.SYNOPSIS...An upper trough will move east of Utah tonight. High 
pressure will return briefly on Sunday, followed by another storm
system for early in the upcoming week.


.DISCUSSION...The upper trough which brought widespread
precipitation to much of the forecast area today continues to
rotate eastward through the central Rockies this evening.
Subsidence in the wake of this departing wave has brought an end
to precipitation across all but the far southeast, and this
activity should be ending within the next hour or so. Mid level
ridging in the wake of this wave is forecast to build across the
region Sunday before the next in the recent series of waves digs
into the Great Basin late Sunday night through Monday, bringing
yet another round of valley rain and mountain snowfall. 

Updated earlier to remove PoPs across most areas for the remainder
of the night. 


.AVIATION...Northerly surface winds are expected to switch back to
the south at KSLC around 10Z, with a 30 percent chance these winds
remain northerly, or light and variable through the overnight
hours. VFR conditions are expected to prevail through the TAF
