... Widespread precipitation and strong winds this weekend...

A strong late season wintry storm will bring strong winds and
widespread showers to the region this weekend. Southwest winds
will become gusty Friday into Saturday. Moisture increases over
the forecast area Friday night into Saturday. Colder unsettled air
on Saturday brings increasing showers with late-day thunderstorms
possible. Snow accumulations are possible in the higher
mountains.

Snow levels plummet Saturday evening when a strong cold front
sweeps through the region. There is the potential for heavy snow
in the mountains with accumulation into the higher valleys. Snow
showers may linger in the Colorado mountains and high valleys
into Monday.

Travel this weekend may become difficult through the mountains
and possibly even higher valley locations due to accumulating snow
and blowing snow. Monitor the latest forecasts on this developing
weather system at our website www.Weather.Gov/gjt.

... Widespread precipitation and wind expected this weekend...

A two-part late season winter storm will reach eastern Utah early
Saturday morning and spread precipitation east into western
Colorado during the day Saturday. Erratic winds... rain in the
valleys... and snow accumulation at about 9000 feet and higher is
expected.

Snow levels will lower Saturday night when a strong cold front

accumulating snow potentially as low as 5500 feet. Isolated
thunderstorms are also possible with this cold front.

Travel this weekend is anticipated to become difficult through
