Areas above 6,000 feet will have the potential to pick up 10 inches by the end of the day.

The wind is will remain brisk this afternoon, likely around 15 to 20 mph sustained.

Slightly stronger wind will bump the temperatures a bit on Tuesday allowing for highs in the upper 30s and low 40s.

The gustiest wind is expected to be in the afternoon and continue overnight.

Temperatures will remain just above average on Wednesday before much colder air moves in during the afternoon.

This cold air mass will drop temperatures to the upper teens overnight.
