Weather Focus Shifts To The West This Weekend
A strong system and cold front will dive and carve through the West this weekend. Widespread mountain snow is expected for the favored terrain, as some winter storm watches have been issued. This system will then evolve into a multi-hazard storm of heavy rain, flooding and severe thunderstorms early to the middle of next week, from the Lower Mississippi Valley through the saturated Mid South.
