Synopsis Strong high pressure aloft building into the great
basin will bring a substantial warming and drying trend to utah
through the first half of the upcoming weekend. A weak storm
system will bring cooler and unsettled weather Sunday into early
Short term (through 00z Monday) An expansive mid level ridge
currently centered along the pacific coast will slowly build
inland today, with the axis crossing the forecast area tonight.
The resultant warming trend will allow MAX temperatures to reach
or slightly exceed climatological norms this afternoon across most
areas, then surge 15 degrees or so above climo Friday as the ridge
axis shifts east, and a deep layer southwesterly flow develops
across the region. This will result in the warmest day of the year
thus far for most locations, with the wasatch front south along
the i-15 corridor reaching the mid 70s, and the st george area
expected to warm into the upper 80s.
The models have slowed the timing of the shortwave trough expected
this weekend, and now delay the associated frontal passage across
northern utah until Saturday night. This will allow for another
very mild day across the forecast area with MAX temperatures
slightly cooler than Friday, but still well above climo.
The aforementioned shortwave trough is forecast to slowly
translate into the region Saturday night into Sunday, with the
trough axis bisecting the state of utah by late Sunday afternoon.
Have bumped pops across most locations 20-30 percent for the|
Saturday night into Sunday timeframe, with snow levels generally
remaining in the 9-10 kft range as 700mb temps remain near 0c.
Long term (after 00z Monday) A slow moving, disorganized
spring trough will continue to move through the region Sunday
evening. The back edge of the trough will finally cross utah early
Tuesday... Bringing an end to the instability showers and
thunderstorms across the state.
The eastern pacific upper level ridge will build northeast into
the great basin by Wednesday. Northern utah will remain on the
northeastern flank of the ridge and subtle embedded disturbances
may initiate clouds or even a few showers each afternoon and
evening across mainly the higher terrain of utah. Temperatures
will gradually moderate with the wasatch front potentially seeing
temperatures approaching the mid-70s by next Thursday.
Aviation Southerly winds at the slc terminal will shift to the
northwest between 17-19z. Otherwise, mainly clear skies will be
the rule for the day.

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.
