The High Country could get the first chance to see seasonal snow, to some degree, this weekend. The National Weather Service says that Saturday night and into the overnight Sunday could offer the first real chance for up slope snow showers of the fall season. The Weather Service added on Friday that very minor acculmations will be possible, but only for the highest points above 3,000 feet. Even then only 1/4 to 3/4 of an inch would be possible. No travel problems are expected.
The Weather Services says that Sunday will bring the coldest temperatures in place since late last Spring. Highs are forecast to only reach the mid 30s, with lows dropping into the teens likely.
By snow event standards, the High Country is late in even having the chance for snow for this time of year. In recent years at least two to three snow events have occurred, or had the possibility to occur, by late November.
