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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Rain showers will become more widespread across northern Utah and
southwest Wyoming late this afternoon and locally heavy during
the evening hours. Ponding of water on roadways will be possible,
causing travel impacts. In addition, the heavy rain is expected
to cause area rivers and streams to rise. Accumulating snowfall
is also expected, mainly above 8000-8500 feet this evening and
lingering overnight.

Southwest winds will continue to gust to 40 mph across
southwestern and south central Utah through the early evening
hours. There is also a potential for stronger winds as a cold
front crosses western and central Utah locations late this
afternoon into the early evening with the small potential for
strong or severe thunderstorms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

The next colder storm is expected Thursday afternoon into early
Friday. Snow levels will drop from around 8000 feet Thursday
afternoon to near 6500 feet Thursday evening.


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