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

COOL AND UNSETTLED WEATHER WILL CONTINUE TODAY AS THE UPPER LEVEL
TROUGH AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT PUSHES FROM NORTH TO SOUTH ACROSS
THE FORECAST AREA.  PERIODS OF HEAVY PRECIPITATION WILL OCCUR ALONG
THIS FRONT WITH ANOTHER ROUND OF SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL FOR THE
MOUNTAINS AND SOME HIGHER VALLEYS.  PRECIPITATION WILL FOR THE MOST
PART COME TO AN END BY SUNDAY MORNING WITH SOME SNOW SHOWERS
LINGERING OVER THE NORTH-FACING SLOPES OF THE SOUTHERN MOUNTAINS.

A COLD AND DRY ARCTIC AIR MASS WILL MOVE IN QUICKLY BEHIND THE COLD
FRONT, PROVIDING SOME OF THE COLDEST MINIMUM TEMPERATURES SO FAR
THIS SEASON FOR SUNDAY AND MONDAY MORNING.  TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN
WELL BELOW NORMAL FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE WORK WEEK AS THE
FORECAST AREA REMAINS UNDER A COLD NORTHWESTERLY FLOW WITH DRY
CONDITIONS. HIGH PRESSURE MOVES IN FROM THE WEST ON WEDNESDAY WITH A
GRADUAL WARMUP AND MORE UNSETTLED WEATHER POSSIBLE FOR THE LATTER
HALF OF THE WEEK.
