Synopsis A couple of weather disturbances moving through the
northern rockies today will nudge a dry front across northern and
central utah. Cooler temperatures will follow the front for the
early part of the week. A plume of moisture will make a brief return
Short term (through 00z Thursday) The large scale pattern this
morning consists of a broad ridge centered near 145w with a west-
northwesterly flow aloft extending into utah. A couple of shortwave
disturbances, one currently over the northern rockies and another
over the pacific northwest, are embedded within a mean trough which
is moving across the northwestern conus. Precipitable water values
remain generally in the 0.6-0.75 inch range across most valleys.
Skies are mostly clear this morning with just a few patches of high
clouds drifting through central utah.
The aforementioned disturbances will push a dry cold front through
northern utah today, with the front stalling out over central utah
this evening. Winds will increase on both sides of the front, but
especially across portions of northern utah and the northeastern
through east-central valleys given a westerly mslp gradient and 20-
35kt 700mb flow this afternoon. Although afternoon MAX temperatures
are not expected to change significantly from yesterday's values,
overnight mins tonight and afternoon maxes tomorrow will be
noticeably cooler across northern utah and southwest wyoming.
The ridge will shift eastward through the early part of the week and
re-center itself over arizona by midweek. A southerly flow along the
ca az border and through southern nevada will draw existing moisture
from over and around the gulf of california and bring it northward
and into southern utah by Wednesday. This moisture is expected to
lead to a return of convective activity around midweek.
Long term (after 00z Thursday) By Thursday, the ridge axis is
expected to move back over utah, resulting in a light and generally
westerly flow aloft. This should cut off the moisture tap, but
moisture lingering over the forecast area will result in some
afternoon evening convection over the higher terrain for the latter|
part of the upcoming work week.
A weak trough moving over the ridge is progged to flatten it
Thursday night into early Friday. Behind the exiting wave, global
models indicate the ridge will reamplify, with the axis moving west
of the forecast area. This orientation of the ridge would dry out
the airmass over the area, resulting in decreasing chances of
convection over the weekend. The influence of the ridge should keep
temperatures near to just above seasonal normals through the long
Aviation The slc terminal will seeVFR conditions throughout the
day with mostly clear skies. Southeast winds are expected to shift
to the northwest with the passage of a dry cold front between 17z
Fire weather A dry cold front will push through northern utah
today before stalling over central utah as a trough crosses the
northern rockies. Winds will increase near the front which, combined
with low humidities in place, will lead to hazardous fire weather
conditions today. Localized areas of gusty winds will continue
tomorrow across portions of eastern utah which will continue to
produce isolated hazardous fire weather conditions. The cold front
will bring cooler temperatures to northern utah later today through
Monday. High pressure will then build over the area midweek, but
moisture will increase from the south leading to the return of

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.
