Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
959 PM MDT Tue Apr 25 2017

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure briefly builds across the region tonight
then gives way to a series of progressively colder systems through
the remainder of the week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...A more stable airmass has spread across Utah this
evening as a shortwave ridge builds into the area. Lingering showers
have mostly dissipated, although a few lower clouds remain in place
along and near the higher terrain of northern Utah and southwest
Wyoming. Otherwise, high clouds have started to spread into
northwest Utah ahead of the next trough which will impact the area
tomorrow. In the meantime, precipitation will increase tomorrow
morning and afternoon in a moist warm advection regime. Snow levels
will rise until the storm system pushes a cold front through the
area tomorrow evening.

Updated the forecast to reduce PoP/Sky for the rest of the evening.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR conditions are expected at the SLC terminal
through the night. Occasional CIGS near 7000ft are possible through
06z. Otherwise, southerly winds will prevail.

&&

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