Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
939 AM MDT Wed Apr 18 2018

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will prevail across the region today
before shifting east Thursday as a low pressure system moves
towards southern Utah. This low will track across southern Utah
Thursday night and across eastern Utah Friday. High pressure
returns for the weekend.

&&

.DISCUSSION...Mid level evident in objective analysis is centered
across the forecast area this morning. This feature will slowly
translate east over the next 24 hours as an upper low spinning off
the California coast moves inland. The next result will be a
warming trend through Thursday as southerly flow develops and
strengthens. In the near term a thin veil of cirrus is noted
spreading across northern Utah with otherwise tranquil weather
across the region. Updated to remove Hard Freeze Warning otherwise
going forecast looks in good shape.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR conditions are expected at the KSLC terminal
through the TAF period. Southeast surface winds currently in place
are expected to switch to the northwest between 20-22z, and may
be light and variable. A switch to the south is expected once
again by 03z.

&&

.SLC WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
UT...None.
WY...None.
