Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT 320 PM MDT Tue Sep 29 2020
SYNOPSIS. High pressure over the region will result in dry and warm weather persisting through the upcoming weekend.
SHORT TERM (Through 12Z Friday). High pressure centered over northern California and the western Great Basin will remain in place for the remainder of the week. This will maintain dry northwesterly flow in place across the forecast area, with temperatures running 5-10 degrees above average every day. The light winds and clear skies will at least allow for excellent cooling at night.
LONG TERM (After 12Z Friday). The long term forecast discussion continues to be a broken record on repeat as high pressure is expected to dominate for the next 7 days (at least). A mean ridge will remain in place over the Western U.S., bringing dry and largely clear conditions across the eastern Great Basin. Fortunately, as we find ourselves on the eastern periphery of the ridge, north to northwesterly flow aloft will keep the airmass from warming too significantly, therefore, should see daytime high temperatures level off around 10 degrees above average.
More ensemble members are hopping on board with a potential precipitation event for the SLC area by the October 11-13 timeframe, however, it is still far too early to be calling any shots with this potential event.
AVIATION. The SLC terminal will see VFR conditions throughout the day with mostly clear skies. Northwest winds are expected to shift to the southeast by 03Z, then back to the northwest between 17Z and 19Z Wednesday.
FIRE WEATHER. High pressure will remain in place across California and the western Great Basin at least through the upcoming weekend and into early next week. This will maintain above average temperatures, and very dry conditions for the foreseeable future. Winds will remain light in this pattern with only diurnal terrain driven winds.
