Probabilistic Heavy Snow and Icing Discussion

...Northern California to the Northern Rockies....
Days 1-3...

A series of shortwaves moving through a broad upper trough will
continue to support periods of organized precipitation, including
high elevation snow from the Klamath Mountains and the Shasta
Cascade region to the northern Rockies into midweek.  For much of
the Intermountain West and the northern Rockies, snow levels are
expected to remain above 5000 ft across much of the region through
most of the period, limiting the threat for widespread heavy snow
accumulations.  For the Klamath Mountains, Shasta and the southern
Oregon Cascade region, an upper low dropping southeast across the
northeastern Pacific may bring heavier snow to the high
elevations.  Snow levels are expected to briefly drop below 5000
ft as the system moves across the region on Monday.

The probability of ice accumulations greater than 0.25 inch is
less than 10 percent.
