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

A DISTURBANCE IN THE NORTHWEST FLOW ALONG WITH AFTERNOON HEATING
WILL ACT ON AVAILABLE MOISTURE TO CAUSE STORMS TO RE-FIRE. SOME
STORMS MAY BE STRONG, WITH GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS AND SMALL HAIL
POSSIBLE.  STORMS WILL ALSO BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HEAVY RAIN AND
FREQUENT LIGHTNING. SOME STORMS MAY LINGER INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS
AS THE BACKSIDE OF THE TROUGH MOVES THROUGH WITH STORMS DISSIPATING
BY SUNRISE AS DRIER AIR MOVES IN.

A DRIER NORTHWEST FLOW WILL SET UP FOR THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WITH HIGH
PRESSURE BUILDING IN FOR THE WEEKEND INTO NEXT WEEK.  THIS WILL LEAD
TO MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES AND NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES, RISING TO ABOVE
NORMAL LEVELS BY THIS WEEKEND INTO NEXT WEEK. SOME LINGERING
MOISTURE WILL ALLOW STORMS TO DEVELOP OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN EACH
AFTERNOON.
