It should be enough to get the snow level down near the base, but accumulations will be light. A little cloudiness will hang around Friday night into Saturday morning, so I won't go as cold, as I typically would…

The humidity values drop off rapidly late in the afternoon and evening, so I expect amounts to be light.

This system does split, and move northeastward across the area on Thursday and Friday with the 700 mb temperatures dropping to -1'C by Friday, so the snow level likely dropping to about 8500 feet.

The first area of low pressure into California will be spreading some clouds toward us with a chance of showers or a thunderstorm tomorrow afternoon and evening.
