Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
1053 AM MDT Mon Sep 26 2016

.SYNOPSIS...Building high pressure will bring dry conditions with
a warming trend through the first part of the week. A storm
system moving up from the south is expected to bring moisture back
to the area by midweek.


.DISCUSSION...Strong ridge of high pressure over the Great Basin
this morning with upper level low over the Baja Peninsula. This
will keep Utah under a very dry northeast-east flow aloft for the
early portion of the week. Today Utah and southwest Wyoming will
see a bit of a warming trend under sunny skies. This trend will
continue on Tuesday although moisture associated with upper level
low begins to lift north into southern Utah.

Upper level low lifts north during the middle of the week bringing
a chance for showers and thunderstorms back to the area for the
middle and latter portion of the week.


.AVIATION...VFR conditions and mostly clear skies are expected
to prevail at the SLC terminal through the valid TAF period.
Southeasterly winds will shift to the northwest in the 18-19Z time
frame, although there is a 30 percent chance winds will begin to
shift at 17Z.
