A Ginormous Ridge

Meteorologists in Utah can take some time off as a ginormous ridge will dominate our weather through the week.  Below is the 12-hour forecast from last night's North American Ensemble Prediction System (NAEFS) showing the situation this morning, followed by the 120 hour forecast valid at 6 PM Friday.  There's very little change in the overall pattern with a high amplitude, long wave ridge firmly ensconced over the western U.S.

Looks like a good week to be in southern Utah if you are so fortunate.
