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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Warm temperatures and increasing south winds are expected across
Utah today with gusts exceeding 60 mph in many western valleys. A
cold front will move into NW Utah late afternoon and work its way
across the area through tonight. Snow will develop tonight with up
to two inches on grassy surfaces across northern Utah and 1-4
inches in the central and northern mountains.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Snow will linger across northern Utah and southwest Wyoming
through most of Tuesday, while only isolated snow showers will
occur beyond midday across the south. Total accumulations of 2-5
inches is expected for most mountains with 6-10 inches in areas
favored by northwest flow. Much colder temperatures will trail the
cold front, with highs Tuesday running 15 to 25 degrees below
readings on Monday.

High pressure will return Wednesday ahead of the next Pacific
storm system scheduled to arrive for Thursday and Friday. This
storm will move slowly through the area and will bring colder
temperatures again to the outlook area. Most of the precipitation
with this next storm will be confined to southern, central, and
eastern Utah through Friday evening.


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