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

TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN HOT THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK INTO THE
HOLIDAY WEEKEND.  A MOSTLY SUNNY START TO THE DAY WILL TURN PARTLY
CLOUDY AS STORMS FORM OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN IN THE AFTERNOON AND
CONTINUE THROUGH THE EVENING, WITH A FEW STORMS DRIFTING INTO THE
VALLEYS LATE IN THE DAY.  STRONG GUSTY WINDS, BRIEF HEAVY RAIN AND
SMALL HAIL ARE POSSIBLE WITH STORMS ALONG WITH FREQUENT LIGHTNING.
EXPECT BETTER COVERAGE OF STORMS WEDNESDAY AS MOISTURE INCREASES AND
A DISTURBANCE MOVES THROUGH THE AREA.

A DRIER, NORTHWEST FLOW WILL SET UP LATE IN THE WEEK HEADING INTO
THE UPCOMING HOLIDAY WEEKEND AS HIGH PRESSURE MOVES FURTHER
WESTWARD, RESULTING IN A DOWNTURN IN STORM ACTIVITY.  MOISTURE WILL
RETURN TO THE AREA FROM THE SOUTHWEST EARLY NEXT WEEK AS THE HIGH
PRESSURE MOVES EAST OF THE FOUR CORNERS.
