Synopsis High pressure aloft will expand across the great
basin tonight through Wednesday. The next pacific storm system
will bring a cold and wet end to march late in the week.

Discussion The axis of the upper trough along the utah/colorado
border will continue east today. A increasingly dry/stable air
mass will follow the exiting trough as the upper ridge currently
along the west coast expands east across the great basin tonight
through Wednesday.

The next storm system to impact utah will originate from a
shortwave currently over the western gulf of alaska. This feature
will translate east, reaching the pacific northwest coast
Wednesday night, from there this feature driven by strong jet
support will turn hard to the southeast and deepen as it settles
into the western great basin late Thursday.

Both the 12z GFS and 00z ECMWF developed a closed circulation by
Thursday evening, with this circulation tracking slowly east
across the basin through Friday. A rather tight low-level
baroclinic zone associated with this upper level feature will
enter western utah late Thursday. Strong low-level cold advection
across southwest utah along with dynamic lift from the advancing
mid-level circulation and favorable upper divergence in the left
exit region of the jet should support widespread convective precip
across much of southern/central utah Thursday night, the northern
extent of this baroclinic zone over northern utah will see
somewhat less thermal advection, though as the upper low becomes
better developed the resultant easterly flow aloft will create
low-level convergence along the boundary and decent lift to
support widespread precip.

The heaviest precip Friday will remain in the best synoptic-scale
lift near the center of the upper low over the southern/central
portions of the state. Up north a deepening east-northeast flow
aloft will create downsloping west of the wasatch range which
should result in significantly less precip as the day progresses.

Precip will wind down Friday night as the center of the upper low
moves east of the four corners region.

Issued an earlier update to reduce cloud cover and pops today.

Remainder of the forecast packages looks good at this time.

Aviation Northerly winds will remain in place at the kslc
terminal through today. Ceilings near 5000-5500 feet agl are
expected to gradually diminish through 16-17z.

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.
