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

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING OVER THE GREAT BASIN, HAS TURNED
THE UPPER LEVEL WINDS TO A MUCH DRIER NORTHWEST DIRECTION. THE DRIER
AIR MASS WILL RESULT IN A NOTICEABLE DECREASE IN AFTERNOON SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY. STILL, A LATE DAY
THUNDERSTORM OR TWO MAY DEVELOP OVER THE MOUNTAINS, ESPECIALLY OVER
THE MOUNTAINS OF SOUTHWEST COLORADO. THE DRIER AIR MASS WILL ALSO
TRANSLATE INTO MORE DAYTIME SUNSHINE AND WARMER AFTERNOON
TEMPERATURES. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL RUN 5 TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE
SEASONAL FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WORK WEEK, WITH THE 100 DEGREE
MARK BEING CHALLENGED IN MANY LOWER VALLEYS. MONSOON MOISTURE LOOKS
TO MAKE A RETURN BY THE COMING WEEKEND.
