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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered light showers across extreme southwest Utah will
increase in areal coverage and intensity this morning. This
precipitation will spread north through the mountains and western
valleys later today, then continue across mainly Utah and
southwest wyoming tonight.

Snow levels will remain high enough that the valley will remain in
rain through this evening. Accumulating snows are anticipated for
the mountains, with travel impacts confined to the highest passes
of central and southern Utah.

Gusty south winds will develop this morning across the mountains
and western valleys. These winds will remain elevated through

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Areas of valley rain and mountain snow will continue throughout
the weekend. The heaviest precipitation will concentrate across
southern and central Utah Saturday. Accumulating snows will
remain at the higher elevations, with several inches of
accumulation possible in the southern mountains.

For Sunday precipitation will become more widespread and heavier
as the main upper level trough moves east through the region.
Significant accumulations of snow are expected in the mountains.
Temperatures will cool enough that rain may mix with snow in the
higher valleys by Sunday evening through early Monday.

High pressure aloft will bring an end to most precipitation on
Monday. Passing weather disturbances could bring periods of light
precipitation to far northern Utah Monday night and Tuesday.

A new round of widespread and potentially heavy precipitation will
return to the outlook area midweek. This next series of storms
will be much colder, with snow likely in the valleys as well as
the mountains Wednesday and Thursday.


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