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

A WEAK DISTURBANCE PASSES OVER THE FORECAST AREA THIS MORNING,
ALLOWING FOR SOME SCATTERED SHOWERS TO DEVELOP. HIGH PRESSURE OVER
THE REGION WILL RESULT IN MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES AND TEMPERATURES SOME 5
TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL TODAY. AN ACTIVE NORTHERN STREAM WILL
PUSH THE RIDGE EASTWARD THIS AFTERNOON, ALLOWING MUCH DRIER AIR TO
MOVE IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST. THIS DRY SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL REMAIN
THROUGH MID WEEK WITH SOME ISOLATED STORMS POSSIBLE OVER THE HIGHER
TERRAIN DURING THE AFTERNOONS AND WARM ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES
CONTINUING.

MOISTURE RETURNS TO THE REGION FROM THE SOUTHWEST LATE THIS WEEK, AS
A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM DROPS DOWN THE WEST COAST AND DEEPENS OVER
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, FOR INCREASING COVERAGE AND CHANCES OF SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS.
