AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
1008 AM MST SAT FEB 6 2016

.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE WILL PREVAIL ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH
THE WEEKEND AND MUCH OF NEXT WEEK.

&&

.DISCUSSION...THE UPPER RIDGE AXIS REMAINS CENTERED TO OUR WEST
THIS MORNING WITH A NWLY FLOW ALOFT OVER THE CWA. THE SHORT WAVE
PASSING TO OUR NORTH TODAY HAS BROUGHT SOME HIGH CLOUDINESS BUT
THATS ABOUT IT.

SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE IS CENTERED OVER THE CWA THIS MORNING WITH
WELL DEVELOPED VALLEY INVERSIONS IN PLACE. FOG AND STRATUS IS MOST
EXTENSIVE IN THE SERN BASINS FROM AROUND I-70 S ACROSS LAKE
POWELL. THE OTHER MAIN AREA EXTENDS THROUGH THE SEVIER BASIN FROM
NEAR DELTA SOUTH TO MILFORD. PATCHES ALSO PERSIST IN THE SANPETE
VALLEY AND AROUND BRIGHAM CITY.

EXPECT MOST OF THIS TO BURN OFF BY AFTN ALTHO SOME AREAS IN SERN
AND SWRN UT MAY NOT. IT SHOULD REFORM TONIGHT IN PRETTY MUCH THE
SAME AREAS ALTHO VARIABLE MID AND HIGH CLOUDS CROSSING THE NRN CWA
COULD DISRUPT THIS SOMEWHAT THERE.

OTHERWISE EXPECT DRY CONDITIONS THROUGH THE WEEKEND AS THE UPPER
HIGH BUILDS STRONGLY TO OUR WEST. TEMPS SHOULD WARM OUTSIDE OF THE
VALLEY INVERSIONS BUT WILL REMAIN COLD IN THESE VALLEYS.

NO UPDATES PLANNED AT THIS TIME.

&&

.AVIATION...THE SLC TERMINAL WILL SEE VFR CONDITIONS THROUGHOUT
THE DAY WITH SOME SCATTERED CLOUDS. SOUTHEAST WINDS ARE EXPECTED
TO SHIFT TO THE NORTHWEST BETWEEN 19Z AND 21Z.

&&

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