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

THE FORECAST AREA WILL EXPERIENCE A BREAK FROM THE WINTER WEATHER
TODAY, 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 LATE
THURSDAY AFTERNOON INTO THURSDAY NIGHT, WITH ACCUMULATING SNOW
POSSIBLE IN THE VALLEYS. THE SYSTEM WILL MOVE OUT BY LATE FRIDAY,
WITH SNOW COMING TO AN END.

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.
