294, AS WELL AS UTAH FIRE WEATHER ZONES 486, 487, 490 AND 491...

.DISCUSSION...
An upper level trough will move overhead today causing a slight
uptick in showers and storms mainly for the mountains. More
importantly, deep mixing will allow gusty winds of 25 to 35 mph to
reach the surface later today. These winds, along with dry fuels
and low humidities, will create critical fire weather conditions
this afternoon so a Red Flag Warning has been issued for many
areas. Tomorrow, another trough will push through with similar
results expected. For now, a Fire Weather Watch has been issued
for tomorrow afternoon and evening. High pressure will build in
Thursday onward bringing a return to more tranquil weather.

...GUSTY ERRATIC WINDS CAN BE EXPECTED NEAR ANY SHOWERS
OR THUNDERSTORMS...
...THE SMOKE DATA IS CALCULATED FROM AN AVERAGE AT 6000 FEET MSL...
