Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
801 AM MDT Fri Jul 14 2017

.SYNOPSIS... A weak disturbance will continue to lift slowly
northward across Utah through tonight. High pressure will build
across the region for the weekend bringing hot temperatures.


.DISCUSSION...Only a few tweaks were made to the forecast and that
was to update the sky cover for this morning. The areas that have
a chance of showers and thunderstorms for this morning is in place
to cover that which may develop between about 11 am and noon.
Otherwise, expect quiet conditions this morning.

Ridge is building over the region but there remains a weak
deformation zone over central Utah which is expected to rotate
northeast this afternoon which will allow for a little more
convection over northern Utah this afternoon, but still rather
isolated and mostly tied to the terrain.

Low levels remain rather moist with dew points in the 40s and
lower 50s so hard pressed not to mention a threat of showers and
thunderstorms this afternoon and evening in most areas.


.AVIATION...Southeasterly winds at the SLC terminal will continue
through the morning then switch to northwesterly between 18-20Z.
There is a 30 percent chance of switching to northwest by
17Z. There is a 10 percent chance of outflow from nearby
thunderstorms crossing the airfield between about 23z and 05Z late
today and tonight.
