This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Showers and thunderstorms will increase in coverage today as a
disturbance lifts across the region. Gusty winds and frequent
lightning will be the main concerns but a better chance of brief
heavy rain could occur with a few storms. Storm activity will
favor the higher terrain this morning before drifting into the
surrounding valleys after noon. Isolated showers will persist
overnight. Temperatures will be cooler, yet still mild as a result
of increased clouds and showers.

Warm temperatures during the day and overnight will continue the
rapid snowmelt. Some rivers will rise to, or remain above bank
level resulting in bothersome low-land flooding.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will develop on
Tuesday, favoring areas north of Interstate 70, as another
disturbance moves through. Again, gusty winds, frequent lightning,
and brief heavy rain will all be possible with storms.

Drier west to northwest flow will return by midweek resulting in
breezy and warmer conditions, elevating fire weather concerns by
Thursday. Rivers will continue to run high due to warmer
temperatures and increased snowmelt.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
