No hazardous weather is expected through tonight.

South winds ahead of a cold front will start to pick up across
the western valleys Thursday afternoon and could become locally
strong in the southwestern valleys Friday afternoon.

This strong cold front will slowly cross the outlook area from
north to south Friday through midday Saturday. Heavy snow will
accompany the cold front with significant snow accumulation in
the mountains and valleys. Even Utahs Dixie may see some snow
with this storm Saturday morning. Locally heavy snow showers will
continue across the outlook area through Saturday night.

Persons planning travel anywhere in the outlook area Friday
through early Sunday should be prepared for winter driving
conditions in snow, and allow for plenty of extra time to reach
their destinations.

There is the potential for some additional snow across the
northern outlook area early Monday and again early Tuesday.


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