Up to 14 inches of snow is expected around Red Lodge, Montana and Sheridan, Wyoming, with temperatures well below freezing. Winter weather advisories were issued for portions of Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada and Utah. In northern Arizona, snow showers will continue into mid-morning Tuesday for the Flagstaff region, with flurries through the day in far northern Arizona.
