Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
845 PM MDT Mon Mar 19 2018

.SYNOPSIS...After a quiet start to the week, a wet and warm air
mass will move in for the latter half of the work week bringing
windy conditions, high snow levels, and widespread rain.


.DISCUSSION...Satellite showing most clouds and all weak showers
over the northern mountains have dissipated with sunset. Have
adjusted sky cover and PoPs accordingly.

Mid to high level clouds near the Nevada/Idaho/Oregon triple
point are expected to spread across the northern portions of the
CWA late tonight so current forecast of becoming mostly cloudy
late tonight is on track. Rest of package in good shape.

Cloud cover in general is expected to increase in general Tuesday
through Wednesday as a sub tropical tap of moisture spreads into
the Great Basin, initially at high levels, but will lower
Wednesday and Thursday and storm dynamics move into the region.


.AVIATION...No significant weather concerns tonight for the SLC
terminal. Southerly winds are expected to return by 03-04z. Clouds
are expected to increase late tonight into Tuesday morning, but
any CIGs will remain above 7000ft.
