesday. Light accumulation of snow in the valley is also possible with this storm.

The NWS also reports hazy conditions will continue in the northern valleys until at least Sunday morning. There will also be gusty winds in the Unita Basin on Sunday.
