A change in the weather is expected for the second half of the work
week as a series of weather disturbances bring a return of active
weather to the area. This prolonged winter weather event will
bring heavy snow to the mountains, especially those with west
southwesterly facing aspects. In addition to the mountain snows
the lower elevations will also experience periods of moderate
snowfall throughout the second half of the work week into the
weekend. These potentially significant snow events may result in
dangerous driving conditions with snow packed and icy road
conditons,especially over the mountain passes. Please check the
forecast frequently for updates and also check road conditions via
CDOT and UDOT`s web pages.
