This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow falling over a large portion of western Colorado today will
bring travel impacts in the higher elevations as slushy to snow
packed conditions develop. Snow in the valley locations could
create some temporary slushy conditions this morning but should
melt through the day with a mix of clouds and filtered sunshine
expected. This storm exits the area early tonight but another
much colder storm arrives after midnight and will begin to spread
snow over the far northern mountains by sunrise.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Much colder air and fluffy snow will drop across northern Colorado
and Utah on Monday with the focus on the central and northern
Colorado mountain through Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures in the
teens to single digits will be moving to the high country by
Tuesday. Low temperatures could be very cold with double digit
readings below zero in the favored valleys and basins of the
region. High pressure then returns by late week with a warming
trend expected.


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