This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the western two thirds of
Utah and southwest Wyoming.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The smoke plume extending south and east from the Brian Head
wildfire will impact portions south-central and southeast Utah.
Locally poor air quality and reduced visibilities will result from
the increase in smoke.

Very hot temperatures will continue across Dixie today.
Temperatures there will be well into the triple digits. These hot
temperatures can be dangerous for people engaging in outdoor
activities or for those who do not have adequate cooling in their
homes or businesses.

Flows in the waterways of northern Utah and southwest Wyoming
remain fast and cold, and are still deadly. A person or pet can
drown in less than a minute in these waters.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Smoke from the Brian Head wildfire will continue to impact
portions of southern and central Utah through the outlook period.
Increasing winds, hot temperatures and low humidity will bring
hazardous fire weather conditions back to southwest Utah on
Monday.

Remember...waterways of northern Utah and southwest Wyoming will
continue to be dangerous with cold and fast flows expected
through the outlook period.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather spotters are encouraged to report significant weather
conditions according to standard operating procedures.
