This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Winter weather has returned bringing snowfall to much of eastern
Utah and western Colorado. Snow will continue today and focus on
the central mountains and southern mountains and valleys. Numerous
winter weather highlights are in effect through this morning and
into the evening hours. Expect hazardous travel conditions over
mountain passes in the same areas while southern valleys will also
see impacts to travel. Conditions will slowly start improving from
northwest to southeast towards the evening hours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

A few showers will continue for the mountains but accumulation
will be on the light side. The jet stream then shifts to the north
keeping any precipitation in that area too. Sunny skies are
expected through the weekend and into Monday. A few more clouds up
north but shouldn`t detract from the sunny skies. Temperatures
will reach normal if not a little above for the weekend.


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