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

THE FORECAST AREA WILL EXPERIENCE A BREAK FROM THE WINTER WEATHER
TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS
IN. BY EARLY THURSDAY, A PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM WILL SPREAD A CHANCE
OF RAIN AND SNOW INTO EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO, AS IT
PUSHES IN FROM THE NORTHWEST. COLDER AIR WILL CHANGE ALL
PRECIPITATION TO SNOW THURSDAY NIGHT, WITH ACCUMULATING SNOW
POSSIBLE IN THE VALLEYS. THE SYSTEM WILL MOVE OUT BY LATE FRIDAY,
WITH SNOW ENDING.

THIS STORM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO GREATLY IMPACT CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY
TRAVEL OVER MOUNTAIN PASSES AND ALONG INTERSTATE 70 AND OTHER MAJOR
HIGHWAYS. PASSES MAY BECOME SNOWPACKED AND ICY WITH REDUCED
VISIBILITY ON CHRISTMAS DAY, FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT.
