The National Weather Service in Denver issued the warning, which is in effect from 6 p.m. today until noon Thursday. A cold front is expected to move into Utah today and across Colorado tonight, according to the Weather Service. Rain and thunderstorms will change to snow early this evening and become widespread. The snow may be heavy at times, and total snow accumulations of 4 to 10 inches can be expected above 9,000 feet.
