FOR EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO, HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER
SYNOPSIS.

HIGH PRESSURE AND WEST-SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW WILL LEAD TO ANOTHER
MOSTLY SUNNY AND UNSEASONABLY WARM DAY TODAY. UPPER LEVEL WINDS WILL
TURN MORE SOUTHWESTERLY ON THURSDAY AS AN APPROACHING LOW PRESSURE
SYSTEM BEGINS TO AFFECT THE REGION. THURSDAY WILL REMAIN WARM, BUT
CLOUDS WILL BEGIN TO FILTER INTO THE REGION ALONG WITH INCREASED
WINDS. LIGHT RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS FROM THIS SYSTEM WILL START TO
FALL THURSDAY EVENING, AND BECOME HEAVIER THROUGH FRIDAY. INITIALLY,
SNOW WILL FALL ONLY FOR THE HIGH MOUNTAINS OF NORTHEASTERN UTAH AND
WESTERN COLORADO, BUT BY FRIDAY EVENING SNOW WILL LOW TO AROUND SIX
THOUSAND FEET IN THE NORTHERN PORTIONS OF OUR REGION. THIS IS A FAST
MOVING SYSTEM, WITH MOST OF THE PRECIPITATION ENDING BY FRIDAY
NIGHT, FOLLOWED BY A DRY AND COOLER WEEKEND.
