.DISCUSSION...With low level cold air resulting in poor mixing and
modest transport winds the clearing index values over the western
valleys will remain poor to fair today. Farther east under the warm
sector of the closed low moving in from Nevada clearing index values
will be excellent due to good transport winds and excellent mixing
heights. As the closed low moves overhead Sunday the transport winds
will be weak across the area but the mixing heights will be
excellent so the net result will be good to excellent clearing index
(CI) values.

As the core of the upper low warms Monday and Tuesday over eastern
Utah the mixing heights will decrease and transport winds will
remain light therefore the CI values will be poor from about the I-
15 corridor eastward while some good values will occur in the
western valleys due to better transport winds there.
