This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A passing disturbance will bring another round of afternoon
thunderstorms to northeast Utah and northwest Colorado, favoring
the higher terrain. Gusty winds will be the main threat, though
frequent lightning, small hail, and brief heavy rain will still
be possible. Activity will diminish after sunset or shortly after.
Rivers and creeks will continue to run high due to snowmelt for
much of the area.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

High pressure will build overhead on Monday and Tuesday, though
isolated storms will be possible across the northern mountains and
along the Continental Divide each afternoon. Localized red flag
conditions will be possible each afternoon through Wednesday due
to increased winds and low humidities, though fuels are not
critical. Showers and thunderstorms will increase in coverage each
afternoon from Wednesday onwards as the next system approaches
and begins to move through. Rivers and creeks will continue to run
high through early June due to snowmelt for much of the area.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
