This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Widespread critical fire weather conditions redevelop this
afternoon due to dry surface conditions and gusty winds developing
during peak heating. Meanwhile, relative humidity remains
dangerously low and drought stressed vegetation extremely dry.
Temperatures will remain hot, but not as extreme as last week.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

After a period of dry weather, thunderstorms return over the
higher terrain during the latter half of the week. Gusty outflow
winds and lightning are the primary concerns, as initial storm
development will produce minimal rain reaching the ground. Expect
an increase in coverage Thursday into Friday as additional
moisture is pumped into the region.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
