NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
612 PM MDT FRI JUL 29 2016

...RED FLAG WARNING FROM NOON TODAY TO 10 PM MDT SATURDAY FOR
DRY THUNDERSTORMS AND GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS...

.DISCUSSION...MOISTURE WILL CONTINUE TO DEEPEN TONIGHT THROUGH
TOMORROW AS A FAVORABLE RETURN FLOW AROUND THE DESERT SOUTHWEST
HIGH TAPS THIS MOISTURE FROM THE SOUTH AND WEST. HAVE REMOVED
POTENTIAL FOR THUNDERSTORMS THIS EVENING AS ANY DEVELOPMENT AT
THIS POINT WILL REMAIN SHALLOW WITH ONLY A FEW SPRINKLES OR
LIGHT SHOWERS THROUGH THIS EVENING. AM NOT EXPECTING WETTING
RAINS THIS EVENING HOWEVER. CLOUDS ARE EXPECTED TO THIN SLIGHTLY
WITH LOSS OF SOLAR TONIGHT WITH PARTLY CLOUDY CONDITIONS EXPECTED
TO HOLD THROUGH AT LEAST MID MORNING TOMORROW BEFORE DEVELOPMENT
BEGINS TO BUILD OVER SURROUNDING TERRAIN. EXPECTING SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP LARGELY AFTER NOON TOMORROW
WITH A SLIGHTLY BETTER CHANCE OF WETTING RAIN (25%) IN THE
1300-2100 WINDOW TOMORROW. THESE STORMS WILL REMAIN HIGH BASED
SO RH WILL BE SLOW TO RESPOND TO THE MOISTURE INITIALLY...AND
GUSTY ERRATIC OUTFLOW WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE DUE TO THE DRY SUB
CLOUD LAYER IN PLACE. CAN NOT RULE OUT OUTFLOW GUSTS IN EXCESS
OF 40 MPH WITH ANY PASSING STORM. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS
WILL REMAIN A POTENTIAL FOR SUNDAY...AND RH WILL LIKELY BE
SLOWLY CLIMBING WITH BETTER OVERNIGHT RECOVERY. WETTING RAIN
POTENTIAL LOOKS TO BE ABOUT 30 PERCENT SUNDAY AFTERNOON.
