A small weather disturbance will pass through this morning.

Accompanying this system will be some gusty winds and snow showers, both of which will be more prevalent in the morning than the afternoon.

Winds will be from the southwest, turning to the west, with speeds slightly over 10 mph. A few gusts could reach 30 mph, particularly over the higher elevations.

The winds will drop during the afternoon, with speeds only around 5 mph by the late afternoon.

Scattered snow showers will be likely with a coating to locally up to an inch falling. These will taper off, but probably will not completely end of the afternoon.

The snow in the afternoon will be very sporadic, though, with little to no additional accumulation. A brief glimpse of sunshine between flurries may even be possible.
