This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central Utah...
northern Utah...southern Utah...southwest Utah and southwest
Wyoming.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Critical fire weather conditions will develop once again today
across all but far southern and southeast Utah due to gusty winds
and very low humidity values.

A multi day heatwave will continue today with temperatures
remaining around 15 to 20 degrees above climatological normals
for mid June. Record breaking temperatures remain in the forecast
for many locations. This will increase the risk of heat related
illnesses.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Well above normal temperatures are forecast to continue across
Utah and southwest Wyoming through Saturday, with the most
extreme heat shifting to central and southern Utah through the
week.

Isolated thunderstorms are possible across southern Utah from
Wednesday through Saturday. These will be capable of causing gusty
outflow winds and may increase the potential for new fire starts.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be needed. Please relay any information
about observed severe weather to the NWS while following all
local, state, and CDC guidelines.
