For eastern Utah and western Colorado, here is the latest weather
synopsis

Dry and hot conditions continue today as high pressure slides overhead. In
doing so, moisture will be pushed a bit further eastward, with isolated to
scattered storms still possible this afternoon, but less coverage than
previous days. Storms look to favor the western Colorado high terrain with
gusty outflow winds and lightning the main concerns. Adding to the triple
digit heat felt in lower desert valleys of southeast and east-central Utah
as well as west-central Colorado, smoke from local wildfires and wildfires
over the western states will make skies a bit smoky or hazy depending on
your location. This hot and dry pattern looks to continue through mid week
with some hope for moisture late in the week as some moisture works in from
the southwest.
