Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
1124 AM MST Mon Feb 20 2017

.SYNOPSIS...A mild southwest flow will develop over Utah today and
continue through Tuesday. A cold front Tuesday night will usher in
a period of cold unsettled weather through the end of the week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...A mid level ridge axis has shifted east of the
forecast area this morning, allowing a moist and mild
southwesterly flow to overspread the region. Warm advection which
brought areas of light rain and high elevation snow earlier this
morning has shifted northward into southern ID. An upstream wave
is forecast to lift through northern UT this afternoon and
evening, bringing another round of valley rain and mountain snow.
The majority of valley rain will fall north of I-80 across areas
favored in southwesterly flow, as well as the higher terrain
further south into the central and southern Wasatch. Will update
to remove morning wording and adjust PoPs based on radar trends,
but overall going forecast seems to handle the short term concerns
well.

&&

.AVIATION...Gusty south winds will continue at the SLC terminal
through the afternoon. Showers are expected to develop late this
afternoon.

&&

.SLC WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
UT...None.
WY...None.
