.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The smoke plume from the Brian Head Fire is affecting southern
Utah this morning, and should shift northeast into central Utah
this afternoon, reaching the Salt Lake valley and Western Uinta
Basin by late tonight. Locally poor air quality and reduced
visibilities will result from the increase in smoke.

It will remain very warm and dry today. Wind gusts will increase
across most of west central, central and south central Utah to
provide critical fire weather conditions this afternoon and

Isolated thunderstorms are forecast today. In addition to the
threat of starting new fires due to lightning, they will bring the
threat of locally gusty and erratic winds.

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...Tuesday through Sunday

Critical fire weather conditions will be possible across central
and eastern Utah Tuesday and southern Utah Wendesday due to a
combination of gusty winds and low RH.

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

conditions according to standard operating procedures.
