Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
1024 PM MDT Fri Apr 20 2018

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will bring a warming and drying trend
for the upcoming weekend, with a weak storm system brushing
northern Utah early next week.


.DISCUSSION...Evening satellite imagery and objective analysis
depict an upper low slowly translating out of the central Rockies
and into the High Plains region, while shortwave ridging in the
wake of this feature builds across the eastern Great Basin.
Moisture wrapping around the back side of the departing low
continues to bring light snow to the north slope of the Uintas
with occasional showers this evening also being noted across the
Uinta Basin and perhaps points south. As subsidence associated
with the upstream ridge continues to overspread the forecast area
should continue to see any lingering precip threat trend downward
into the overnight hours. As the upstream ridge builds into the
region expect a warming trend through the upcoming weekend.
Updated to tweak PoP/Temp/Wind grids through the
evening/overnight hours, otherwise going forecast looks in good


.AVIATION...Southerly winds and VFR conditions will prevail
through the overnight hours and into Saturday morning.
