... Widespread precipitation and strong winds this weekend...

A strong late season wintry storm will bring strong winds and
widespread showers to the region this weekend. Southwest winds
will become gusty Friday into Saturday. Moisture increases over
the forecast area Friday night into Saturday. Colder unsettled air
on Saturday brings increasing showers with late-day thunderstorms
possible. Snow accumulations are possible in the higher
mountains.

Snow levels plummet Saturday evening when a strong cold front
sweeps through the region. There is the potential for heavy snow
in the mountains with accumulation into the higher valleys. Snow
showers may linger in the Colorado mountains and high valleys
into Monday.

Travel this weekend may become difficult through the mountains
and possibly even higher valley locations due to accumulating snow
and blowing snow. Monitor the latest forecasts on this developing
weather system at our website www.Weather.Gov/gjt.
