Another storm system will push into the Valley on Wednesday that will likely bring additional chances for wintry precipitation through the end of the week. Currently, the precipitation looks to start as snow on Wednesday and some of that snowfall could accumulate before changing over to rain by the afternoon.

Then, colder air moves into the Valley Wednesday night changing the precipitation back over to snow for the remainder of the week. There is some uncertainty with the track of this storm system and it will need to be monitored throughout the week.
