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

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL PROVIDE FOR MOSTLY DRY WEATHER AND
ABOVE SEASONAL DAYTIME TEMPERATURES THROUGH THURSDAY. PATCHY
MOISTURE FILTERING INTO THE REGION, WILL ALLOW FOR A FEW SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS, MAINLY ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN AND SOUTHERN
FOOTHILLS. THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL STORM ODILE LOOK TO MOVE SOUTH
OF THE FOUR CORNERS THROUGH ARIZONA AND NEW MEXICO ON
FRIDAY...LEAVING THE BEST MOISTURE SOUTH OF THE REGION.  SHOWERS AND
STORMS ARE STILL POSSIBLE ON FRIDAY WITH SCATTERED IN THE MOUNTAINS
AND ISOLATED IN VALLEYS WITH MUCH LESS COVERAGE ON SATURDAY.  A LOW
PRESSURE TROUGH WILL PUSH IN FROM THE WEST ALLOWING THE HIGH TO
SHIFT EASTWARD AND PULL BETTER MOISTURE INTO THE AREA STARTING
SUNDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK FOR INCREASING COVERAGE AND CHANCE OF
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.
