NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
400 PM MDT THU JUL 28 2016

...RED FLAG WARNING FROM NOON FRIDAY TO 10 PM MDT SATURDAY FOR
UTZ492-493-495-497-498 FOR MAINLY DRY THUNDERSTORMS AND GUSTY OUTFLOW
WINDS...

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH FROM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING
FOR UTZ478>484-488-489 FOR MAINLY DRY THUNDERSTORMS AND GUSTY OUTFLOW
WINDS...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...DRY AND HOT CONDITIONS WILL YIELD TO
AN INCREASE IN GUSTY THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE ACROSS CENTRAL AND
SOUTHERN UTAH TOMORROW...AND MUCH OF THE AREA SATURDAY. THIS
HAS PROMPTED NUMEROUS RED FLAG WARNINGS AND FIRE WEATHER WATCHES
ACROSS THE REGION.

.DISCUSSION...PRIMARY CONCERNS REVOLVE AROUND NEW STARTS DUE TO
LIGHTNING DURING THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. A RED FLAG WARNING HAS BEEN
ISSUED FOR PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN UTAH FRIDAY AND SATURDAY,
AND A FIRE WEATHER WATCH HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR NORTHERN UTAH SATURDAY.

YESTERDAY`S ERC VALUES WERE ABOVE THE 90TH PERCENTILE FOR CENTRAL
AND NORTHERN UTAH, WITH AREAS GREATER THAN THE 80TH PERCENTILE
ACROSS SOUTHWEST UTAH.

LIGHTNING WILL BE MOST LIKELY ACROSS ZONE 496 TODAY, SNEAKING
INTO 498 BY EVENING. A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IS EXPECTED FOR
TOMORROW WITH THE THREAT INCLUDING MUCH OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN
UTAH. SATURDAY THIS THREAT INCLUDES MUCH OF UTAH. MANY OF THE
THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTAIN LITTLE RAINFALL, BUT GUSTY AND ERRATIC
WINDS. THIS COMBINATION WILL NOT ONLY SUPPORT NEW FIRES, BUT ALSO
LEAD TO EXPLOSIVE FIRE GROWTH POTENTIAL.

OTHERWISE HOT CONDITIONS WILL BEGIN TO RECEDE THIS WEEKEND DUE TO
THE GREATER COVERAGE OF CONVECTION. THE SAME CAN BE SAID ABOUT RH
VALUES, VERY DRY TODAY WILL TREND A BIT MORE MOIST EACH COMING DAY
THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

***THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY STRONG GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS***
***ALL WINDS ARE 20 FOOT...10-MINUTE AVERAGES***
