FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR UTAH
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
313 PM MDT MON AUG 3 2015

...DRIER AIR FOR MOST OF THE WEEK...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL EXIT
NORTHERN UTAH TODAY. DRIER CONDITIONS AND NEAR SEASONAL
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED THROUGH MUCH OF THE REMAINDER OF THE
WEEK BEFORE MOISTURE RETURNS FROM THE SOUTH ON FRIDAY.

.DISCUSSION...A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL EXIT NORTHERN UTAH
THIS EVENING...WITH A DRIER AIRMASS MOVING INTO UTAH BEHIND THE
STORM. THIS WILL GREATLY REDUCE SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE
THE NEXT FEW DAYS...WITH MOST STORMS REMAINING NEAR THE UTAH/IDAHO
BORDER. GUSTY SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE MOST AFTERNOONS
THIS WEEK...WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS LIKELY ON WEDNESDAY AS A
STORM PASSES TO THE NORTH. DEEPER MOISTURE WILL LIKELY RETURN FROM
THE SOUTH ON FRIDAY...INCREASING THE CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA.

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