FOR EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO, HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER
SYNOPSIS.

A LOW PRESSURE STORM SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE MOVING NORTHEAST TODAY
EXITING ONTO THE PLAINS BY MONDAY WITH MOISTURE AND DISTURBANCES
WRAPPING AROUND THE LOW. THIS WILL RESULT IN MORE SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TODAY AND MONDAY, INCREASING BY THIS AFTERNOON WITH
SOME LASTING WELL INTO THE EVENING. SOME MOUNTAIN SNOW IS EXPECTED
ABOVE 9500 FEET AS WELL.

CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN UNSETTLED THROUGH THE WEEK AS A TROUGH OF LOW
PRESSURE MOVES INTO THE GREAT BASIN, BRINGING MOISTURE INTO THE
REGION IN A MILDER SOUTHWEST FLOW BEGINNING ON TUESDAY.  THIS
MOISTURE ALONG WITH DAYTIME HEATING AND INSTABILITY WILL SPARK
THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY, MAINLY DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING
HOURS. STORMS WILL FIRST DEVELOP OVER HIGHER TERRAIN BEFORE DRIFTING
INTO VALLEYS LATER IN THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THIS SYSTEM WILL
PROGRESS THROUGH THE REGION TOWARDS THE END OF THE WEEK.

TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO SEE A WARMING TREND THROUGHOUT THE WEEK WITH
VALUES CLOSER TO IF NOT A FEW DEGREES BELOW NORMAL.
