This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The threat for significant precipitation increases this afternoon
as the next storm system tracks across the Great Basin. Mountain
snowfall will transition to rain near the 8000 foot mark with
significant snow developing over many of the mountain ranges above
9000 feet tonight. Strong instability will lead to isolated
thunderstorm development this afternoon and evening with the
spring storm. Travel may be impacted by the winter weather.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Unsettled weather continues Tuesday into early Wednesday as this
system progresses eastward. Snow remains a threat in the high
elevations and an isolated thunderstorm will be possible most
areas Tuesday afternoon. After a short break another Pacific
storm systems will move through the area late in the week. This
will again bring the potential for winter weather and hazardous
driving conditions over the mountain passes with mountain snow and
valley rain.


Spotter activation is not expected today or tonight, however
spotters are encouraged to report snowfall amounts to the
National Weather Service in Grand Junction.
