This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The next winter storm will drop across northern Colorado and Utah,
bringing much colder air, gusty conditions, and snow focused over
the central and northern mountains today and tonight. Snow and
blowing snow will bring travel impacts for higher elevations
above 9,000 feet due to reduced visibility and icy, snow packed
road conditions. Wind chills will also drop as low as 20 below
zero across higher terrain and exposed peaks.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Cold air advecting across the region will drop high temperatures
5 to 10 degrees on Tuesday across eastern Utah and western
Colorado. Mountain snow showers will taper off Tuesday afternoon
as the system exits to our east and dry air quickly moves in from
the west. Clearing skies overnight will also bring cold overnight
lows Tuesday night into Wednesday. High pressure then returns by
late week with a warming trend expected.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
