FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR UTAH
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
408 AM MDT TUE JUN 2 2015

...WARM...DRY AND BREEZY ACROSS SOUTHERN UTAH TODAY...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS ACROSS MOST OF
THE DISTRICT TODAY WITH GUSTY SOUTH WINDS EXPECTED ACROSS
SOUTHERN UTAH. ISOLATED...AND MOSTLY TERRAIN BASED...CONVECTION
POSSIBLE ACROSS MAINLY NORTHERN UTAH THROUGH THURSDAY. AN UPPER
LEVEL LOW THEN MOVES SLOWLY ACROSS THE WEST BRINGING INCREASED
MOISTURE BACK TO THE AREA FRIDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

.DISCUSSION...A WEAK UPPER LEVEL TROUGH IS SITUATED
ALONG THE WEST COAST WITH AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OVER THE CENTRAL
AND SOUTHERN PLAINS. THIS LARGE SCALE PATTERN WILL KEEP THE
DISTRICT UNDER WARM AND RELATIVELY DRY FLOW THROUGH THURSDAY. THE
FRONTAL BOUNDARY THAT MOVED THROUGH NORTHERN UTAH ON MONDAY
EVENING HAS STALLED ACROSS CENTRAL UTAH. SOUTH OF THE STALLED
BOUNDARY MANY AREAS WILL EXPERIENCE GUSTY WINDS THIS AFTERNOON.
MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL ALSO BE QUITE LOW ACROSS SOUTHERN UTAH
THIS AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES WILL BE ABOUT 10 DEGREES COOLER
ACROSS NORTHERN UTAH TODAY WITH LIGHT NORTH OR TERRAIN DRIVEN
WINDS. AN UPPER LEVEL LOW THEN MOVES DOWN THE CALIFORNIA COAST ON
FRIDAY BEFORE DRIFTING SLOWLY ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN FOR THE
WEEKEND. THIS UPPER LEVEL LOW TAPS INTO DEEPER SUB-TROPICAL
MOISTURE BRINGING INCREASED COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
AND TO THE AREA FOR THE WEEKEND.


***THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY STRONG GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS***
***ALL WINDS ARE 20 FOOT...10-MINUTE AVERAGES***
