Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
957 AM MDT Tue Jun 25 2019

.SYNOPSIS...A low pressure system along the Pacific coast will
maintain breezy and warm conditions across the forecast area
through the remainder of the work week.


.DISCUSSION...A wide span of high clouds are streaming across a
majority of Utah this morning downstream of a trough moving into
the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures this morning are already
creeping into the mid 70s and upper 60s in many locations, and
surpassing 80F in the St George area. Temperatures today are
expected to reach 90F along portions of the Wasatch Front for the
first time this year, including KSLC. Increasing southwest flow
aloft will continue the warming trend through the week.

Dry conditions are also expected to persist through the week. Some
weak mid-level moisture may allow for a few isolated high-based
showers or a dry thunderstorm to develop mainly in the Uinta
Mountains or Wasatch Plateau areas, coming from northeast Nevada.
The previous forecast increased the PoPs for late this afternoon
and evening for this very reason and this looks on track with
latest guidance as well. Only a few minor edits made this morning
to capture trends.


.AVIATION...Southeast winds will continue at the SLC terminal
through this morning and increase about midday, becoming more
southerly and gusty. Southerly winds are expected to continue
through this afternoon, although there is a 30 percent chance that
winds will shift to the northwest after 20-21Z. Although not
expecting any precip, high based convection cannot be ruled out
after 21Z creating gusty erratic winds. A return to southeast
winds is expected after 04z.
