.DISCUSSION...West to northwest flow aloft will mix down each
afternoon today and Thursday keeping transport winds strong enough
to keep clearing indices high. Transport winds drop off Friday and a
more stable airmass across the north will lower clearing indices
below 500 over northern Utah. The south stays unstable enough to
maintain better clearing indices on Friday even through transport
winds will be light there as well. Clearing indices improve again in
all areas on Saturday.
