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

LOW PRESSURE OVER THE SOUTHWEST UNITED STATES WILL KEEP A MOIST
SOUTHERLY FLOW OVER THE FORECAST AREA THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON.
SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL IS EXPECTED OVER MAINLY THE SOUTHERN MOUNTAINS
OF THE FORECAST AREA FROM THIS SYSTEM, WITH LESS PRECIPITATION
ACROSS THE NORTH. PRECIPITATION WILL BE RAIN IN THE LOWER VALLEYS
WITH MOUNTAIN SNOW EXPECTED. SOME AREAS MAY SEE A MIX OF RAIN AND
SNOW. THIS PATTERN WILL PERSIST THROUGH MOST OF THE DAY, BEFORE

AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO BE FAIRLY MILD WITH ABOVE
NORMAL READINGS TODAY INTO NEXT WEEK. AN UNSETTLED NORTHWEST FLOW
WILL SET UP ACROSS THE NORTH BRINGING PERIODS OF SNOW TO THE
NORTHERN MOUNTAINS, WHILE THE REST OF THE FORECAST AREA REMAINS DRY
HEADING INTO NEXT WEEK.
