HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING IN ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST REGION WILL WARM UP
OUR HIGH TEMPERATURES WELL ABOVE SEASONAL NORMAL LEVELS THROUGH
SATURDAY. EXPECT SUNNY DAYS AND LIGHT WINDS THROUGH FRIDAY
BECOMING BREEZY SOUTHWESTERLIES WITH HIGHER GUSTS THIS WEEKEND.

SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...A COLD FRONT MOVING THROUGH THE WESTERN
STATES WILL PRODUCE STRONGER SOUTHWEST WINDS RANGING FROM 15 TO
25 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS FROM 25 TO 35 MPH ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY.
COOLER AIR MOVING IN FROM THE WEST WILL ALSO CAUSE OUR HIGH
TEMPERATURES TO COOL DOWN NEAR SEASONAL NORMAL LEVELS THROUGH THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. THERE IS ONLY A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR LIGHT
SHOWER ACTIVITY SUNDAY NIGHT ALONG THE UTAH BORDER REGION.
