Expires 5:15 PM EDT on August 27, 2014


... Wet weather continues today with High Mountain snow possible...

An unseasonably cold low pressure system will be passing across
eastern Utah and western Colorado today. Moisture wrapping around
this low pressure system will bring widespread showers and
thunderstorms with locally heavy rain possible. Rainfall amounts
approaching an inch will be possible in some areas of northeast
Utah and northwest Colorado by late this afternoon.

Over the higher mountains... colder air filtering into the region
will allow the rain to flip over to snow at elevations above 12000
feet. The best chance for snow will be this morning... before
temperatures moderate and any snow changes back over to rain.

This fall-like system will be exiting the region tonight with
drier and warmer weather moving back in as the weekend approaches.
Anyone headed up into the high country today should be prepared
for cool and wet conditions... along with the possibility of
encountering some wet snow. For the latest information on this
storm visit our web site at weather.Gov/gjt or follow US on
