This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A weather disturbance crossing the region today will bring
widespread snow showers this morning. Precipitation will work its
way west to east, favoring the Elkhead and Park Ranges for highest
snow accumulation. Conditions will improve early afternoon across
eastern Utah, as dry northwest flow pushes the system east of the
Divide. Light, orographically driven showers will linger across
the northern mountains tonight. Otherwise, expect dry conditions
elsewhere. Fog and low stratus may redevelop tonight across
northeast Utah and northwest Colorado valleys, as well as east-
central Utah into west-central Colorado.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Dry conditions will last through Tuesday before another system
works its way into the region by Wednesday morning. Additional
snow will be light, where 1 to 3 inches are possible over higher
terrain and locally higher amounts up to 5 inches are expected
along the Divide. High pressure moves back for the end of the week
with above normal temperatures likely for the weekend.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
