FOR EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO, HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER
SYNOPSIS.

RESIDUAL MONSOON MOISTURE WILL CONTINUE TO FOSTER ISOLATED SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS TODAY, AHEAD OF A WEAK UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM ON THE
PERIPHERY OF THE HIGH PRESSURE CIRCULATION OVER THE CENTRAL US. THE
MOST LIKELY AREA FOR SIGNIFICANT RAIN CHANCES REMAINS ACROSS THE
MOUNTAINS.

UPPER LEVEL WINDS WILL SHIFT TO A MORE WESTERLY DIRECTION AS THE
AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE INTENSIFIES THROUGH THE WEEKEND.  THIS WILL
MOVE DRIER AIR INTO THE AREA LATE IN THE WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT
WEEK. RAIN CHANCES WILL DIMINISH AS THIS DRY AIR MAKES ITS WAY IN
FROM THE WEST. A TRANSITION TO A HOTTER AND DRIER PERIOD IS EXPECTED
THROUGH NEXT WEEK.
