Spot Forecast for Salina Creek Unit 5
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
345 AM MDT Thu Jun 22 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 10 PM MDT THIS
EVENING...

.DISCUSSION...High pressure will continue to promote very warm
and dry conditions at the Salina Creek Unit 5 site today, but
a shallow boundary working in from the north will aid to
transition winds more west to northwest over the next 24 hours.
Dry conditions are expected with excellent clearing potential under
these conditions, but note wind gusts approaching 30 mph coupled
with a Haines of 5 this afternoon/eve. Wind trends will gradually
decrease out of the northwest Friday, but breezy conditions in
the teens look to be realized along with a maintenance of very
low RH with only modest at best recovery during the overnight
hours heading into the weekend. Breezy NW winds look to hold
through Saturday prior to becoming lighter and more diurnally
terrain driven Sunday into early next week.
