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

HAZY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA THROUGH EARLY
NEXT WEEK, AS SMOKE FROM WILDFIRES IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST REMAINS
TRAPPED UNDERNEATH A BUILDING RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE.  THE NORTH
WILL REMAIN DRY, WHILE MOISTURE SLOWLY SEEPS INTO THE FOUR CORNERS
REGION, ALLOWING FOR ISOLATED TO SCATTERED STORMS OVER SOUTHEAST
UTAH AND SOUTHWEST COLORADO EACH AFTERNOON AND EVENING. TEMPERATURES
WILL BE VERY WARM WITH ABOVE NORMAL READINGS THROUGH TUESDAY.

MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL INCREASE FROM THE SOUTH BEGINNING TUESDAY
INTO WEDNESDAY, AS THE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE SHIFTS EAST OF THE FOUR
CORNERS AND AN EMBEDDED DISTURBANCE MOVES THROUGH THE REGION. THIS
WILL ALLOW FOR INCREASING COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS, BECOMING
WIDESPREAD BY WEDNESDAY AND SHOULD ALSO HELP TO CLEAR ANY LINGERING
SMOKE AND HAZE OUT OF THE AREA. TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOLER DUE TO
INCREASED CLOUD COVER AND SHOWERS FROM WEDNESDAY THROUGH THE END OF
THE WEEK, WITH BELOW NORMAL READINGS.
