Snow is expected to begin falling Saturday night, though it may remain as rain or create slushy conditions in valleys and other areas of lower elevation. The snow will continue into Sunday morning but will likely taper off Sunday afternoon.

More snow is expected Sunday night and into Monday morning, the warning states. Fox 13 meteorologist Brek Bolton says valleys and benches could see 4-8 inches snow through Tuesday morning.  Accumulations of 18-30 inches are possible in the mountains.

The National Weather Service states the biggest impact to commuters will be on Monday and Tuesday mornings. Drivers are urged to plan ahead for possible delays and use extra caution when driving in winter conditions.
