Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT
1004 AM MDT Mon Jun 1 2020

.SYNOPSIS...Southwest flow will remain over the region today. A
weak cold front will cross northern and central Utah Tuesday,
with continued hot temperatures through the remainder of the week.


.DISCUSSION...Dry southwest flow remains across the region this
morning. Gusty south winds are expected to continue through the
day across most of the state. A shortwave will cross the Glacier
National Park area this evening bringing a weak cold front into
parts of northern Utah this evening. This front will gradually
cross the state tonight into Tuesday morning. While precipitation
is not expected with this front outside of maybe a stray
shower/thunderstorm near the Raft River range, temperatures are
expected to cool a few degrees Tuesday across northern Utah.

Heat risk will remain in the moderate/orange range for many
northern valley locations today. In addition, red flag warnings
continue for western and southwestern portions of the state. See
the fire weather discussion for more details.

Made subtle changes to add PoPs to the Raft Rivers and modify sky
grids to better match current trends. Otherwise, the current
forecast is on track and no additional updates are anticipated.


.AVIATION...Gusty southerly winds will remain in place at the KSLC
terminal through late afternoon. A 70% chance exists that winds will
switch to the northwest between 21-23z. VFR conditions will be
maintained under largely clear skies.


.FIRE WEATHER...Dry and windy conditions will remain in place
across Utah today, reaching critical levels across portions of
west central and southwest Utah. Red flag warnings remain in
effect for these areas.

A shallow cold front will push into northern Utah tonight,
leading to cooler temperatures across the north tomorrow.
Relatively dry conditions are expected to continue through the
next few days, although a few cumulus buildups will be possible
over the higher terrain midweek. A storm system off the southern
California coast will then cross the area late week, bringing some
moisture back to the area.


UT...Red Flag Warning until 9 PM MDT this evening for UTZ492-495.
