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

THE LARGE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS OVER THE SOUTHERN GREAT
BASIN EXTENDING INTO THE CENTRAL PLAINS, WITH A STUBBORN LOW
PRESSURE CENTER OVER EASTERN COLORADO.  THE HIGH PRESSURE WILL
CONTINUE TO BRING UNSEASONABLY WARM TEMPERATURES TO THE REGION TODAY
AND INTO THE NEW WEEK. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE 3 TO 8 DEGREES
ABOVE AVERAGE FOR MID JULY. ADEQUATE MOISTURE REMAINS IN PLACE FOR
THE DAILY ROUND OF ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS,
MAINLY OVER HIGHER ELEVATIONS, TODAY AND INTO THE NEW WEEK. AT MID
WEEK, THE HIGH PRESSURE CENTER WILL SHIFT TO THE EAST, ALLOWING A
MORE MOIST SOUTHERLY FLOW INTO THE FORECAST AREA, RESULTING IN A
BETTER CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.
