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

HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER SOUTHERN UTAH, WAS SLOWLY MOVING TO THE
EAST, WITH MOISTURE BEING DRAWN UP INTO THE HIGH PRESSURE FROM THE
SOUTH. THIS INCREASE IN MOISTURE, COMBINED WITH DAYTIME HEATING,
WILL ALLOW FOR AN INCREASE IN AFTERNOON AND EVENING SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS. STRONGER STORMS WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE
BRIEF HEAVY RAIN, SMALL HAIL, AND GUSTY WINDS. STORMS WILL GENERALLY
FAVOR THE SOUTHERN FORECAST AREA THRU SATURDAY. MOISTURE WILL SPREAD
NORTHWARD ON SUNDAY, ALLOWING FOR INCREASED COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND
STORMS. MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY WILL REMAIN ADEQUATE FOR UNSETTLED
WEATHER TO CONTINUE INTO THE NEW WEEK.  ABOVE SEASONAL DAYTIME
TEMPERATURES WILL COOL IN RESPONSE TO CLOUDS AND SHOWERS.
