Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
858 AM MST Wed Nov 30 2016

.SYNOPSIS...A cold northerly flow over the area today will give
way to weak high pressure this afternoon. The next storm system
will begin to spread into northern Utah tonight and slowly cross
the region Thursday through Friday morning.


.DISCUSSION...Some isolated lingering snow showers drifting across
far Northern Utah this morning per radar and satellite analysis.
Low to mid clouds are filling in from the north and west along
the northern Wasatch front with low level moisture present
associated with warm advection across mainly northern portions of
the county warning area. Westerly flow aloft should keep some
showers going through the northern Wasatch mountains with an
upslope flow pattern through mid day. A rather moist low cloud
layer near ridge tops with 700mb temperatures from -10C to -12C
have the potential for minimal rime ice accumulation.

Made some morning updates to the PoPs and sky cover for most of
the county warning area to better accommodate current conditions.
Cloud cover may keep temperatures from warming up to what is
currently forecasted, but not enough to warrant an update at this


.AVIATION...The SLC terminal will see VFR conditions throughout the
day with cigs staying above 6000 ft AGL. Southerly winds are
expected through the daytime hours, though there is a 20 percent
chance of a late shift to the northwest between 21Z and 23Z.
