.SYNOPSIS...A relatively dry northwesterly flow will remain over
northern and central Utah through this evening. Moisture over
southern Utah will return northward tomorrow and Friday. Drier air
will return for the weekend and early next week.


.DISCUSSION...Showers and thunderstorms have basically gone to
rest over southern Utah except for a for residual showers
remaining over the southern mountains. Expect these to dissipate
by midnight. Have lowered POPs in general for the evening time
frame...especially over the central mountains and the Uintas.
Cloud cover was also reduced in many areas in conjunction with the
absence of showers.

Although did not address in the evening update...the POPs across
southwest Utah Thursday morning may be overdone...but will let mid
crew decide and pull if need be. The combination of the jet
dynamics of the trough extending out into the Western Great Basin
and a little additional moisture being tapped will likely increase
the thunderstorm coverage Thursday afternoon which is handled well
in current forecast...although 500mb vort max moving along the
Idaho border may bring a better threat of showers to the Bear Lake
area Thursday afternoon.


.AVIATION...Southeast winds will prevail at the SLC terminal
through about 16-18Z then shift to the northwest. VFR conditions
will persist through the TAF period.
