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

HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER THE FOUR CORNERS TODAY WILL SHIFT
INTO NORTHERN UTAH OVER THE WEEKEND, ALLOWING POCKETS OF MOISTURE
TO MOVE THROUGH THE REGION. DAYTIME HEATING AND WEAK DISTURBANCES
WILL INTERACT WITH THE MOISTURE TO BRING A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS, ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE AREA.
STORMS WILL FORM INITIALLY OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN, THEN DRIFT OVER
SOME VALLEYS LATER IN THE DAY.  MOST THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO
BE RELATIVELY DRY, PRODUCING GUSTY WINDS AND DANGEROUS LIGHTNING BUT
ONLY LIGHT RAINFALL AMOUNTS. TEMPERATURES THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK
WILL BE SEASONAL TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL.
