Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT

.SYNOPSIS...An increasingly warm southwesterly flow aloft will
persist across the area through Wednesday. A Pacific Northwest
storm system will bring much cooler temperatures for the latter
half of the week.


.DISCUSSION...High clouds advancing across Nevada this evening are
maintaining their integrity with no signs of dissipating. Have
increased cloud cover for the western half of the CWA for after
midnight. Probably should have covered the entire CWA with high
clouds but there is slight chance they will thin as they move into
eastern Utah.

Several record low temperatures were recorded in this extremely
dry air mass over the area this morning. However, despite the
high clouds coming over the CWA tonight, temperatures at Bryce,
Cedar City and Salt Lake City have already fallen to within a few
degrees of their predicted lows. Have lowered temps at these
locations as well as several others as feel there will be a few
more hours of radiational cooling before they level off under the
incoming cloud shield.

Rest of package looks in pretty good shape.


.AVIATION...The SLC terminal will see VFR conditions throughout the
TAF period. Southeast winds are expected through tonight with
winds ramping up after about 13-14Z Wednesday with gusts over 25
