Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
927 PM MDT Fri Mar 17 2017

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure over the region today will give way to a
very mild southwest flow on Saturday. A more active pattern is
expected to develop for the first part of next week.


.DISCUSSION...The ridge over the area has started to shift east
and its axis is now centered over far eastern Utah. Southwesterly
flow has developed at 700mb across much of Utah and should
strengthen tomorrow as a trough crosses the West Coast. Tomorrow
should be quite the warm day as winds would enhance mixing of an
already warm airmass. This will be followed by a series of weak
systems that will lift across northern Utah beginning on Sunday,
keeping a cold front draped across the far north at times for the
early part of next week.

No updates this evening.


.AVIATION...Southeasterly winds will settle into the SLC terminal
for the rest of the night under VFR conditions and thin high clouds.
