Two roughs of low pressure affect the country today, one in the east and one in the west producing rain and snow. The heaviest snow accumulations once again will be in the mountains in the west, and a few inches possible in parts of the Appalachian mountains in the east. High winds are also expected in parts of the west especially along the coast from northern CA to WA with some along the OR coast seeing gusts in the 35-50mph range. As the western trough heads towards the Plains today snow chances will be on the increase this evening in eastern MT and western Dakotas, and the the rest of SD and northern NE during the overnight. Freezing drizzle chances increase overnight in southern NE, and northern KS as well.
