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

SOME LIGHT SHOWERS WITH EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH
THE MORNING HOURS ACROSS WEST CENTRAL AND SOUTHWEST COLORADO AS A
WEAK DISTURBANCE MOVES NORTHWARD. COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING, AS A RESULT OF THE CONTINUED SURGE OF SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE
FROM THE SOUTH.  IN ADDITION, A STRONG DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE THROUGH
THE REGION THROUGHOUT THE DAY, LEADING TO SOME STRONGER STORMS WITH
HEAVY RAIN, SMALL HAIL AND GUSTY WINDS. MOST ACTIVITY WILL WIND DOWN
TONIGHT, WITH SOME STORMS CONTINUING THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS.

A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE ACROSS THE NORTHERN ROCKIES THIS
WEEKEND WITH DRIER AIR PUSHING IN FROM THE WEST.  THIS WILL LEAD TO
A DOWNTURN IN STORM ACTIVITY ON SATURDAY COMPARED TO FRIDAY, WITH
SCATTERED STORMS MAINLY OVER HIGHER TERRAIN.  MUCH DRIER AND COOLER
CONDITIONS WILL BE FELT ON SUNDAY WITH LITTLE TO NO STORM ACTIVITY.
NEXT WEEK WILL BE MET WITH MAINLY DRY CONDITIONS WITH SOME AFTERNOON
STORMS OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN. TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO RUN
NEAR TO BELOW NORMAL.
