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

DISTURBANCES MOVING AROUND A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER
THE GREAT BASIN, AND AFTERNOON HEATING, WILL ACT ON RESIDUAL
MOISTURE, RESULTING IN SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THIS
EVENING. A FEW STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY HEAVY
RAIN.

DRIER AIR WILL MOVE IN FOR SATURDAY WITH FEWER STORMS AND WARMER
DAYTIME TEMPERATURES. THE SHOWER ACTIVITY WILL MAINLY BE SOUTH OF
INTERSTATE 70. THE HIGH PRESSURE WILL SLOWLY BE SHIFTING EAST
THROUGH THE WEEKEND, AND BY LATE SUNDAY WILL BE IN A POSITION
FAVORABLE TO BRING DEEP MOISTURE FROM THE DESERT SOUTHWEST INTO THE
FORECAST AREA. THIS WILL RESULT IN AN INCREASED CHANCE OF SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS BY SUNDAY NIGHT, CONTINUING INTO THE NEW WEEK WITH
THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAIN ONCE AGAIN.
