This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Isolated showers will linger across the north this morning, with
storms developing over the higher terrain this afternoon. Storms
will be capable of gusty outflow winds and frequent lightning,
with small hail possible in the stronger storms.

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...Monday through Saturday

Showers and thunderstorms will increase in coverage Monday and
Tuesday as a few disturbances move through with an increase in
moisture. 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 high terrain initially
but impact surrounding valleys late in the day with a good chance
of nocturnal storms as well Monday night. Temperatures will be
cooler, yet still mild as a result of increased clouds and

Drier northwest to west flow will return by midweek with 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.
