846 pm mdt Tue mar 19 2019
High pressure across the region will exit to our east late
tonight. A pacific storm system will bring low elevation rain and
mountain snow across much of southern and central utah late
Wednesday through Friday. After brief ridging late Friday into
Saturday, another pacific storm system will bring widespread
precipitation across the state.
Discussion A high amplitude mid level ridge remains centered
across western canada this evening. The forecast area remains
along the southern periphery of this ridge, where easterly flow is
maintaining a dry and stable airmass. A canopy of mid and high
level cloud cover associated with an upper trough approaching the
california coast has spread into southwest utah, otherwise clear
skies and light winds are the general rule across the forecast
area and will remain so into the overnight hours.
The ridge to the north will weaken and slide east late tonight
into the day Wednesday, allowing the upstream pacific trough to
spread inland across the great basin. Increasing diffluence aloft
associated with an upper jet lifting around the base of this
trough should bring showers to southern utah beginning Wednesday
afternoon, with an increase in coverage leading into Wednesday|
night. This trough will slowly meander across the region through
the remainder of the week bringing valley rain and mountain snow
to most of the forecast area.
In the near term going forecast looks in good shape and no updates
Aviation Vfr conditions with south winds are expected through
the overnight hours at kslc.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
