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

PATCHY MOISTURE IN THE OVERHEAD NORTHWEST FLOW HAS BEEN ADEQUATE FOR
THE DEVELOPMENT OF ISOLATED AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA. STORMS WILL DISSIPATE BY LATE EVENING.

WINDS ALOFT WILL BECOME WESTERLY FOR SATURDAY, AND THEN SOUTHWEST BY
SUNDAY, AS HIGH PRESSURE BEGINS TO SLOWLY STRENGTHEN OVER NEW MEXICO
AND THE TEXAS PANHANDLE.

THUNDERSTORMS WILL BECOME A LITTLE MORE WIDESPREAD SATURDAY AND
SUNDAY, AS MOISTURE ROTATING AROUND THE DEVELOPING HIGH PRESSURE
RESPONDS TO AFTERNOON HEATING.

THE STRENGTHENING HIGH PRESSURE WILL ALSO ALLOW FOR A WARMING TREND
INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK, WITH DAYTIME TEMPERATURES CLIMBING TO ABOVE
SEASONAL LEVELS.
