Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT 959 AM MDT Mon Aug 3 2020
SYNOPSIS. The strong high pressure aloft over the Interior West will bring another day of hot and dry conditions today. A weather disturbance moving east across the northern Rockies tonight will bring a dry cold front to the area and drop temperatures back to more seasonal levels Tuesday.
DISCUSSION. An elongated mid level ridge axis remains situated along the US/Mexico border region, keeping monsoonal moisture suppressed well south across the lower desert of Arizona, while maintaining a hot and dry airmass across the forecast area. This will result in one more day of triple digit heat along the Wasatch Front today.
A shortwave trough currently crossing the Pacific Northwest will continue eastward across the northern Rockies through tonight, pushing a shallow, dry cold front southward into northern Utah. The combination of lower heights as the passing shortwave flattens the ridge, and weak cold advection associated with the passing boundary, will knock temperatures down closer to normal for Tuesday. Going heat headlines through this evening look in good shape and no updates are planned this morning.
AVIATION. Southerly winds at KSLC will switch to the northwest during the 18-19Z timeframe, while VFR conditions prevail through the TAF period.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
