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

SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL INCREASE TODAY AS THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE
MOVES EASTWARD OVER THE FRONT RANGE.  LINGERING MOISTURE AND DAYTIME
HEATING WILL SPARK ISOLATED TO SCATTERED STORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING.  TEMPERATURES WILL BE WARM WITH ABOVE NORMAL READINGS.
CONVECTION SHOULD WIND DOWN AFTER SUNSET WITH A FEW LINGERING INTO
THE EVENING AS DRIER AIR MOVES INTO THE AREA.

THIS DRY SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL REMAIN THROUGH MID WEEK WITH SOME
ISOLATED STORMS POSSIBLE OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN DURING THE
AFTERNOONS AND WARM ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES CONTINUING.

MOISTURE RETURNS TO THE REGION FROM THE SOUTHWEST LATE THIS WEEK, AS
A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM DROPS DOWN THE WEST COAST AND DEEPENS OVER
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, FOR INCREASING COVERAGE AND CHANCES OF SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS.
