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

THE LOW PRESSURE STORM SYSTEM, SPINNING OVER SOUTHERN ARIZONA THIS
MORNING, WILL SLOWLY SHIFT EASTWARD AND LIFT NORTHEAST THROUGH NEW
MEXICO INTO SOUTHEAST COLORADO BY THURSDAY MORNING.  MOISTURE AND
DISTURBANCES ROTATING AROUND THE LOW WILL LEAD TO ANOTHER ROUND OF
SHOWERS AND STORMS WITH THE BEST CHANCES OF PRECIPITATION SOUTH OF I-
70.  BRIEF HEAVY RAIN, SMALL HAIL AND GUSTY WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE
WITH THE STRONGER STORMS.  SOME SNOW IS POSSIBLE OVER THE MOUNTAINS
ABOVE 10,000 FEET BUT ROADS WILL REMAIN WET WITH MINIMAL IMPACTS.
DRIER AIR BEGINS TO MOVE IN THURSDAY BEHIND THE DEPARTING SYSTEM,
BUT RESIDUAL MOISTURE AND DAYTIME HEATING WILL SPARK ANOTHER ROUND
OF AFTERNOON STORMS MAINLY OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN.

ANOTHER LOW PRESSURE STORM SYSTEM WILL DEEPEN OVER THE WESTERN
STATES TOWARDS THE END OF THE WEEK AND BECOME RELATIVELY STATIONARY.
THIS WILL RESULT IN AN INCREASED DRY, SOUTHWEST FLOW ACROSS EASTERN
UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO WITH WINDY CONDITIONS AND TEMPERATURES
WARMING BACK ABOVE NORMAL FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND.
