COLORADO (NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE) – A strong cold front will be sweeping across the Pacific Northwest early this week.

The following areas affected include La Plata and Montezuma counties.

The front will is expected to move through the Great basin Wednesday then across eastern Utah and western Colorado on Thursday. Sharply colder temperatures are expected behind the front with daytime highs in the 30s and 40s for eastern Utah and western Colorado Thursday and Friday.

Overnight lows Thursday night and again Friday night will drop into the teens and 20s for most lower valley locations with single digit temperatures expected for the mountains and high Valleys.

Enough moisture accompanies this system that a cold rain changing to snow may occur over the lower valleys with snow expected in the high country. Moderate snow accumulations are possible across the flat tops park and gore mountains and near Vail pass.

There is still uncertainty as to the exact track and timing of this storm and the forecast should evolve over the next few days.
