.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will maintain hot and dry conditions
through much of the remainder of the week. This high will move
east late in the week allowing moisture to slowly increase from
the south Friday through the upcoming weekend.


.DISCUSSION...The upper level high is re-centering over the
western Great Basin this evening with the weak downstream trof
crossing Ut at this time. This trof is sending drier air into the
CWA with precipitable water imagery showing the drying already
pushing across ern and srn Ut. Convection has rapidly died off in
the last couple of hours and the few weak lingering cells over the
south and east should dissipate shortly.

Temps were hot across the CWA again today with the high of 104 at
SLC the warmest reading so far this year. It was still shy of the
record of 107 for the date however, which happens to be the
warmest temperature ever recorded at SLC.

This drying should encompass the entire CWA Wed and much of the
area Thu with continued hot temperatures.

Models still indicate the high will shift east towards the end of
the week opening the door for moisture to move back north into the

Updated earlier to remove most pops and reduce sky cover for
tonight. Will update again to remove the rest of the pops and most
of the clouds for the night shortly.


.AVIATION...Light and variable winds at KSLC will become
southeasterly by 04z.
