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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Very strong southerly winds will continue through late this
evening, mainly across the Salt Lake and Tooele Valleys and the
salt flats.

Precipitation will increase again overnight. While valleys will
see predominantly rain, falling snow levels will cause
accumulating snow over the mountains. This snow could cause local
travel impacts over the Wasatch Range late tonight.

Areas rivers in southern Utah are expected see rises due to heavy
rainfall. River flooding is not expected at this time. However,
flash flood prone areas of southern Utah could see localized flash
flooding through the overnight hours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Moderate to locally heavy valley rain and mountain snow will
continue along a cold front over northern Utah early Friday.
Widespread showers will also continue across southern Utah, with
the heaviest precipitation heading into the Lake Powell area
during the morning. The areal extent of precipitation will
decrease during the day with only a few light showers remaining by
early Friday evening.

The next storm system will bring colder air to northern Utah over
the weekend, with a few of the higher valleys and mountains
receiving accumulating snows. Precipitation will shift south into
southern and central Utah early next week, then end across the
entire outlook area by Wednesday.


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