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

RESIDUAL MONSOON MOISTURE WILL CONTINUE TO FOSTER ISOLATED SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS TODAY AHEAD OF A WEAK UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM ON THE
PERIPHERY OF THE HIGH PRESSURE CIRCULATION OVER THE CENTRAL US. THE
MOSTLY LIKELY AREA FOR SIGNIFICANT RAIN CHANCES REMAINS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN
AND EASTERN MOUNTAINS WHERE MOISTURE IS DEEPEST. UPPER LEVEL WINDS WILL SHIFT
TO A MORE WESTERLY DIRECTION AS THE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE INTENSIFIES THROUGH
THE WEEKEND.  THIS WILL MOVE DRIER AIR INTO THE AREA LATE IN THE WEEKEND AND
INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. RAIN CHANCES WILL DIMINISH AS THIS DRY AIR MAKES ITS WAY
IN FROM THE WEST. A TRANSITION TO A HOTTER AND DRIER PERIOD IS EXPECTED THROUGH NEXT WEEK.
