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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Periods of snow, heavy at times, will continue through this
evening in the high country. Significant snowfall accumulations
are expected above 9000 feet across western Colorado. Snow will
decrease, but not entirely end, along the Continental Divide
tonight. Accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are expected above 9000
feet with locally higher amounts possible. In addition, isolated
to scattered thunderstorms are possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

A series of disturbances will bring additional mountain snow to
the region through Saturday. Accumulations may warrant another
round of Winter Weather Advisories. In addition, unseasonably cold
temperatures are expected which may yield a hard freeze in the
lower valleys where tender vegetation has budded out.

.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.
