.DISCUSSION...
Strong upper level jet will transport moisture and lift into SE
Utah overnight. This will lead to fairly widespread...sometimes
heavy...snow through morning on Tuesday. 3 to 5 inches are possible
near the burn area. A cold front will sweep through and signal drier
air moving in aloft. This should lead the snow becoming scattered
in nature in the afternoon with some breaks in the clouds. Southwest
winds ahead of the front will turn northwest in the late morning
time frame and remain this direction into Wednesday.
