Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
933 PM MDT Mon Jun 26 2017

.SYNOPSIS...A weak upper trough will cross the region tonight and
Tuesday. Additional weak troughs will clip northern Utah through


.DISCUSSION...A shortwave trough currently lifting into the
northern Great Basin helped provide just enough forcing, and coupled
with very limited instability sparked a cluster of high based
showers which brought microburst winds to portions of the Dugway
area eastward into the Wasatch Front. This activity has largely
diminished across northern Utah, however as the trough axis lifts
through northeast NV into northern UT later tonight into Tuesday
morning, may see a few additional showers near the ID border.

The cold front associated with the passing wave will cross
northern Utah Tuesday morning, knocking 5-8 degrees off max temps
in the north, and perhaps 2-4 degrees in the south. However, gusty
west to southwest wind will be more widespread than today, and
will continue to result in critical fire weather conditions
across a large swath of the forecast area.

Updated earlier to remove PoPs cross southern and eastern valleys,
as well as to adjust cloud cover.


.AVIATION...South winds with VFR conditions will prevail at KSLC
through the overnight period.
