Here comes the final kick! As moisture moves east of us today, an upper level trough crosses the state, shifting flow from southwest to west to northwest through tomorrow. Unstable air will continue to fuel snow showers. Wind speeds remain elevated today and pick up again tomorrow on the backside of the trough. An associated cold front swoops down from the Northwest tonight intensifying snowfall. Kebler Pass and Paradise Divide can do quite well with this shift in flow direction. Ridging from the West Coast will bring an end to the storm on Wednesday, with skies clearing and a warming trend in the latter half of the week.
