This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Expect a downturn in shower and thunderstorm activity today as
high pressure begins to build into the area from the west. Even
so, residual moisture will fuel scattered storms over mainly the
southern mountains this afternoon and evening. Subfreezing
temperatures are possible tonight/early Wednesday morning across
portions of the northwest Colorado valleys.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Lingering moisture will continue to fuel isolated to scattered
showers and storms over mostly the San Juan Mountains each
afternoon. Near to subfreezing temperatures continue to be
possible each morning in some northwest Colorado valleys. The
ridge begins to break down late in the week before the next system
starts to move into the region by the weekend, though confidence
on impacts remains low at this time.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
