A series of powerful storms will make travel across the mountains difficult if not impossible late Wednesday through Thursday. In the short term, the valley is under a Winter Weather Advisory tonight into early tomorrow morning, with accumulations of up to a few inches in the valley with more possible in the foothills. Wednesday starts with a bit of a break, before a very powerful storm brings high winds and heavy snow to the mountains (and possibly significant rain to the valleys.) A Blizzard Warning is in effect above 7,000′ for the mountains from 7 pm Wednesday until 7 am Thursday. A Winter Storm Warning is also posted starting 4 pm Wednesday running into early Friday morning. Conditions dry up Friday and Saturday before the next storm (not as strong this time) comes in on Sunday.
