...Mountain snowfall continues through the week...

Two storm systems will take aim at eastern Utah and western
Colorado this week. The first will arrive Monday evening and
continue through early Wednesday, bringing a period of moderate
snowfall to the mountains with rain showers in the valleys. Snow
levels will drop from 8000 feet Tuesday morning to around 7000
feet by the time precipitation ends on Wednesday morning. 6 to 12
inches of snowfall may fall across the San Juans, central Colorado
mountains, and Flat Tops with locally higher amounts in the
highest elevations.

The second storm system will arrive on Thursday evening and will
last through Saturday. This storm will once again bring a period
of accumulating snowfall to all mountain zones, however there is
still uncertainty regarding snowfall totals at this time.
