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

A DISTURBANCE IN THE NORTHWEST FLOW ALONG WITH AFTERNOON HEATING
WILL ACT ON AVAILABLE MOISTURE TO BRING SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS INTO THIS EVENING. SOME STORMS MAY BE STRONG, WITH
GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS AND SMALL HAIL POSSIBLE.  STORMS WILL ALSO BE
CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HEAVY RAIN AND FREQUENT LIGHTNING. SOME STORMS
MAY LINGER INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS AS THE BACKSIDE OF THE TROUGH
MOVES THROUGH WITH STORMS DISSIPATING BY SUNRISE AS DRIER AIR MOVES
IN.

A DRIER NORTHWEST FLOW WILL SET UP FOR THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WITH HIGH
PRESSURE BUILDING IN FOR THE WEEKEND INTO NEXT WEEK.  THIS WILL LEAD
TO MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES AND NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES, RISING TO ABOVE
NORMAL LEVELS BY THIS WEEKEND INTO NEXT WEEK. SOME LINGERING
MOISTURE WILL ALLOW STORMS TO DEVELOP OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN EACH
AFTERNOON.
