Forecast Discussion

000 FXUS65 KSLC 191001 AFDSLC Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT 401 AM MDT Fri Apr 19 2019 .SYNOPSIS...A mild southwesterly flow will bring a warming trend today, with above average temperatures continuing through Saturday. A mild storm system will cross the state late Saturday through Monday, followed by high pressure for the middle of next week. && .SHORT TERM (Through 00Z Tuesday)...Early morning satellite imagery and objective analysis depict a mid level ridge centered over the forecast area resulting in clear skies. Further upstream an upper low is noted spinning off the southern CA coast, while a positively tilted shortwave trough is noted off the Pacific Northwest coast. The mid level ridge axis is forecast to shift east today allowing southwesterly flow to overspread the forecast area by this afternoon. This should allow for deep mixing, with max temperatures warming into the mid to upper 70s from the Wasatch Front southward to Cedar City, and upper 80s around the St George area, which will be roughly 10 to 15 degrees above climo. The upstream troughs are forecast to move inland over the weekend into early next week impacting the forecast area. Southwesterly flow will prevail Saturday maintaining above normal temperatures, however the decaying upper low off the southern CA coast is expected to eject northeastward across the area during the afternoon. This will bring an increase in cloud cover which may limit warming just a bit, as well as the potential for terrain based convection mainly east of the I-15 corridor. The trough off the Pacific Northwest coast will gradually translate eastward across the region Sunday through Monday. This will knock temperatures back down to near climo, as well as bring showers and scattered thunderstorms to much of the forecast area. Have trended PoPs upward another 10-20 percent Sunday through Monday, primarily during the afternoon and evening hours as precipitation will likely be largely convective with the upper cold pool situated overhead. Snow levels will generally remain above 8 kft with any appreciable accumulation likely remaining above 9 kft. .LONG TERM (After 00Z Tuesday)...Early in ...
