347 PM MDT FRI AUG 22 2014

...COOL..WET WEATHER THIS WEEKEND...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL
CONTINUE ACROSS NORTHERN UTAH INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. ACROSS
CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN UTAH...PRECIPITATION WILL DEVELOP OVERNIGHT
AND CONTINUE INTO TOMORROW...TAPERING OFF TOMORROW AFTERNOON.
BY TOMORROW AFTERNOON...MOST OF THE STATE...WITH THE EXCEPTION
OF SOUTHERN WILL HAVE SEEN WETTING RAIN.

.DISCUSSION...A COLD FRONT MOVING THROUGH THE STATE WILL BRING
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO NORTHERN UTAH THIS EVENING AND
CENTRAL AND PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN UTAH OVERNIGHT. PRECIPITATION
WILL CONTINUE INTO TOMORROW MORNING...AND WILL TAPER OFF TOMORROW
AFTERNOON. WETTING RAIN WILL BE WIDESPREAD...AND BY TOMORROW
AFTERNOON MOST OF THE STATE...WITH THE EXCEPTION OF EXTREME
SOUTHERN UTAH...WILL HAVE SEEN WETTING RAIN. TOMORROW WILL BE
COOL...WITH TEMPERATURES WELL BELOW NORMAL. TEMPERATURES WILL
REMAIN COOL THROUGH THE WEEKEND. ANOTHER DISTURBANCE WILL CROSS
NORTHERN UTAH MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY...BRINGING ANOTHER
