.DISCUSSION...HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL STRENGTHEN ACROSS THE REGION
OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. THE RESULT WILL BE FOR CLOUDS TO PUSH
NORTH OF UTAH WITH TEMPERATURES INCREASING/RH DECREASING HEADING INTO
THE WEEKEND. WINDS WILL ALSO INCREASE OUT OF THE SOUTHWEST FOR FRIDAY
AND SATURDAY AFTERNOONS.

CONCERNING CI VALUES AND RH VALUES BELOW 40 PERCENT...FOR TODAY RH
VALUES SHOULD DECREASE IN A SIMILAR MANNER TO WEDNESDAY. LOOKING AT
RH VALUES TO FALL BELOW 40 PERCENT AROUND 1400 THIS AFTERNOON. CI
VALUES WILL BE MARGINAL TODAY DUE TO STABLE CONDITIONS AND LIGHT
TRANSPORT WINDS. EXPECTING A BRIEF PERIOD BETWEEN 1400-1800 WHERE
SUFFICIENTLY LOW RH VALUES/AND CI VALUES ABOVE 400 WILL EXIST.

CONDITIONS WILL IMPROVE FRIDAY AS TRANSPORT WINDS INCREASE...
LEADING TO HIGHER CI VALUES AND RH VALUES DROPPING BELOW 40 PERCENT
EARLIER IN THE DAY. AT THIS POINT IT LOOKS LIKE FAVORABLE BURN

DEVELOPING AS EARLY AS 1100 FRIDAY MORNING. ALSO LOOKING AT
FAVORABLE BURN CONDITIONS WITH STRONGER WINDS AND LOWER RH VALUES
FOR SATURDAY.
