THROUGH TOMORROW MAINTAINING ELEVATED THUNDERSTORM AND WETTING
RAIN POTENTIAL. DRIER AIR WILL BEGIN TO MOVE INTO THE SOUTHWEST
LATE TOMORROW WITH A NET DRYING TREND EXPECTED FOR THIS WEEKEND.

.DISCUSSION...DEEP MONSOONAL MOISTURE ENCOMPASSES THE DISTRICT
AND WILL REMAIN IN PLACE FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS BEFORE A DRIER
AIRMASS BEGINS TO PUNCH INTO THE SOUTHWEST. CURRENTLY WATCHING A
WAVE OVER SOUTHERN NEVADA LIFTING NORTHEAST THAT WILL HAVE THE
POTENTIAL TO MAINTAIN ELEVATED WETTING RAIN POTENTIAL TONIGHT FOR
CENTRAL AND NORTHERN UTAH...BUT MOST STORMS CURRENTLY ACROSS THE
SOUTH SHOULD BEGIN TO DISSIPATE PER NORM WITH SUNSET. REGARDLESS
OF ANY OVERNIGHT RAIN RH HUMIDITY WILL BE EXCELLENT TONIGHT. A
MORE SIGNIFICANT DRYING TREND WILL SET IN FOR SATURDAY AND SUNDAY
AS THE DEEPEST MOISTURE IS SHUNTED EAST...BUT ISOLATED STORMS WILL
REMAIN POSSIBLE OVER THE TERRAIN AGAIN THIS WEEKEND. HIGH PRESSURE
BULGING WEST OF THE STATE NEXT WEEK WILL KEEP MOST ALL OF THE
DISTRICT WITHIN A SOMEWHAT DRY NORTHWESTERLY FLOW...WITH GENERALLY
ISOLATED TERRAIN DRIVEN STORMS AND MINIMUM POTENTIAL OF WETTING
RAINS EACH AFTERNOON.
