Dry and warm conditions will continue across eastern Utah and western Colorado through Tuesday. By Wednesday...the first sign of a changing weather pattern will arrive as moisture from Tropical Storm Simon works north into the Four Corners. This moisture will continue drifting north encompassing much of western Colorado by Thursday. This will bring an increasing chance for showers and thunderstorms along with slightly cooler temperatures. Drier conditions are then expected to move back in over the weekend. (Please visit http://weather.gov/gjt for more information.)

Fantastic Fall weather continues with nice, warm days and cool nights. Sunny skies will remain in place for the next several days. If you get the chance, get out and enjoy the beautiful scenery western Colorado and eastern Utah has to offer. Before you know it Winter will be upon us!

Showers and isolated thunderstorms will gradually dissipate overnight with mountain snow also ending, although an inch or two of additional snow accumulation is still possible above 8000-9000 feet. Cold temperatures are also expected overnight with a freeze warning in effect for some of the higher valleys, see www.weather.gov/gjt for the latest. A drying and warming trend begins on Thursday lasting into next week. (Please visit http://weather.gov/gjt for more information.)

Showers will increase this morning and become more numerous this afternoon ahead of a cold front that is expected to move through the region today. Expect numerous showers with scattered thunderstorms today. Snow will occur in the mountains with 3 to 6 inches accumulation above 9000 feet and rain below that. Below freezing temperatures will occur Thursday morning behind the cold front for many higher valley locations. A dry and warming trend is in store for Thursday and beyond into early next week as high pressure builds to the west. Below normal temperatures today will warm up to near or slightly above seasonal levels by the weekend. (Please visit http://weather.gov/gjt for more information.)

The forecast area will be under the influence of a northwesterly flow in the wake of a departing low pressure system that brought significant weather to the area the last few days. This will result in an unsettled flow with partly sunny skies in most areas. Showers and storms will occur this afternoon and evening mainly for areas north of I-70. More widespread shower and thunderstorm activity will occur on Wednesday as another trough of low pressure with associated cold front move through the area. Expect brief heavy rain, some hail and strong gusty winds with storms mainly ahead of and along the cold front. Snow is expected in the mountain areas with a few inches possible. Temperatures will be cooler in the cold front's wake on Thursday morning with some valley locations having the potential for below freezing temperatures. A dry and warming trend is in store Thursday into the weekend and possibly into early next week as high pressure builds over the region leading! to temperatures rising to near or slightly above seasonal levels. (Please visit http://weather.gov/gjt for more information.)

A large area of low pressure over the Great Basin will continue to spin with energy rotating around it, generating another round of showers and thunderstorms. Expect the best activity this afternoon and evening with heavy rain, hail and gusty winds expected from storms. Snow is possible above 10,000 feet with convection possibly driving snow levels a little lower than that. Flooding is also possible in areas where the ground remains saturated from recent heavy rains from the last 24 to 36 hours. This low pressure system will eject north and east out of the region tonight with an unsettled westerly flow remaining in place. The weather will remain unsettled through Wednesday as another disturbance moves through the area both Tuesday and Wednesday with more storms and snow possible over some mountain areas and higher northern valleys on Wednesday. Temperatures will remain cooler with below normal readings but should warm back up to near to slightly above seasonal towar! ds the end of the week into the weekend as high pressure brings drier air. (Please visit http://weather.gov/gjt for more information.)

Periods of showers and thunderstorms will continue today with locally heavy rain increasing the potential for flash flooding/debris flows. A few strong storms containing hail and gusty winds may also develop mainly this afternoon. Although steady rains will end later today, a chance of showers/storms will continue into Monday. Temperatures will be at below seasonal levels the next few days with some light snow possible for the higher peaks. (Please visit http://weather.gov/gjt for more information.)

Showers and thunderstorms will continue to increase across the region late this afternoon and evening. Gusty winds to 50 mph and hail up to 1/2 inch in diameter will be possible near the stronger storms. In addition, heavy rain can be expected...leading to potential runoff problems, especially near slots canyons and steep terrain. Storms will be moving north-northwest at 25 to 30 mph through 7 pm MDT this evening. A Flash Flood WATCH is in effect for eastern Utah and portions of western Colorado through Sunday.
