Moderate to heavy snow is possible Thursday across the Coastal Range, Great Basin, and Rockies. Some icing may be possible along and east of the Coastal Range.

Coastal Range and Great Basin/Rockies: As the next area of low pressure begins to advance further inland in the Pacific Northwest, additional precipitation will spread eastward from the Great Basin into the Central Rockies. Moderate to heavy snow will be possible through areas of highest elevation, with accumulations of 2-8 inches. Localized heavier accumulations could occur. Risk for icing through the Coastal Range in Northern Oregon and Southern Washington will be possible, with accumulations of up to .25 of an inch.

Elsewhere, significant impacts are not anticipated at this time. Lingering snow showers will continue through the Northern Great Lakes into Canada with accumulations remaining under 4 inches. Further south into the Gulf of Mexico, showers and thunderstorms will build through the day with additional rainfall through the Western and Southern Gulf. Accumulations should remain under 1 inch, with winds strong northerly winds behind the front.
