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 HURRICANE 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.
