SPOT FORECAST FOR CASSIDY FIRE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
753 AM MDT SAT JUL 23 2016

.DISCUSSION...A DRIER WESTERLY FLOW HAS DEVELOPED ACROSS SOUTHERN
UTAH TODAY AND AFTERNOON RH WILL FALL INTO THE TEENS. ENOUGH
MOISTURE WILL LINGER TO ALLOW ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS TO FORM OVER
THE SOUTHERN UTAH MOUNTAINS THIS AFTERNOON WITH THE MAIN THREAT
FROM THESE BEING GUSTY ERRATIC WINDS AND LIGHTNING. AWAY FROM
STORMS WINDS WILL BE TERRAIN DRIVEN WITH AFTERNOON WEST WINDS
COMBINING WITH THE UPSLOPE AND POSSIBLY GETTING A LITTLE GUSTY.
LIGHTER WINDS ARE FORECAST FOR SUNDAY BUT THERE REMAINS A SMALL
CHANCE OF AN AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM. MOISTURE INCREASES A BIT ON
MONDAY WITH A LITTLE BETTER CHANCE OF STORMS.
