Our next storm arrives Sunday... cloudier morning skies and scattered showers make way for more widespread rain by the afternoon... snow for the higher elevations and mountains. Sunday evening into Monday morning offers the best window for locally heavy rain and snow. The mountains will see significant snow. Rain and snow chances continue into Monday as the system exits Monday night... head over to the "Weather" tab for more information.
