FOR EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO, HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER
SYNOPSIS.

HIGH CLOUDS ARE INCREASING ACROSS THE REGION AHEAD OF AN UPPER LEVEL
LOW MOVING ONSHORE THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. AS THE LOW PROGRESSES
EASTWARD, THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER OUR FORECAST AREA WILL BE
DEAMPLIFIED, SHIFTING WINDS FROM THE NORTH TO WEST-SOUTHWESTERLY.
INCREASING CLOUD COVER TONIGHT WILL KEEP TEMPERATURES FROM DROPPING
BELOW NORMAL, FOR MOST OF THE REGION. SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS TOMORROW
WILL ALLOW DAYTIME TEMPERATURES TO RISE AT OR JUST ABOVE NORMAL FOR
MOST OF THE REGION ON SATURDAY. THE WEATHER DISTURBANCE OFF THE
COAST WILL STAY NORTH OF OUR REGION, BRINING MINIMAL POTENTIAL FOR
SHOWERS OTHER THAN ISOLATED LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS POSSIBLE FOR THE
NORTHERN MOUNTAINS. HIGH PRESSURE WILL RETURN BY SUNDAY, BRINGING
MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AND WARMER TEMPERATURES.
