Spot Forecast for Salina Creek Unit 5
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
400 AM MDT Fri Jun 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...A dry west to northwesterly flow aloft will remain in
place through the weekend maintaining very dry and stable
conditions at the Salina Creek burn site. Wind trends will
continue to decrease today out of the west/west southwest, with
peak afternoon gusts backing off into the upper teens this
afternoon. Do not foresee much change in wind direction today
though these westerlies may fluctuate 40-50 degrees between the
WNW-WSW. This very dry airmass will maintain very low RH through
the weekend with overnight recovery remaining poor (upper 20s
only). Winds are expected to trend more to the southwest at modest
levels Monday coupled with a slight increasing trend of RH and
cloud cover as a bit of mid level looks to spread in from the south.
