The National Weather Service says that a strong storm system will bring wintry conditions to the region late next week into the weekend.

While forecast details are uncertain due to model differences, officials expect a mix of rain and snow to develop over the area Thursday and Thursday night.

Precipitation will change to mostly snow on Friday and gusty northerly winds may create a hazardous combination of wind and snow in places such as Judith Gap.

Chances for snow will persist into at least Saturday night, then taper off for Sunday.

Snow accumulation amounts are uncertain at this point but the potential exists for significant accumulations over the area.

Temperatures are expected to fall below normal on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be quite cold with readings in the teens and 20's.

Travel will likely become difficult late this week and conditions will be hazardous for outdoor recreationists.
