This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the western two thirds of
Utah and southwest Wyoming.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Low pressure advancing toward southwest Utah will bring showers
into extreme southwest Utah this afternoon. Showers will expand
across southern Utah and then north through west-central Utah
overnight. Isolated thunderstorms will be possible late this
afternoon through this evening.

Precipitation will turn heavier tonight as the low pressure system
moves into extreme southern Nevada. Colder air with this low will
drive snow levels down with some snow developing through the
higher southwest valleys by late tonight. Several inches of snow
accumulation will be possible for the southern mountains tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

A band of rain and snow will move north into northern Utah and
southwest Wyoming Thursday. Minor accumulations are expected for
the northern mountains, with rain or brief periods of rain and
snow mixed possible in the valley locations underneath the
precipitation band. Areas of central and southern Utah will
continue to see showers and cool temperatures through Thursday

Drier conditions will move into the outlook area as the low
pressure system exits the area Friday. A weak weather disturbance
will graze the northern portion of the outlook area late
Saturday, bringing cooler temperatures and light precipitation to
northern Utah and southwest Wyoming Saturday night through early
Sunday. Lingering mountain showers and below normal temperatures
are expected to begin the new week.


Spotter activation may be needed. Please relay any information
about observed severe weather to the NWS while following all
local, state, and CDC guidelines.
