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

DEEP MOISTURE CONTINUES TO REMAIN IN PLACE TODAY, WITH MORE
INFILTRATING THE REGION AS AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE TRACKS EAST
ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA THIS AFTERNOON. THIS INCREASE IN MOISTURE
AND LIFT, COMBINED WITH DAYTIME HEATING, WILL ALLOW FOR AN INCREASE
OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TODAY. STRONGER STORMS WILL HAVE THE
POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE HEAVY RAIN, STRONG WINDS AND SMALL HAIL.
SHOWERS WILL BEGIN TO DIMINISH THIS EVENING AS DRY AIR MOVES IN FROM
SOUTHEAST UTAH, THOUGH SOME SHOWERS WILL PERSIST OVER THE NORTHWEST
COLORADO MOUNTAINS PAST MIDNIGHT.

MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY WILL REMAIN ADEQUATE FOR
UNSETTLED WEATHER TO CONTINUE INTO THE NEW WEEK. DAYTIME
TEMPERATURES WILL COOL TODAY AND INTO THE NEW WEEK, IN RESPONSE TO
CLOUDS AND SHOWERS.
