This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered showers are likely across portions of eastern Utah and
western Colorado today, especially this afternoon. Precipitation
types will range from mainly rain or a rain/snow/graupel mix in
the lower elevations to mainly snow in the higher elevations.
Thunder is possible in any of the stronger showers. Later this
afternoon and evening, a strong cold front will bring much colder
air into the region. Ahead and along the front, a broken line of
intense showers will bring brief periods of heavy snow, especially
in the mountains. Thunder and lightning is also possible. Several
inches of accumulation is likely, especially in the eastern
Uintas and the central and northern Colorado mountains where
Winter Weather Advisories are in effect. Snow tapers off after
midnight, giving way to lighter snow showers along the Continental
Divide overnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Unsettled weather will continue through the weekend, and possibly
even into early next week, as lingering moisture and a series of
disturbances move though the region. Snow will favor the mountains
with accumulations possible each day. After a brief break Tuesday
and Wednesday, another larger storm arrives with more widespread
valley rain and mountain snow. Temperatures will continue to be
well below normal for late March.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
