FOR EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO, HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER
SYNOPSIS.

A LOW PRESSURE STORM SYSTEM APPROACHING FROM THE WEST, WILL RESULT
IN WARM SOUTHERLY WINDS ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. THE WARM AND DRY WINDS WILL ELEVATE THE FIRE DANGER ACROSS
MUCH OF THE REGION, WITH ANY OPEN BURNING STRONGLY DISCOURAGED.
AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL WARM TO 5 TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE
SEASONAL. THE CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BEGIN OVER
THE SOUTHWEST COLORADO MOUNTAINS BY LATE THIS AFTERNOON, SPREADING
TO MOST OF THE REMAINING FORECAST AREA TONIGHT, CONTINUING FRIDAY
AND INTO SATURDAY MORNING. SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL WILL BE POSSIBLE
OVER THE HIGHEST MOUNTAINS. DRIER AIR WILL MOVE IN BEHIND THE SYSTEM
FOR SATURDAY AFTERNOON.
