This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the western two thirds of
Utah and southwest Wyoming.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Rain and high elevation snow showers will develop across the
northern outlook area late tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

A cold front will bring valley rain and mountain snow to all but
eastern portions of the outlook area today. Thunderstorms will be
possible along this front as well.

Snow levels will fall to the valley floors this evening across
west central and southwest Utah with accumulating snow expected.
Winter driving conditions can be expected across all mountain
routes across the outlook area, as well as along the I-15
corridor south of Provo tonight.

Strong, gusty southwest winds are expected across far southern
Utah this afternoon and evening. Strong northwest winds are
expected across the northwest deserts late this afternoon through
tonight, with strong cross winds possible along I-80 across the
Salt Flats.

Snow will continue across the higher terrain of the outlook area
Friday through Friday night, as well as the valleys of west
central and southwest Utah above 4000 feet. Travel will likely be
impacted at times.

Dry weather is expected for the weekend, with the next Pacific
storm system expected to move into the outlook area Monday. This
will bring the potential for additional accumulating snow to the
mountains, and mixed rain and snow for the valleys.


Weather spotters are encouraged to report significant weather
conditions according to standard operating procedures.
