FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR UTAH
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
321 PM MDT TUE AUG 23 2016

...RED FLAG WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH 9PM FOR ZONE 479...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...MOISTURE OVER CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PORTIONS
OF THE FIRE DISTRICT WILL GRADUALLY GET DISPLACED BY A DRYING NORTHWEST
FLOW TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY. THE FLOW ALOFT BECOMES SOUTHWEST AGAIN BY
THURSDAY OPENING THE DOOR FOR MOISTURE TO RETURN NORTHWARD. BY SUNDAY A
DRIER WESTERLY FLOW RETURNS WITH NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES.

.DISCUSSION...ANOTHER COLD FRONT IS MOVING ACROSS NORTHERN UTAH
THIS AFTERNOON BRINGING IN SOMEWHAT DRIER AIR ACROSS THE REGION
ALONG WITH GUSTY WINDS. THE WASATCH MOUNTAINS (ZONE 479) IS
CURRENTLY SEEING RFW CONDITIONS AND SHOULD CONTINUE TO HAVE LOW RH
AND GUSTY WINDS THROUGH EARLY THIS EVENING. THEREFORE, CURRENT RFW
REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH 9PM.

MOISTURE CONTINUES TO PREVAIL ACROSS CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN UTAH
ALTHOUGH DRYING IS BEGINNING TO TAKE PLACE ACROSS WEST CENTRAL
UTAH THIS AFTERNOON. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND WET THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED OVER THE SOUTHERN MOUNTAINS AND ADJACENT VALLEYS INTO
THIS EVENING. PW VALUES ARE NEAR AN INCH OVER DIXIE AND WITH A 300
MB VORTICITY MAX HEADED ACROSS SOUTHWEST UTAH THIS EVENING HAVE
BOOSTED POPS SOME TO HIGH CHANCE.

IN THE WAKE OF THIS VORTICITY MAX (DISTURBANCE) A DRIER NORTHWEST
FLOW IS EXPECTED TO PUSH ACROSS THE FIRE DISTRICT WEDNESDAY. OTHER
THAN ISOLATED MOUNTAIN THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE SOUTHERN MOUNTAINS
WEDNESDAY IT SHOULD BE A MORE QUIET DAY.

ANOTHER SHORTWAVE DROPPING SOUTHWARD IN THE MAIN TROUGH OVER THE
NORTHERN ROCKIES WILL MOVE SOUTHWARD AND CAUSE THE TROUGH TO DIG
SOUTHWEST INTO THE WESTERN GREAT BASIN THURSDAY INTO SATURDAY WHICH
WILL TURN THE FLOW SOUTHWESTERLY ACROSS UTAH OPENING THE DOOR FOR
MOISTURE TO SEEP NORTHWARD ACROSS AT LEAST SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL
UTAH AND INTO SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF NORTHERN UTAH. DRIER CONDITIONS
WILL FOLLOW FOR SUNDAY INTO NEXT WEEK AS THE FLOW TURNS MORE
WESTERLY.


***THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY STRONG GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS***
***ALL WINDS ARE 20 FOOT...10-MINUTE AVERAGES***
