SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...MAIN BIG PICTURE ITEMS WERE LOW TO MID
LEVEL CIRCULATION NEAR THE GREAT SALT LAKE SEEN BEST WITH VIS AND ENHANCED
WARM CLOUD IR LOOP.  WEAK SHORT WAVE TROUGH ON EAST SIDE LIFTING NORTH
INTO N CENTRAL TO E CENTRAL UT.   CLUSTER OF CONVECTIVE CELL FROM JUST
EAST OF THE CIRCULATION CENTER TO WSW ACROSS TOOELE COUNTY INTO EASTERN
ELKO COUNTY NV WAS PRODUCING SOME ISOLATED HIGHER RATES THAT COULD REACH
1"/30-60 MINUTES.  FURTHER SOUTH...SUBTROPICAL PV CENTER HAS HAD A HISTORY
OF NOT MUCH IF ANY CONVECTION NEAR AND SOUTH OF THE CENTER AS IT HAS
DRIFTED NORTH/NE PAST 48HRS FROM BAJA.  APPEARS LIKE IT HAS CONTRIBUTED
TO STABILIZING THE ATMOSPHERE AND AT LEAST DRYING OUT THE LOW TO MID
LEVEL IN AZ AND SEEPING IN SOUTHERN UT...SO SOME OF THAT STABILIZING WILL
SLOWLY DRIFT NORTH THRU SOUTHERN UT AND WILL HELP WEAKEN S NV CONVECTION
AS THAT AREA OF CONVECTION DRIFTS EAST TOWARD THE UT BORDER AREA.
SO BELIEVE CIRCULATION NORTH IN UT WILL REMAIN DOMINANT FEATURE AND
COMBINE WITH SUBTROPICAL LIFTING NORTH FOR MOST ACTIVE CONVECTION N
UTAH INTO E CENTRAL UTAH AND WORK INTO SW WYOMING LATER THIS MORNING
AND AFTERNOON.  EAST EXTENT OF SHORT WAVE TROUGH ACROSS E CENTRAL UT AND
COMBINING WITH SUBTROPICAL SHORT WAVE LIFTING NORTH/NE ACROSS SOUTHERN
UT WILL HELP ORGANIZE WESTERN COLORADO CONVECTION MOSTLY STARTING IN THE
MOUNTAINS AND TAKING ADVANTAGE OF DEEPER ALREADY ACROSS WESTERN COLORADO
AND MAYBE ANY ADDITIONAL MOISTURE BEING ADVECTED NORTH FROM WEAKENING
COMPLEX IN E NM AND IT OUTFLOW BOUNDARY WEST INTO CENTRAL NM.
.
AN ANNOTATED SATELLITE GRAPHIC SHOWING THE HEAVY PRECIPITATION
THREAT AREA SHOULD BE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET ADDRESS LISTED
BELOW IN APPROXIMATELY 10-15 MINUTES.
.
SHORT TERM OUTLOOK VALID 1515-2015Z...MEDIUM CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...LOW TO MID LEVEL CIRCULATION AND MODERATE HIGH
MOISTURE UP TO 200 PERCENT OF NORMAL WILL IMPACT N UTAH AND SPREAD INTO
PARTS OF SE IDAHO AND SW WYOMING DURING THE LATE MORNING AND AFTERNOON
FOR INCREASED HVY RAIN CHANCES THERE.  SOUTHERN SUBTROPICAL VORT WILL
CONTINUE DRIFTING NORTHEAST AND ACTIVATE CONVECTION CENTRAL UTAH,
ESPECIALLY MOUNTAINS BUT MORE REINFORCE ACTIVITY FURTHER NORTH IN UTAH
AND SW WYOMING AND SPREAD IT INFLUENCE INTO THE WESTERN COLORADO MOUNTAINS
DURING THE LATE MORNING THRU MID AFTERNOON AND WESTERN COLORADO ACTIVITY
BEING FURTHER HELPED/INFLUENCED FOR LOCALLY HVY RAIN BY ADDITIONAL
MOISTURE COMING NORTH FROM TAIL END OF WEAKENING NM CONVECTIVE COMPLEX.
WILL OUTLINE MOST CONCERN AREA FOR HVY RAIN AND HEIGHTEN FF THREAT IN
GRAPHIC SENT SHORTLY.
