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

A LARGE, BUT RATHER DISORGANIZED, LOW PRESSURE STORM SYSTEM, WILL
PUSH ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY. SNOW WILL
FAVOR SOUTHWEST COLORADO THIS MORNING THROUGH TONIGHT, WITH GREATER
ACCUMULATIONS AMONG THE SAN JUANS, GRAND MESA AND VALLEYS OF
SOUTHWEST COLORADO.  A LESSER CHANCE WILL EXIST IN NORTHEAST UTAH
AND NORTHWEST COLORADO. SNOW WILL LINGER THROUGH THURSDAY AS THE
SYSTEM EXITS THE REGION, BUT ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO BE FAIRLY
LIGHT. SOME RAIN MAY MIX IN WITH SNOW AT LOWER ELEVATIONS.

WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRY WEATHER BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON. AN
UNSETTLED AND MOIST NORTHWEST FLOW WILL SET UP ACROSS NORTHWEST
COLORADO LATE THIS WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK, AS HIGH PRESSURE
BUILDS TO THE WEST, RESULTING IN PERSISTENT SNOW ACROSS THE NORTHERN
AND CENTRAL MOUNTAINS OF WESTERN COLORADO.

TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN NEAR SEASONAL LEVELS.
