Synopsis A mild westerly flow aloft will result in warmer
temperatures today. A weak cold front tonight will curb the
warming trend for tomorrow before high pressure rebuilds through
the middle of the week.
Discussion The forecast area is under a zonal flow this morning
on the front side of a relatively flat ridge centered off the
pacific coast. The flattening is due to a system moving over the
top of the ridge over oregon and idaho. Moisture from this system
is resulting in some lower to mid-level clouds over southwest
wyoming and near the utah idaho border, but impacts are otherwise
minimal. With this flow providing warm advection and some better
mixing, there will be noticeable warming in the temperatures today
compared to yesterday, with maxes running near or slightly above
As the system passes to our north, it is expected to bring a
shallow frontal boundary through tonight, curbing the warming
trend for all but southeast utah. Behind this, high pressure is
expected to build through the middle of the week, keeping things
dry and allowing the airmass to warm aloft. This will result in
very mild temperatures for the higher elevations but limited
mixing will make it so these temperatures are not fully realized|
in valley locations.
The next storm system is expected to impact the forecast area by
Thursday, but significant differences continue to exist among the
global models with regard to the strength of this system. The ec
has been consistent in showing a much colder and more moist system
than the gfs, which continues to show a system of limited impact.
No updates expected to the forecast this morning.
Aviation The slc terminal will seeVFR conditions throughout
the day with some scattered clouds. Southeast winds are expected
to shift to the northwest between 19z and 21z.

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.
