.DISCUSSION...AN UPPER LOW OVER SOUTHERN UTAH WILL CONTINUE TO BRING
PRECIPITATION TO THE SOUTH TODAY WHILE A MORE STABLE AND DRIER
AIRMASS RESIDES ACROSS THE NORTH. HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO
BUILD IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST TOMORROW INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK INCREASING
STABILITY THROUGHOUT AND DECREASING TRANSPORT WINDS ALOFT. THE NET
OUTCOME WILL BE A SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION OF CLEARING POTENTIAL
TOMORROW AND MONDAY. THE NEXT UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM WILL APPROACH FROM
THE SOUTHWEST TUESDAY INCREASING SOUTHWESTERLY TRANSPORT WINDS ALOFT
WHILE PROVIDING DEEPER MIXING HEIGHTS. WITH THIS CLEARING WILL ONCE
AGAIN RETURN TO EXCELLENT ACROSS THE WESTERN BASINS...BUT GOOD TO
EVEN POOR MIXING WILL BE RETAINED ACROSS THE FAR EASTERN BASINS DUE
TO MORE INFLUENCE FROM THE DEPARTING HIGH.
