This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered to isolated snow showers will continue over much of the
region today. Brief moderate to heavy showers will quickly drop
visibilities to less than a mile at times. Roadways may also
quickly become icy to snow packed under these intense showers. In
prolonged areas under the showers several inches of snow are
likely to accumulate, otherwise only light amounts will fall over
the next 24 hours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

A brief break will arrive by early Saturday, although snow showers
will once again increase in coverage and intensity by Saturday
afternoon. Unsettled conditions will persist through early next
week as we remain in a favored storm track. Mountain snow is
likely to lead to travel impacts through this time.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not expected today or tonight, however
spotters are encouraged to report snowfall amounts to the
National Weather Service in Grand Junction.
