Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
934 PM MDT Wed Jul 26 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Monsoonal moisture will remain in place across the
region through Thursday. A slight drying trend is expected through
at least the first part of the weekend for much of the area while
deeper moisture remains over southeast Utah.

&&

.DISCUSSION...A southwesterly flow aloft remains in place across the
area this evening with PWATs remaining in the 1.0-1.2 inch range
across much of the area. Currently, a shortwave disturbance is
lifting across northeast Nevada and northwest Utah. Bulk effective
shear in the 20-30kt range are helping to support more organized
storms across portions of northern Utah this evening and looks like
thunderstorms could continue past midnight. Elsewhere, storms across
southern Utah are weakening and should mostly wind down by midnight.

&&

.AVIATION...Thunderstorms will be likely at the SLC terminal
producing strong gusty westerly winds MVFR or even IFR conditions
through 04-05z. After that, there will be a 20 percent chance of
showers and thunderstorms for the rest of the night. Winds outside
of thunderstorms are expected to return more to a southerly
direction by 06-07z with improving cigs.

&&

.SLC WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
UT...None.
WY...None.
