.DISCUSSION...MOISTURE WORKING AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE UPPER
LEVEL RIDGE OVER THE UTAH/ARIZONA BORDER WILL BRING ANOTHER ROUND OF
SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS TO SOUTHWEST UTAH THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING.
EARLY CUMULUS BUILDUPS WILL BRING THE CHANCE OF LIGHT SHOWERS TO THE

MID-AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY EVENING. WETTING RAINS LOOK TO BE
SPOTTY AT BEST ACROSS SOUTHWEST UTAH. MAIN CONCERN WILL LIKELY
REMAIN GUSTY AND ERRATIC WIND AND LIGHTNING THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING.

A CONTINUED INCREASE IN MOISTURE THIS WEEKEND WILL ENHANCE THE CHANCES
FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...ALONG WITH THE CHANCE OF WETTING RAINS.

HUMIDITY LEVELS. STILL SOME CONCERN FOR GUSTY/ERRATIC THUNDERSTORMS
WINDS WITH EARLY SATURDAY STORMS. THIS THREAT WILL DIMINISH AS
