This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Gusty southwest winds up to 50 mph will encompass much of eastern
Utah and western Colorado through tonight. The exception will be
across extreme northeast Utah and northwest Colorado where a cold
front will push into the area today. Expect scattered rain and
snow showers along and north of this boundary with the rain and
snow spreading south across the remainder of the region tonight.
Snowfall accumulations up to 8 inches are expected for the
mountains north of Interstate with light amounts elsewhere.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

There is a good chance for valley rain showers and mountain snow
showers each afternoon and evening as a series of moist Pacific
storms pass through. Colder air moving in may flip the valleys
over to all snow by Thursday morning. Expect moderate to heavy
snow accumulations for the mountains with light accumulating snow
in the valleys Thursday. A brief break will arrive Friday and
Saturday, although more rain and snow arrives Sunday and will be
sticking around through Tuesday.


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