Patchy dense fog will be possible across valley locations through mid-morning Friday. Starting Saturday and going through next week, a weak trough of low pressure will swing across the Great Basin, potentially producing some light precipitation. A somewhat more vigorous system will cross the region Wednesday. This system will likely produce accumulating snowfall.
