Another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop across eastern Utah and western Colorado beginning around noon Tuesday. Gusty outflow winds, lightning, and small hail will all be possible with storms. The higher terrain will be favored for activity but many valleys areas will still have a good chance for a passing shower. Below is the simulated radar for Tuesday.

Simulated Radar: 5/22/18

The area of low pressure situated to our southwest will weaken and lift to the northeast on Wednesday. This will allow for conditions to gradually dry out across eastern Utah and western Colorado. A ridge of high pressure will slide overhead on Thursday and remain in place through Saturday. This will result in a drying and warming trend with temperatures climbing back to well above seasonal normals. Many valley locations will even jump back into the low 90s by Saturday. However, some moisture will remain trapped under the ridge, allowing for isolated to scattered orographic storms to develop each afternoon.
