This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A wind advisory is in effect today and early this evening for
northwest and west-central Colorado and southeast and east-central
Utah. The strongest winds are expected across areas north of I-70
with the peak gusts up to 45 mph at lower elevations and 60 mph at
higher elevations. Travel may be difficult, especially for high
profile vehicles.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Breezy to windy conditions will persist into the late week period
under the continued influence of the strong upper level
disturbance. A return to more unsettled weather as well as a
significant cool down is looking probable by late this week as a
cold front treks through the region which should lead to snow
levels lowering in the mountains going into the weekend,
especially further north.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
