   The upper-level shortwave trough that tracked over the Pacific
   Northwest and northern Rockies during the past couple of days will
   begin to weaken while slowly lifting east-northeast across the
   northern Plains. A stronger upper-level trough will approach the
   Pacific Northwest tomorrow with a westerly mid-level jet (35-50
   knots) preceding it and stretching across the Pacific Northwest and
   northern Rockies. The south/east progress of the surface cold front
   will slow with it likely becoming a stationary front across northern
   Utah and central Nevada.

   Elevated conditions may develop across portions of southwest Wyoming
   into northwest Colorado, but they should be confined to
   vegetation-sparse areas. Elevated conditions may also develop across
   portions southern Utah and northern Arizona. However, a weakening
   surface pressure gradient, lack of mid-level flow, and the
   possibility of high clouds moving northward preclude an elevated
   area at this time.
