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

HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUES TO DOMINATE THE REGION TODAY AND TOMORROW,
USHERING IN DRIER AIR FROM THE SOUTHWEST. A WARMING TREND WILL ENSUE
WITH DAYTIME HIGHS REBOUNDING BACK TO NEAR OR SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL.
GUSTY WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDTY IN PORTIONS OF NORTHWEST AND
WEST CENTRAL COLORADO WILL CONTRIBUTE TO ENHANCED FIRE WEATHER
CONCERNS THIS AFTERNOON. CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN CLEAR FOR THE REST
OF THE FORECAST AREA, WITH ISOLATED SHOWERS AND STORMS GENERALLY
CONFINED TO THE HIGHER TERRAIN IN WESTERN COLORADO TODAY AND
TOMORROW.

MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL RETURN ON FRIDAY AS THE HIGH PRESSURE IS
SHIFTED EAST INTO TEXAS. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR AN INCREASED COVERAGE
IN SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FOR THE WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES WILL COOL
SLIGHTLY IN RESPONSE TO INCREASED CLOUD COVER AND SHOWERS.
