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

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING OVER THE DESERT SOUTHWEST WILL
DOMINATE THE WEATHER OF THE FORECAST AREA THROUGH THE WORK WEEK AND
INTO THE COMING WEEKEND. CONDITIONS WILL BE DRY WITH A SLOW DAY TO
DAY WARMING TREND CONTINUING. SOME SNOW COVERED VALLEYS WILL BE
SLOWER TO RESPOND TO THE WARM UP, AS THIS STABLE WEATHER PATTERN
WILL GENERALLY KEEP COLDER AIR TRAPPED IN THESE VALLEYS. SOME OF
THESE VALLEYS MAY ALSO SEE AREAS OF LOW CLOUD AND FOG DURING THE
OVERNIGHT AND EARLY MORNING HOURS.

THE RIDGE BREAKS DOWN SOME AS A FEW DISTURBANCES MOVE THROUGH THE
NORTHWEST FLOW LATE SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY MORNING, BRINGING SOME
LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS TO THE NORTHERN COLORADO MOUNTAINS. DRY
CONDITIONS WILL BE SEEN ELSEWHERE WITH SOME PASSING CLOUDS.
TEMPERATURES WILL COOL DOWN SOME WITH THESE DISTURBANCES BUT REBOUND
AS THE RIDGE REBUILDS EARLY NEXT WEEK.
