This period of thunderstorm activity is, however, slowly dwindling. Observations of integrated precipitable water from the Salt Lake City airport show a gradual decline over the past two days, indicating a drying of the atmosphere that will lead to reduced thunderstorm activity the next couple of days.
Integrated precipitable water is the depth of water you would have if you condensed out all the water vapor in the atmospheric column above you. As can be seen in the plot above, we were running near or above 2.5 cm (1 inch) over during the past several days, with some higher peaks (the peaks are likely associated with thunderstorms or their outflows, which typically have higher water vapor contents). This morning, we are down to about 1.8 cm (0.75 inches), and that loss of moisture makes it more difficult to develop thunderstorms. Thus, there is a slight chance of thunderstorms today, mainly over the mountains.
