The low pressure is centered southwest of Ely, Nevada early this morning, and the projected path takes it northeastward across northern Utah, west central Wyoming and then up into eastern Montana. The models keep us in the drier wedge of air, but can't rule out an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon, and a chance of a couple of showers tomorrow. We will see breezy winds both today and tomorrow with speeds from mid resort to the top in the 25 to 35 mph range from the south- southwest today and more westerly tomorrow. We should have nice weather Wednesday through the end of the week.
