Those two states, as well as the majority of the west will see snowfall through Friday. That accumulation will also be accompanied by sub zero temps in some places. Look for the next sunny skies to appear on Christmas Eve as cold and sunny weather moves in by 12/25/17. The good news is there will be some leftover snow on the ground for most western mountain towns this X-Mas.
