.DISCUSSION...UNUSUALLY COOL STORM SYSTEM EXITING THE REGION TODAY
WILL STILL IMPACT THE AREA WITH AN UNSTABLE AIR MASS RESULTING IN
GOOD TO EXCELLENT CLEARING INDICES. HOWEVER NORTHWEST PORTIONS OF
THE DISTRICT WILL SEE MORE STABLE CONDITIONS SUNDAY AS A WEAK SHORT
WAVE RIDGE BUILDS OVER NORTHERN UTAH. AS A RESULT CLEARING INDICES
OVER THE SALT LAKE DESERT WILL FALL BELOW 500. ELSEWHERE GOOD TO
EXCELLENT CLEARING INDICES WILL PREVAIL DUE TO GOOD TRANSPORT WINDS.
GOOD TO EXCELLENT CLEARING INDEX VALUES SHOULD OCCUR MONDAY AS A
STORM SYSTEM APPROACHES AND THE TRANSPORT WINDS INCREASE. THE
CLEARING INDICES REMAIN ELEVATED TUESDAY DUE TO AN UNSTABLE AIR
MASS.
