From the StormTracker Weather Center: A very moist system is slowing moving inland off the Pacific today. The system will bring us snow on and off during the day and into tonight. I'm not expecting much in the way of accumulation in the valleys, however, the mountains, including passes could see several inches of fresh snow.
