After the valley got two inches of snow overnight, slick roads and blowing snow created some issues for those traveling Tuesday. Winds were in the 15 to 30 mile an hour range Tuesday, and arctic conditions are expected to be back soon.

That warm weather stretch still appears to be here in the Valley when you look at the high temperatures, but Tuesday's low temperatures could reach between -5 and -10 degrees.

These weather conditions don't seem to bother those who enjoy the great outdoors. But if you were driving Tuesday, you probably experienced a lot of scattered snow drifts on the road. Officials say we could be seeing blizzard conditions on Thursday.

Mark Ewens with the National Weather Service said, "There's a very potent storm system that actually started way out over the China mainland about six seven days ago and it's been zipping across the Pacific currently and the Gulf of Alaska. It'll be crashing on shore over the next 24 hours and then diving across the plains."

For the foreseeable forecast, officials we'll be on a temperature rollercoaster. While winds were blowing between 15 to 30 miles an hour Tuesday, Thursday the winds could reach 50 miles an hour.
