.SYNOPSIS...A series of progressively colder and energetic storm
systems will cross the region throughout the week.


.DISCUSSION...Warm advection precipitation is breaking out
rapidly across northern Utah this morning. Left exit region of jet
nosing into northern Utah aiding in the widespread lift resulting
in this increase shower activity. The cold advection at 700 and
500 mb moves in this afternoon as the flow aloft shifts to west
northwest. This also become a more favorable flow for orographics
to aid in increasing the precipitation threat. Have increased PoPs
across northern Utah this morning and afternoon.

Farther south, a thick band of cirrus is expected to prevail
across southern Utah throughout today. The cloud shield currently
stretches back to California and the eastern Pacific. Have
adjusted sky cover to mostly cloudy for the remainder of today.


.AVIATION...The SLC terminal is expected to have winds switch to the
west-northwest between 16Z and 18Z and may become gusty for a brief
period. Increasing shower activity through the day could make winds
erratic at times. Ceilings will lower through the day, likely
dropping below 7000 feet around 16-18Z, with a slight chance that
higher ceilings persist past 18Z if showers stay to the north. MVFR
conditions are possible in the heavier showers after 18Z.
