.DISCUSSION...Good to excellent Clearing Index values are expected
through this week due to elevated mixing heights and unstable air
mass. There will be a few pockets across southern Utah where the CI
could be below 500 but with scattered showers and thunderstorms
around each afternoon, these areas will be few and far between.
