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

A DISTURBANCE IN THE NORTHWEST FLOW WILL ACT ON AVAILABLE MOISTURE
TO BRING SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH MUCH OF 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.
