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

THE CIRCULATION AROUND HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER NORTHEAST NEW
MEXICO, WILL STEER MONSOONAL MOISTURE INTO THE FORECAST AREA TODAY

A WEATHER DISTURBANCE IN THE FLOW WILL ALSO MOVE THROUGH THE REGION,
HELPING TO KICK OFF WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THIS
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. SOME STORMS WILL PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN.
DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOLER TODAY AND THURSDAY IN CLOUDS AND
SHOWERS. THE HIGH PRESSURE WILL MIGRATE TO SOUTHEAST ARIZONA BY MID
DAY THURSDAY CUTTING OFF THE MOIST SOUTHERLY FLOW. DRIER AIR WILL
MOVE IN FROM THE WEST, WITH SHOWERS DECREASING FROM THE WEST
THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT. LINGERING MOISTURE WILL ALLOW FOR A
CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS OVER HIGHER ELEVATIONS FRIDAY INTO THE
WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES WILL WARM TO NEAR SEASONAL BY THE WEEKEND.
