Ludwig said the snow is coming from an upper-level system wending its way down from the gulf of Alaska and then down the coast of British Columbia and then inland.
He said a couple of smaller systems will drop some snow as well Wednesday through Thursday, with a 20% chance of 4 inches of snow or more, 50% of 2 inches or more and a 70% chance of 1 inch.
