.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRIEFLY MOVE OVER THE AREA TODAY.
THE NEXT STORM SYSTEM WILL START TO MOVE INTO THE GREAT BASIN
TONIGHT AND MOVE SLOWLY EAST THROUGH TUESDAY. YET ANOTHER STORM

.DISCUSSION...SHORTWAVE RIDGING HAS BUILT ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA
THIS MORNING...BETWEEN A DEPARTING UPPER LOW OVER THE CENTRAL HIGH
PLAINS AND AN UPSTREAM TROUGH SITUATED ALONG THE PACIFIC COAST.
SUBSIDENCE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS RIDGE HAS ENDED PRECIPITATION
ACROSS NORTHERN UT/SOUTHWEST WY...WITH LINGERING STRATUS
ALONG/EAST OF THE WASATCH CREST ALSO SLOWLY ERODING. MEANWHILE MID
AND HIGH LEVEL MOISTURE ASSOCIATED WITH THE UPSTREAM TROUGH HAS
OVERSPREAD MUCH OF NV AND WILL INCREASE ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA
THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

THE UPSTREAM TROUGH IS FORECAST TO MOVE INLAND ACROSS THE GREAT
BASIN TONIGHT BEFORE CLOSING OFF AND SLOWLY TREKKING EAST ACROSS
THE FORECAST AREA MONDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT. PRECIPITATION
MONDAY WILL LIKELY BE MORE CONVECTIVE IN NATURE UNTIL THE LOW
CENTER PASSES...AT WHICH TIME A MORE WIDESPREAD REGION OF WRAP
AROUND PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO OVERSPREAD MUCH OF NORTHERN

UPDATED TO REMOVE LINGERING MORNING POPS ACROSS THE NORTH AND
REDUCE SKY COVER. OTHERWISE GOING FORECAST FOR TODAY LOOKS IN GOOD
SHAPE.
