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

HOT AND UNSEASONABLY WARM WEATHER WILL CONTINUE THROUGH MUCH OF THE
COMING WEEK WITH MOISTURE SLOWLY INCREASING EACH DAY UNDERNEATH AN
AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER UTAH. THIS WILL RESULT IN A
SLIGHT INCREASE IN THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY AND COVERAGE DAY TO DAY
THROUGH WEDNESDAY.  STORMS WILL FAVOR THE HIGHER TERRAIN DURING THE
AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS, WITH SOME DRIFTING OFF THE HIGHER TERRAIN
LATE IN THE DAY.  EXPECT GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS TO BE THE PRIMARY
THREAT WITH STORMS, WITH SMALL HAIL AND BRIEF HEAVY RAIN POSSIBLE
WITH THE STRONGER STORMS.  THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BEGINS TO
BROADEN WEST FROM THE GREAT BASIN LATE THIS WEEK, ALLOWING FOR A
SLIGHT DECREASE IN COVERAGE OF STORMS WITH MOST ACTIVITY LIMITED TO
THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF WESTERN COLORADO.
