SPOT FORECAST FOR CEDAR CITY PILES
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
427 AM MST MON DEC 5 2016

.DISCUSSION...A COLD FRONT WILL TRAVEL ACROSS THE STATE TODAY, BUT
IT WILL BE MOSTLY DRY BY THE TIME IT REACHES THE BURN SITE THIS
AFTERNOON. WITH MODERATE TRANSPORT WINDS, CLEARING INDICES WILL
REMAIN GOOD TODAY. A SECOND TROUGH WILL MOVE ACROSS NORTHERN AND
CENTRAL UTAH TOMORROW AFTERNOON, ALLOWING SOUTHWEST WINDS TO
BECOME GUSTY AT THE BURN SITE. WINDS WILL DECREASE WEDNESDAY AS
HIGH PRESSURE BRIEFLY MOVES THROUGH THE AREA, AND THIS LOOKS TO BE
THE ONE DAY OF THE WEEK WHERE CLEARING INDICES MAY DROP BELOW 500.
A MOIST, INCREASINGLY WARM, AND SOMEWHAT UNSTABLE WESTERLY FLOW
IS THEN EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OVER THE AREA THURSDAY, PERSISTING
INTO FRIDAY. COLDER AIR WILL MOVE INTO THE STATE OVER THE WEEKEND,
WITH A MODERATE WESTERLY FLOW REMAINING OVER THE BURN SITE.
