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

AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN US
WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP THE AREA HOT AND MOSTLY DRY THROUGH THE WEEKEND. A FEW SHOWERS
WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH THE WEEKEND THOUGH MOST OF THE AREA SHOULD REMAIN DRY. A WEAK
DISTURBANCE PASSING ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF THIS RIDGE WILL PULL SEASONABLY STRONG
MONSOONAL MOISTURE NORTHWARD INTO WESTERN COLORADO AND EASTERN UTAH LATE THIS WEEKEND
AND EARLY NEXT WEEK.  THIS WILL SET THE STAGE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
MAINLY ACORSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN FURTHER SOUTH.  HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO BE
ABOVE SEASONAL NORMS BEFORE RETURNING TO NEAR NORMAL AROUND MID WEEK.
