...GOOD WETTING RAIN POTENTIAL NEXT 24 HOURS...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND STORMS
WILL CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS...ESPECIALLY ACROSS NORTHERN
PORTIONS. WETTING RAIN POTENTIAL AND SURFACE HUMIDITY VALUES
WILL REMAIN QUITE HIGH FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR.

.DISCUSSION...DEEP MOISTURE HAS SPREAD ACROSS THE ENTIRE DISTRICT

HOURS...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE FAR NORTH. SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS
SHOWERS AND STORMS HAVE DEVELOPED ACROSS THE DISTRICT THIS
AFTERNOON...WITH FOCUSED ACTIVITY ACROSS CENTRAL UTAH AND MOVING
NORTH TO NORTHWEST AT THIS TIME.

SHOWER AND STORM ACTIVITY WILL TREND TO DISSIPATE SOUTH TO NORTH
TONIGHT BUT EXPECTING CONTINUED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED STORMS TO
CONTINUE ACROSS THE NORTH AS AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL PARK
NEARLY STATIONARY THERE. MINIMAL DRYING IS EXPECTED TOMORROW BUT
SHOWER AND STORM ACTIVITY SHOULD BE A LITTLE LESS THAN TODAY.
HUMIDITY WILL REMAIN VERY ELEVATED FOR THE NEXT 36 HOURS AND
ELEVATED WETTING RAIN POTENTIAL WILL CONTINUE.

A DRYING TREND WILL SPREAD NORTH WEDNESDAY BUT SUFFICIENT
MOISTURE WILL REMAIN ACROSS THE REGION FOR AFTERNOON AND EVENING
MOUNTAIN THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK.
WETTING RAIN POTENTIAL WILL BE ON THE DECREASE HOWEVER.
