The advisory, which will remain in effect through 10 a.m. Monday, will bring strong winds, rain and eventually snow.

Above 7,000 feet, snow accumulations could range between 6 – 12 inches, with localized amounts of up to 15 inches, according to the National Weather Service. Below 7,000 feet, 2 – 4 inches could accumulate, with up to 6 inches accumulating west of State Route 89.

The heaviest snow will occur between 10 p.m. Sunday and 4 a.m. Monday. “Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times due to snow and gusty winds,” NWS warns.

Wind gusts could range 30 to 50 mph Sunday before precipitation starts. Gusts will generally be 20 to 35 mph after precipitation starts.
