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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A Pacific system will drop into the region from the northwest this
afternoon resulting in scattered rain and snow showers across the
region. Activity will favor the mountains of western Colorado with
5 to 10 inches possible across the northwest ranges and 4 to 8
inches for the Northwest San Juan Mountains through Tuesday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Showers will begin to taper off Tuesday afternoon with generally
dry conditions expected Tuesday night. A weak system will track
across southwest Colorado on Wednesday resulting in an uptick in
shower activity. A stronger, colder system will impact the region
Thursday and Friday resulting in cooler temperatures, widespread
precipitation and potential significant snow for the mountains. In
the wake of the late week system, drier weather looks to return
for the weekend.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not expected today or tonight, however
spotters are encouraged to report snowfall amounts to the
National Weather Service in Grand Junction.
