.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OVER THE AREA WEDNESDAY AND
REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.

&&

.DISCUSSION...UTAH REMAINS UNDER A NORTHWEST FLOW THIS
EVENING...WITH MOIST WARM ADVECTION OCCURRING ACROSS THE NORTHERN
PORTIONS. ALTHOUGH A FEW VALLEY RAIN AND MOUNTAIN SNOW SHOWERS ARE
STILL PRESENT...THESE HAVE DECREASED IN COVERAGE AND INTENSITY OVER
THE PAST COUPLE OF HOURS. THE DOWNWARD TREND IN PRECIPITATION WILL
CONTINUE THROUGH THE NIGHT AS THE UPPER JET CONTINUES TO PULL AWAY
AND HIGH PRESSURE SETTLES INTO THE AREA. WINDS REMAIN ELEVATED ON
THE HIGHER PEAKS...AND SHOULD REMAIN RATHER GUSTY THROUGH THE NIGHT.
HOWEVER...THE TREND SHOULD POINT DOWNWARD AS WELL. WINTER WEATHER
AND WIND HIGHLIGHTS WERE EXPIRED/CANCELLED EARLIER THIS EVENING AS
ANY ADDITIONAL IMPACTS WILL BE MINOR.

UPDATED FORECAST TO ADJUST WINDS...LOWER POPS...AND MAKE MINOR
TWEAKS TO OVERNIGHT MINS.

PRIMARY OPERATIONAL CONCERN AT THE KSLC TERMINAL TONIGHT. EXPECT
THESE CIGS TO CONTINUE THROUGH 07-09Z...WITH A 30 PERCENT CHANCE
THEY PERSIST THROUGH THE NIGHT. OTHERWISE...SOUTHERLY SURFACE WINDS
ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE VALID TAF PERIOD.
