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

HIGH PRESSURE ONCE CENTERED OVER OKLAHOMA HAS SHIFTED BACK TO THE
WEST, CUTTING OFF THE SOUTHERLY MOIST FLOW, AND ALLOWING A LITTLE
DRIER AIR TO PUSH INTO THE FORECAST AREA FROM THE WEST. THE DRIER
AIR WILL MEAN LESS SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY INTO THE
WEEKEND, WITH DAYTIME TEMPERATURES ON A SLOW WARMING TREND IN
RESPONSE TO INCREASED SUNSHINE. ALTHOUGH, SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
WILL BY NO MEANS END. THE AIR MASS WILL REMAIN SUFFICIENTLY MOIST
FOR ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EACH AFTERNOON
AND EVENING THROUGH THE WEEKEND, WITH SOME CAPABLE OF PRODUCING
HEAVY RAIN. SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL BECOME MORE RESTRICTED TO THE
MOUNTAINS OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, ESPECIALLY THE MOUNTAINS OF
SOUTHWEST COLORADO, WHERE MOISTURE WILL REMAIN MOST ABUNDANT.
