This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Clouds will increase from the west today with breezy conditions
as lower valleys gust in the 20s with gusts in the 30s for
southeast Utah. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms
will develop by late afternoon over the higher terrain, spreading
into western Colorado and some valleys by evening. Gusty outflow
winds will be the primary concern with some stronger gusts up to
40 mph and potential for small hail across northeast Utah.
However, the potential for stronger outflow winds exists over
northeast Utah where one or two cells could produce gusts to 60
MPH. Small hail is also possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Showers and thunderstorms will become more widespread Thursday
with cooler air and snow in the mountains. Snow amounts of 3 to 6
inches are possible in the higher terrain, mainly above 10,000
feet MSL. The cold front and disturbance will move through the
area Thursday evening.

A break will occur Friday through Saturday, with another trough
of low pressure potentially bringing unsettled weather Saturday
evening through Sunday. Dry conditions resume for the early part
of next week.


Spotter activation is not expected today or tonight, however
spotters in northeast Utah are encouraged to report excessive
wind or any observed wind related damage to the National Weather
Service in Grand Junction.
