FOR EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO, HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER
SYNOPSIS.

A WEAK AREA OF LOW PRESSURE MOVING IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST, ALONG WITH
AFTERNOON HEATING, WILL RESULT IN SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TODAY, MAINLY THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.  MOST
ACTIVITY WILL SUBSIDE NOT LONG AFTER SUNSET, THOUGH SHOWERS WILL
PERSIST OVER THE EASTERN UINTA MOUNTAINS THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT.
TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL CONTINUE AT NEAR TO ABOVE SEASONAL.

PRECIPITATION CHANCES WILL INCREASE AND TEMPERATURES WILL COOL
ACROSS MUCH OF THE REGION FOR THE WEEKEND, AS A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM
AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT PUSHES IN FROM THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. THIS
SYSTEM IS STRONGER AND COLDER THAN THE PREVIOUS LOW, SO EXPECT
WIDESPREAD RAIN, SOMETIMES HEAVY, TO OCCUR SATURDAY NIGHT AND
SUNDAY. ACCUMULATING SNOW WILL GENERALLY BE CONFINED TO AREAS ABOVE
9000 FEET.
