FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR UTAH
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
405 AM MDT TUE MAY 24 2016

...CHANCE OF SHOWERS INCREASING NEXT FEW DAYS...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...A SERIES OF STORMS WILL CONTINUE THE
THREAT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK.
NORTHERN UTAH WILL SEE A GREATER COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
UNTIL AN ARRIVAL OF A MID WEEK STORM SYSTEM. GUSTY WINDS WILL
COMBINE WITH LOW RH ACROSS MUCH OF SOUTHERN UTAH TODAY.

.DISCUSSION...ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL FORM AGAIN
TODAY...WITH SOMEWHAT HIGHER COVERAGE OF SHOWERS ACROSS NORTHERN
UTAH. SHOWER ACTIVITY WILL GENERALLY INCREASE STATEWIDE ON
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY...AS A LARGER STORM SYSTEM PASSES THROUGH
THE REGION. AHEAD OF THIS STORM...SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL BECOME
GUSTY ACROSS THE SOUTHERN HALF OF UTAH TODAY...AND THEN AGAIN ON
WEDNESDAY WITH SOMEWHAT WEAKER SPEEDS. GENERALLY MOISTER AND COOLER
CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THURSDAY WITH THE PASSING OF THE STORM.

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