Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
951 AM MDT Sun Sep 25 2016

.SYNOPSIS...Building high pressure will bring dry conditions with
a warming trend through the first part of the week. A storm
system moving up from the south is expected to bring moisture back
to the area by midweek.


.DISCUSSION...It`s a beautiful fall morning in Utah and southwest
Wyoming, with sunny skies dominating across the region as a large
ridge of high pressure builds over the west coast. Other than some
high clouds drifting over the area in a northerly flow, these
sunny conditions will continue through this afternoon, with max
temperatures generally 5-10 degrees cooler than average for
September 25.

The ridge will slide eastward through Tuesday, with a warming
trend each day. A closed low over Arizona is then forecast to push
northward, bringing the forecast area a chance of showers and
thunderstorms late Tuesday through the end of the work week.

The forecast for today is in good shape and no updates are planned
for this morning.


.AVIATION...VFR conditions and mostly clear skies are expected
throughout the day at the SLC terminal. Light southerly winds will
shift to the Northwest around 16-18Z.


.FIRE WEATHER...High pressure aloft will build across the region
today through Monday, then remain in place for Tuesday. This will
result in dry conditions along with a warming trend. Winds will
remain northerly today, however as the high becomes centered
overhead winds will become light and driven by diurnal slope
flows. This high will shift east midweek, and be replaced by
southerly flow which will allow moisture to return northward
across the area.
