This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the western two thirds of
Utah and southwest Wyoming.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Light snow will begin to develop across the northern mountains
later tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

A potent Pacific storm system will impact the region during the
latter half of the holiday weekend into early next week, bringing
snow and much colder temperatures. Ahead of this storm south
winds are expected to become gusty and potentially strong across
western Utah Sunday. The cold front will likely be accompanied by
a band of heavy snow as it crosses northern Utah Sunday afternoon,
then central and southwest Utah Sunday evening into Sunday night.
Heavy snow may linger through Monday and possibly into Tuesday
across mountainous locations favored in northwest flow, as well as
locations downwind of the Great Salt Lake and Utah lake. Snow is
expected to taper off by Tuesday afternoon.


Weather spotters are encouraged to report significant weather
conditions according to standard operating procedures.
