As mentioned, a potently cold trough will dig into the northern Rockies this weekend and bring upwards of 2 Feet of Snow to some peaks through Monday.
Ongoing snow will continue tonight across primarily ID/MT, heavy at times, as the cold front associated with this trough slowly pushes to the south.
By early tomorrow, the main line of precipitation will have moved into NW Wyoming.
Snow will then continue across most of the region during the day Saturday before tapering off a bit Saturday evening.
Getting into Sunday, the center of the trough will push more into the prairie and upslope snow across the eastern slope.
This will continue through the day Sunday and into Monday morning.
Snow will generally taper off for the most part by midday Monday across the region.
