Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
942 PM MDT SAT MAY 28 2016

.SYNOPSIS...A low pressure system moving slowly east through the
desert southwest will serve to keep unsettled conditions across
portions of Utah through Monday. Strong high pressure aloft will
follow for the middle and latter portions of the upcoming week.


.DISCUSSION...Convection has persisted into this eve along and
south of a deformation axis lifting into nrn UT at this time.
Expect this to persist overnight and spread across the remainder
of the north after midnight. Some of this remains scattered in
coverage as of mid eve but showers should become isolated after

Some of this isolated convection will last into Sun morning with
terrain based activity starting up early. An unstable airmass will
be in place under increasing upper support as the closed low over
srn CA starts to phase with the trof entering the nrn Rockies. The
threat of showers looks to actually increase Sun night into Mon
morning as the nrn branch trof sweeps across the CWA with activity
diminishing Mon afternoon from the nw as the trof axis passes and
the airmass stabilizes. Ridging then starts building into the
Great Basin with a drying and warming trend expected thru the end
of the week.

Updated earlier to raise eve pops mostly for the Wasatch Front
then updated again to lower pops most areas for the rest of this
eve but kept an isolated mention in most areas after midnight. No
additional updates planned.


.AVIATION...Winds are expected to become predominately southerly
at the SLC Terminal after 04Z. Isolated showers could bring brief
erratic winds at times between about 06-13z.
