…TURNING MUCH COLDER SUNDAY WITH SNOW POSSIBLE…

A strong Pacific storm system will be moving into the Great Basin

tonight and Saturday. Expect warm and windy weather out ahead of

this system with southwest winds gusting to between 40 and 50 mph

at times.

This storm will start moving eastward Saturday night and is

expected to move across Eastern Utah and Western Colorado on

Sunday. Expect an abrupt wind shift on Sunday as the associated

cold front sweeps through with temperatures dropping 15 to 20

degrees during the day on Sunday. High temperatures may actually

occur during the morning hours on Sunday with temperatures

steadily dropping through the day.

In addition to the sudden drop in temperatures, expect widespread

showers and possibly a few thunderstorms to move through the

region. Snow levels will rapidly drop to the valley floors behind

the cold front with light accumulations possible. Heavier snowfall

amounts may occur over the mountains with up to 10 inches not out

of the question by late Sunday night.

Anyone planning travel across Eastern Utah or Western Colorado

should expect strong and erratic wind gusts with possible

crosswinds along Interstate 70 and Highway 40 this afternoon and

again on Saturday. Concerns then shift to rapidly dropping

temperatures and the potential for moderate to heavy snow over the

mountains on Sunday. Stay tuned to your favorite media outlet or

visit our homepage at weather.gov/gjt for the latest information

on this potent spring storm.
