The current pattern of unsettled weather pattern with a trough
over the western CONUS will continue through Friday. There will
be a hiatus Saturday into Sunday with a weak ridge moving in
between systems but another trough returns early next week.
Discussion A stretched out deformation zone is currently over
northern utah but will continue to weaken and narrow as the low
over south dakota moves east and the new low pressure system
develops over southern nevada later today. The easterly flow has
increased over uintah county wyoming already this morning as high
pressure filters south into wyoming. Have increased the winds for
sw wyoming for today into tonight.
The combination of the easterly flow at mid levels and the
deformation zone weakening will provide a lesser threat to rain
today and tonight across northern utah. However, due to some
instability as a result of the colder 500mb temps, can't rule out
some showers developing over the mountains and drifting westward
across wasatch front from salt lake city northward. Have lowered
Farther south, the developing low pressure system near las vegas|
will begin to create upward lift over the southwest corner of utah
this afternoon. Have increased pops over that area for later today
and tonight as upslope flow develops.
Aviation Light rain over near the slc terminal expected
through early afternoon. Ceilings in precip will range between
1500-2500 feet through about midday, otherwise ceilings near 5000
ft agl or higher expected by 22z. Winds could become variable at
speeds up to 15 mph tonight as eddy effects take hold from
downsloping easterly winds in the slc vicinity.

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.
