SALT LAKE CITY FIRE WEATHER OFFICE...SMOKE MANAGEMENT FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UTAH
1011 AM MDT SAT MAY 19 2018......Struthwolf

.DISCUSSION...A weak ridge of high pressure will prevail over
northern areas today with light transport winds which will result in
overall poor Clearing Index (CI) values. Farther south the transport
winds are nearing 10 mph which combined with a fairly deep mixing
height will result in good to excellent CIs.

A trough moving into the western Great Basin Sunday into the middle
of next week will cause southerly transport winds to increase
and bring good to excellent CI to the entire area through Wednesday.
