...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 moves through from west to east bringing another pulse of energy and moisture through the area. This second weather disturbance late Saturday and early Sunday is expected to produce rain...and 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 the mountains and possibly even higher valley locations due to accumulating snow and blowing snow. Stay tuned to this developing weather system for more details as the event becomes closer.
