Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah
905 PM MDT Tue Oct 25 2016

Synopsis...building high pressure aloft across the Great Basin
will bring dry and warm conditions to the region for the middle
of the week. The next weather disturbance to impact Utah and
southwest Wyoming will arrive Friday, with another impacting the
area Sunday into Monday.


Discussion...the clouds across much of the County Warning Area have dissipated
this evening save some along the higher terrain between Boulder
Mountain and Soldier Summit. Consequently, have improved the sky
forecast for the overnight period for most of the area except the
aforementioned area.

The rest of the forecast looks in good shape as the ridge is
building and most clouds trying to advance from central Nevada are
dissipating as they move east. Temperatures are forecast to cool
to several degrees below last nights levels and this looks good
with respect to the clear skies expected through the night.


Aviation...winds at the slc terminal are expected to remain
southeast through tonight and up until about 21z but could remain
southeast until 23z before shifting to the northwest. VFR
conditions will prevail through the taf period.
