...SIGNIFICANT SNOW POSSIBLE THIS WEEKEND...

A ROBUST PACIFIC STORM MOVES INLAND TODAY THEN ACROSS EASTERN
UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO OVER THE WEEKEND. THIS STORM HAS THE
POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE SIGNIFICANT MOUNTAIN SNOWFALL...WITH RAIN OR
A RAIN SNOW MIX IN THE VALLEYS.

SATURDAY...MOUNTAIN SNOW AND VALLEY RAIN WILL SPREAD ACROSS THE
REGION AS THE STORM APPROACHES. SATURDAY NIGHT APPEARS TO BE PRIME
TIME FOR SNOW AS THE STORM PASSES. SUNDAY...SNOW WILL BE ENDING
ACROSS SOUTHWEST COLORADO...BUT OCCASIONAL LIGHT SNOW WILL
CONTINUE OVER NORTHWEST COLORADO AND THE MOUNTAINS OF WEST CENTRAL
COLORADO.

SOME HIGHER VALLEYS IN COLORADO COULD ALSO SEE SNOW ACCUMULATIONS
SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY MORNING. TRAVEL ACROSS THE HIGH COUNTRY
OF NORTHEAST UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO IS EXPECTED TO BE DIFFICULT
THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
