AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
925 PM MDT SAT AUG 23 2014

.SYNOPSIS...A COLD STORM SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO EXIT THE AREA
TONIGHT. ANOTHER DISTURBANCE WILL IMPACT THE AREA EARLY NEXT WEEK
BEFORE HIGH PRESSURE RETURNS FOR THE LATTER PART OF THE WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...A BROAD UPPER LEVEL TROUGH REMAINS IN PLACE OVER THE
NORTHWESTERN CONUS. ALTHOUGH UTAH REMAINS UNDER A COOL CYCLONIC FLOW
ALOFT AS A RESULT...THE BULK OF THE ENERGY FROM THE LATEST STORM HAS
EXITED THE AREA. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THAT DEVELOPED EARLIER
TODAY ACROSS NORTHERN UTAH HAVE SINCE DISSIPATED AS INSTABILITY
WANED DUE TO BOTH THE LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING AND WARMING ALOFT.
CLOUDS AND A FEW WEAK SHOWERS STILL PERSIST MAINLY ACROSS SOUTHERN
UTAH NEAR THE POSITION OF THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY. OTHERWISE...EXPECT A
CONTINUED CLEARING TREND FOR MOST AREAS WITH RELATIVELY COLD
OVERNIGHT MINS.

A NEAR ZONAL FLOW WILL DEVELOP TOMORROW BEFORE THE NEXT SYSTEM
CARVES SOUTH TOMORROW NIGHT...RESULTING IN SOUTHWEST FLOW ACROSS THE
AREA. MODELS DO KEEP ENOUGH MOISTURE IN PLACE TO GENERATE A FEW
SHOWERS TOMORROW...WITH BULK OF THESE FOCUSING ALONG THE BOUNDARY AS
IT LIFTS NORTH ACROSS THE AREA LATE TOMORROW AFTERNOON THROUGH
TOMORROW NIGHT. OTHERWISE...THIS NEXT TROUGH WILL BRING WET WEATHER
BACK TO THE AREA MONDAY AND TUESDAY AS IT CROSSES THE EASTERN GREAT
BASIN.

WILL MAKE MINOR UPDATES MAINLY TO DECREASE POP/SKY FOR THE REMAINDER
OF THE NIGHT.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE VALID TAF
PERIOD. NORTH WINDS WILL TRANSITION BACK TO SOUTH BETWEEN 04-05Z.

&&

.SLC WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
UT...NONE.
WY...NONE.
