Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
1012 PM MDT Wed May 23 2018

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure aloft will build over the region
Thursday into Friday. The next Pacific storm system will begin to
impact the area Saturday and remain in place through early next


.DISCUSSION...Convection from this afternoon and evening has
quickly diminished after sunset across the area. A few showers may
continue along the Idaho/Utah into the early overnight hours.

High pressure will build into the area Thursday into Friday as an
upper level low begins to cut off across the Southwest. This low
will remain nearly stationary over the Great Basin this weekend
into early next week before finally ejecting Tuesday. While this
may keep unsettled conditions across the area Saturday into early
next week...current model trends do not indicate the Memorial Day
Weekend will be a washout across Utah.

Updated the forecast to decrease pops to better match current
conditions. No additional updates are anticipated.


.AVIATION...Southerly winds will continue at the SLC terminal
through the overnight hours. No operational impacts are expected.
