PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ELKO NV
1220 AM PDT TUE MAY 3 2016

THIS IS AIR QUALITY AWARENESS WEEK. THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN
MORE ABOUT AIR QUALITY AND HOW IT AFFECTS YOUR HEALTH.

TODAY WE HIGHLIGHT THE CAUSES OF POOR AIR QUALITY. AIR QUALITY CAN
VARY DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH AIR POLLUTION IS PRODUCED IN YOUR
COMMUNITY AND HOW MUCH POLLUTION IS CARRIED INTO YOUR COMMUNITY BY
THE WIND AND BY WEATHER CONDITIONS. OZONE FORMS WHEN TWO GROUPS OF
KEY POLLUTANTS... NITROGEN OXIDES AND VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS...
COOK IN THE SUN.   PARTICLE POLLUTION CAN BE DIRECTLY EMITTED... FOR
EXAMPLE... IN SMOKE FROM A WOODSTOVE... BUT A LOT OF PARTICLES FORM
WHEN GASES REACT IN THE AIR. NITROGEN OXIDES AND SULFUR DIOXIDES
CONTRIBUTE TO PARTICLE FORMATION.

THESE OZONE AND PARTICLE FORMING POLLUTANTS COME FROM A WIDE VARIETY
OF SOURCES INCLUDING CARS... TRUCKS... BUSES... POWER PLANTS AND
INDUSTRIES. NATURAL SOURCES SUCH AS WILDFIRES AND DUSTSTORMS
CONTRIBUTE TO PARTICLE POLLUTION.  TREES AND OTHER VEGETATION ALSO
EMIT ORGANIC COMPOUNDS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO PARTICLE AND OZONE
POLLUTION.

WEATHER PLAYS A BIG ROLE IN THE LEVELS OF OZONE AND PARTICLE
POLLUTION IN YOUR COMMUNITY. SUNLIGHT AND HEAT PROMOTE OZONE
FORMATION. LIGHT WINDS AND TEMPERATURE INVERSIONS CAN KEEP POLLUTION
CONCENTRATED NEAR THE GROUND.  DEPENDING ON ITS DIRECTION, THE WIND
CAN BRING IN MORE POLLUTION... SOMETIMES FROM HUNDREDS OF MILES
AWAY. GEOGRAPHY CAN AFFECT POLLUTION LEVELS TOO.  MOUNTAIN RANGES
CAN PREVENT POLLUTION FROM DISPERSING.

TOMORROW WE WILL LEARN ABOUT THE HEALTH IMPACTS OF POOR AIR QUALITY.

...APRIL 2016 CLIMATOLOGICAL SUMMARY FOR NORTHEASTERN AND CENTRAL
NEVADA...

APRIL 1-7. HIGH PRESSURE BROUGHT GENERALLY DRY CONDITIONS AND A
WARMING TREND. THE ONLY FLY IN THE OINTMENT WAS A WEAK LOW
PRESSURE AREA THAT SNUCK IN UNDER THE RIDGE TO INCITE SOME
ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ON APRIL 3-4.

APRIL 8-13. THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF UPPER-LEVEL LOWS MOVED IN
FROM THE SOUTH ON THE 8TH TO BRING SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
FIRST TO CENTRAL NEVADA THEN AS MOISTURE PUSHED NORTH OVER THE
FOLLOWING DAY, ALL OF THE FORECAST AREA. A SECOND LOW FORMED OFF
BAJA CALIFORNIA, THEN QUICKLY MOVED INLAND ACROSS ARIZONA
PROVIDING AN 8-12 HOUR PERIOD OF EFFICIENT PACIFIC MOISTURE FETCH
FROM THE SOUTH. AS THE LOW MOVED EAST, THERE WAS EVEN SOME WRAP-
AROUND MOISTURE THAT SPREAD ACROSS NORTHERN NEVADA. THUNDERSTORMS
WERE STRONGEST ACROSS NORTHERN ELKO COUNTY AND EASTERN HUMBOLDT
COUNTY WHERE A COUPLE STORMS REACHED SEVERE LEVELS WITH ROTATION
NOTED. UNSETTLED WEATHER CONTINUED FOR A COUPLE MORE DAYS AS A LOW
PRESSURE CENTER CREPT SLOWLY EASTWARD IN A SPLIT FLOW ALOFT. SNOW
LEVELS THROUGHOUT THIS PERIOD WERE GENERALLY ABOVE 7500 FEET.

APRIL 14-15. A MUCH COLDER UPPER LEVEL LOW MOVED IN FROM THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST TO BRING A FEW MORE INCHES OF SNOW TO THE
VALLEYS. WINDS WERE GUSTY ALL AROUND BUT ESPECIALLY SOUTH OF
HIGHWAY 50 AS LOW PRESSURE MOVED SOUTH ALONG THE UTAH/NEVADA
BORDER ON THE 15TH.

APRIL 16-21. LOW PRESSURE MOVED EAST AND STAGNATED JUST EAST OF
THE 4-CORNERS AREA OF THE COUNTRY FOR A COUPLE DAYS BEFORE LIFTING
NORTH THEN NORTHEAST. THIS MOVEMENT ALLOWED A HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE
TO FORM OFF THE PACIFIC AND STRONGLY AMPLIFY BEFORE ENVELOPING THE
GREAT BASIN. TEMPERATURES SUBSTANTIALLY WARMED ALTHOUGH THE
INITIAL SLUGGISH MOVEMENT OF THE EXITING UPPER LOW ALLOWED FOR A
PROLONGED A NORTHERLY FLOW ACROSS EASTERN NEVADA THAT STUNTED THE
WARMING TREND EAST OF THE RUBY MOUNTAINS.

APRIL 22-24. THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF LOW PRESSURE SYSTEMS
SPIRALED OFF THE ALEUTIAN PERMA-LOW FEATURE AND BROUGHT
SIGNIFICANT RAIN AND SNOW TO THE STATE. THE FIRST SYSTEM DELIVERED
A FEW INCHES OF SNOW TO AREAS CLOSE TO THE RUBY MOUNTAINS AND SOME
OF THE FOOTHILLS OF ELKO COUNTY. HIGH WINDS ACROSS EAST CENTRAL
NEVADA BROUGHT DOWN A CHINA ELM TREE IN ELY (69 MPH WAS REPORTED
AT THE AIRPORT). A HALF-INCH TO ONE-INCH OF RAIN FELL IN THE
VALLEYS AS LOW PRESSURE DROPPED SOUTH WHILE STAYING EAST OF THE
SIERRA-NEVADA RANGE, PROVIDING A SIGNIFICANT WRAP-AROUND EFFECT
FOR NORTHERN ELKO COUNTY. SMALLER CREEKS AND STREAMS BEGAN TO
REACT TO SOME EXTRA SNOWMELT DUE TO THE RAIN ON SNOW EFFECT.

APRIL 25-26. AFTER A BRIEF BREAK, A SECOND SYSTEM TOOK A
SIMILAR TRACK EAST OF THE SIERRAS BUT THIS ONE WAS MUCH COLDER AND
EJECTED IN A MORE EASTERLY DIRECTION. HOWEVER THE WRAP-AROUND
EFFECT WAS STILL NOTABLE FOR NORTHEAST NEVADA. MOUNTAINS ACROSS
NORTHEAST AND EAST-CENTRAL NEVADA RECEIVED BETWEEN ONE AND TWO
FEET OF SNOW, INCLUDING THE JARBIDGE WILDERNESS. NEARBY WILDHORSE
RECEIVED 14 INCHES OF SNOW IN A 24-HOUR PERIOD. AT LEAST NINE
SITES ACROSS ELKO, WHITE PINE AND HUMBOLDT COUNTIES RECEIVED OVER
ONE INCH OF WATER-EQUIVALENT PRECIPITATION FROM THIS SECOND
SIGNIFICANT STORM.

APRIL 27-30. AS A BROAD TROUGH SAT OVER THE GREAT BASIN, TWO MORE
UPPER LEVEL LOWS DROPPED SOUTH OVER THE FORECAST AREA. THESE
LATE-MONTH STORMS BROUGHT SOME GUSTY WINDS AND MODEST AMOUNTS OF
RAIN AND SNOW COMPARED TO THE PREVIOUS TWO. HOWEVER IT BEGAN TO
RAISE MORE CONCERN FOR HIGH STREAM FLOWS DUE TO THE SATURATED
GROUND CONDITIONS.

THE TABLES BELOW SUMMARIZE THE WEATHER AT FOUR OF OUR AIRPORT
CLIMATE SITES DURING THE PERIOD. TEMPERATURES ARE IN DEGREES
FAHRENHEIT...WHILE PRECIPITATION AND SNOWFALL ARE IN INCHES.

...THIS IS AIR QUALITY AWARENESS WEEK...

THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT AIR QUALITY AND HOW IT AFFECTS
YOUR HEALTH. EACH DAY OF AIR QUALITY AWARENESS WEEK WILL FEATURE A UNIQUE
TOPIC RELEVANT TO EDUCATION AND PREPAREDNESS. TODAY WE HIGHLIGHT TWO TYPES
OF AIR POLLUTION: OZONE AND PARTICLE POLLUTION. THESE ARE TWO COMMON POLLUTANTS
FOUND IN MANY PARTS OF THE COUNTRY. OZONE IS A COLORLESS ODORLESS GAS. IT IS
THE SAME GAS THAT IS FOUND IN THE OZONE LAYER... HIGH IN THE EARTH`S STRATOSPHERE
WHERE IT PROTECTS US FROM THE SUNS ULTRAVIOLET ENERGY. BUT AT GROUND LEVEL...
WHERE WE LIVE... OZONE POLLUTION IS UNHEALTHY TO BREATHE.

PARTICLE POLLUTION OR AIRBORNE PARTICLE POLLUTION CONSISTS OF MICROSCOPIC
PARTICLES IN THE AIR.  DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIVE, IT CAN BE A PROBLEM IN THE
WINTER AND...OR... SUMMER. LIKE OZONE, PARTICLE POLLUTION IS NOT HEALTHY TO BREATHE.
THE PARTICLES ALSO CONTRIBUTE TO HAZE WHICH BLURS THE VIEW IN MANY CITIES
AND NATIONAL PARKS. TOMORROW WE WILL LEARN HOW THESE POLLUTANTS FORM AND
CREATE POOR AIR QUALITY CONDITIONS. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON AIR QUALITY
AWARENESS WEEK, VISIT US AT WWW.AIRQUALITY.NOAA.GOV.
