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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow will continue to impact northwest Colorado mountains and
valleys as well as the central Colorado mountains including Rabbit
Ears and Vail Passes through late this afternoon with heavier snow
expected across the northern mountains. Snowfall rates lessen this
evening as the frontal boundary lifts northward with light snow
continuing on and off again across the north overnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Snowfall rates pick up again Sunday morning through Monday evening
as another round of moisture impacts the region, with the
northwest Colorado mountains and valleys favored again for higher
snow amounts. Focus for snow will shift into the central and
southern portions of the CWA late Monday into Tuesday as the storm
system shifts southward and tracks across the area. Drier weather
returns mid to late week as high pressure moves in behind the
departing storm system.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
