A Pacific storm will bring rain and mountain snow to the Pacific Northwest from Washington to Northern California today. Snow showers are forecast from the Northern Rockies southward to New Mexico. Scattered rain showers will be prevalent up and down the western U.S. with precipitation extending as far south as central California by Wednesday evening. Five to eight inches of snow is possible across the Sacramento Mountains in southern New Mexico. Highs will be seasonally cool from the 20s and 30s across the Intermountain West to the 50s and 60s in the Southwest.
