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

A LOW PRESSURE STORM SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE MOVING NORTHEAST THIS
EVENING AND WILL EXIT ONTO THE PLAINS BY TOMORROW MORNING WITH
MOISTURE AND DISTURBANCES WRAPPING AROUND THE LOW. THIS WILL RESULT
IN MORE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LATE THIS EVENING AND CONTINUING
THROUGH TOMORROW NIGHT. SOME MOUNTAIN SNOW IS EXPECTED ABOVE 9500
FEET AS WELL.

CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN UNSETTLED THROUGH THE WEEK AS A TROUGH OF LOW
PRESSURE MOVES INTO THE GREAT BASIN, BRINGING MOISTURE INTO THE
REGION IN A MILDER SOUTHWEST FLOW BEGINNING ON TUESDAY. THIS
MOISTURE ALONG WITH DAYTIME HEATING AND INSTABILITY WILL SPARK
THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY, MAINLY DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING
HOURS. STORMS WILL FIRST DEVELOP OVER HIGHER TERRAIN BEFORE DRIFTING
INTO VALLEYS LATER IN THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THIS SYSTEM WILL
PROGRESS THROUGH THE REGION TOWARDS THE END OF THE WEEK.

TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO SEE A WARMING TREND THROUGHOUT THE WEEK WITH
VALUES CLOSER TO IF NOT A FEW DEGREES BELOW NORMAL.
