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

SKIES WILL CONTINUE TO BE HAZY TODAY, PARTICULARLY IN THE MORNING
HOURS AS SMOKE FROM WILDFIRES OVER THE WESTERN U.S. REMAINS TRAPPED
UNDERNEATH A BUILDING RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE. OTHERWISE, EXPECT
MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES AND ABOVE NORMAL WARMTH TODAY WITH AFTERNOON AND
EVENING STORMS MAINLY OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN.  THE BEST CHANCES FOR
STORMS WILL BE ACROSS THE SAN JUANS WITH SOME ISOLATED ACTIVITY
POSSIBLY DRIFTING INTO THE SOUTHERN VALLEYS LATE IN THE DAY.

MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL INCREASE FROM THE SOUTH BEGINNING LATE
TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY, WITH A STRONG DISTURBANCE MOVING THROUGH THE
REGION ON WEDNESDAY. THIS WILL RESULT IN AN INCREASE IN SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS LATE TUESDAY AFTERNOON, WITH STORMS BECOMING
WIDESPREAD BY WEDNESDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOLER ON WEDNESDAY AS
A RESULT. DRIER AIR MOVES BACK IN LATE IN THE WEEK FOR A WARMUP
TOWARDS NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND, WITH
STORMS MAINLY OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN.
