FOR EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO, HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER
SYNOPSIS.

DISTURBANCES MOVING AROUND A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER
THE GREAT BASIN, AND AFTERNOON HEATING, WILL ACT ON RESIDUAL
MOISTURE, RESULTING IN ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TODAY. A FEW STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING
LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN. DRIER AIR WILL MOVE IN FOR SATURDAY WITH
FEWER STORMS AND WARMER DAYTIME TEMPERATURES ANTICIPATED. THE HIGH
PRESSURE WILL SLOWLY BE SHIFTING EAST THROUGH THE WEEKEND, AND BY
SUNDAY WILL BE IN A POSITION FAVORABLE TO BRING DEEP MOISTURE
FROM THE DESERT SOUTHWEST INTO THE FORECAST AREA. THIS WILL RESULT
IN AN INCREASED CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS BY SUNDAY NIGHT,
CONTINUING INTO THE NEW WEEK WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAIN ONCE
AGAIN.
