... Changing weather this weekend will bring wind and mountain snow...

A cold Pacific storm system will move inland tonight and across the
Great Basin this weekend... splitting into two parts as it does so.
This will lead to a variety of weather this weekend... including
wind... valley rain and mountain snow at various times through Sunday
night.

Expect windy but still mild conditions on Saturday as the main part
of this storm system remains to the west. Gusts of 30 to 40 mph are
anticipated... especially in the valleys of southeastern Utah and
northwestern Colorado and exposed mountain areas. Scattered showers
and an isolated thunderstorm or two are also expected.

Colder air arrives late Saturday night and Sunday with an increasing
chance of rain and mountain snow. The best snow accumulations are
currently expected over the mountains Sunday night as the southern
part of the storm approaches. Snow levels will lower to between 7000
and 8000 feet with the arrival of the cold air. Above 9000 feet... 3
to 6 inches of new snow will possible... with locally higher amounts
measured in a few locations by Monday morning.

On Monday... colder and unsettled conditions keep a chance of rain or
snow showers in the forecast during the day... with improving
conditions expected through the evening.

This is a complicated storm with uncertainty in both timing and
precipitation type... both of which will affect where the greatest
snow will occur. If traveling... recreating or hunting in the
mountains this weekend... be sure to check the latest forecasts.
