FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR UTAH
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
333 AM MDT MON JUL 25 2016

...HOT WITH ISOLATED MOUNTAIN THUNDERSTORMS AS FAR NORTH AS I-80.
HAINES OF 6 IN FORECAST AREAS 1...2 AND 5 TODAY...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...HOT AND MAINLY DRY CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL
THROUGH TUESDAY ACROSS THE FAR NORTHWEST WHILE ISOLATED SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE IN THE AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS
OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND THE SOUTHERN AND EASTERN VALLEYS.

.DISCUSSION...SOME MID LEVEL MOISTURE WILL SQUIRT NORTHWARD UP
ALONG THE SPINE OF THE UTAH MOUNTAINS TODAY AS A WEAK DISTURBANCE
EJECTS NORTHEAST OUT OF THE WEST COAST TROUGH. THIS WILL BRING THE
THREAT OF ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS AS FAR NORTH AS THE CENTRAL
WASATCH MOUNTAINS AND UINTAS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. MEANWHILE
ENOUGH MOISTURE REMAINS OVER THE EASTERN AND SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF
THE AREA FOR CONTINUE ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TODAY AND
TUESDAY. A DRIER WESTERLY FLOW WILL SET IN WEDNESDAY IN THE WAKE
OF A WEAK TROUGH MOVING ACROSS THE NORTHERN ROCKIES. DRY
CONDITIONS AND HOT TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO PREVAIL WEDNESDAY
THROUGH THURSDAY BEFORE THE FLOW ALOFT RETURNS TO A MORE
SOUTHWESTERLY DIRECTION AND IMPORTS MAINLY MID AND HIGH LEVEL
MOISTURE INTO THE GREAT BASIN THIS WEEKEND WHICH WILL ELEVATE
CONCERNS FOR DRY THUNDERSTORMS.

***THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY STRONG GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS***
***ALL WINDS ARE 20 FOOT...10-MINUTE AVERAGES***
