Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
853 AM MDT Sun Apr 16 2017

.SYNOPSIS...A warmer southwest flow today will be followed
by a weak weather disturbance impacting far northern Utah Monday.
A stronger storm system will impact much of Utah Tuesday through
early Wednesday. Another storm will cross the area Thursday into
Friday.

&&

.DISCUSSION...Variable high clouds and sunshine will prevail
across the CWA today. Temperatures will be about 5-10 degrees
above average for today and there will not be any precipitation,
so overall a pretty nice Easter Sunday. The only concern is the
surface high over the northern half of the CWA will create a low
level northerly flow which may keep temperatures from reaching
their full potential. However, a 1-3 degree change not sufficient
enough for an update.

As surface pressures fall across east central Nevada and far
west central Utah this afternoon, south winds will increase to
10-20 mph across southwest Utah valleys. Otherwise, rather
tranquil conditions are expected.

Current package looks in good shape, so no updates needed at this
time.

&&

.AVIATION...Operational weather concerns will remain minimal at the
KSLC terminal through the valid TAF period. Light southeast winds
currently in place will become a light northwest between 19-21z per
norm.

&&

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