Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
937 PM MST Mon Jan 16 2017

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure aloft will settle over the Great Basin
for the first half of the week. A return to an active weather
pattern will occur late in the week.


.DISCUSSION...A positively tilted mid level ridge extending from
the CA coast inland across the northern Great Basin and into the
northern Rockies will maintain dry and stable conditions across
the forecast area through Tuesday. Strong valley inversions remain
in place, and stratus which earlier dissipated has once again
begun to redevelop and expand this evening. May see light snow
fall from this stratus at times overnight into the morning
Tuesday. Updated earlier to adjust sky cover, and will make
adjustments to overnight temperatures where stratus has already
developed. Otherwise going forecast looks in good shape.


.AVIATION...MVFR cigs will prevail at KSLC through the overnight
hours. Winds will likely remain northerly through the night with a
40 percent chance they become light southerly after 06z.
