A BLIZZARD WARNING remains in effect until midnight tonight for areas along the Rocky Mountain Front.  If roads aren’t closed, many have drifting snow, hardpack snow, and ice.  The wind will ease up overnight, and the next few days will actually be pretty pleasant.  Wednesday will be partly to mostly sunny with highs in the 30s.  The wind be lighter out of the southwest.  Thursday is the first of March, and the beginning of Meteorological Spring.  It might almost feel like spring with sunshine and temperatures in the 30s and low 40s.  But technically it’s still winter and wintry weather returns Friday and the weekend.  A few waves of low pressure will bring snow through the state at times over the weekend.  Friday night into Saturday and then later Sunday into Monday appear to be times of increased snow.  Accumulation should be limited to a few inches in the lower elevations, with as much as 6-12″ in the higher mountains.  Scattered snow could continue into Monday.
