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 THROUGH THURSDAY. SNOW WILL FAVOR THE
CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN MOUNTAINS INTO THE NIGHT, WITH ABOUT 6 INCHES
OF SNOW IN THE HIGHER MOUNTAINS. SNOW WILL LINGER THROUGH THURSDAY
AS THE SYSTEM EXITS THE REGION, BUT ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO BE
FAIRLY LIGHT FOR MOST AREAS. 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.
