AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ELKO NV
239 AM PDT FRI AUG 29 2014

.SYNOPSIS...ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON AND
SATURDAY ACROSS NORTHEAST NEVADA. OTHERWISE...LOOK FOR DRY WEATHER
OVER THE AREA. BREEZY TO LOCALLY WINDY WEST WINDS CAN BE EXPECTED
ON SATURDAY WITH COOLER TEMPERATURES AS A STORM SYSTEM PASSES TO
THE NORTH.

&&

.SHORT TERM...TODAY THROUGH SATURDAY. SKIES ARE MAINLY CLEAR THIS
MORNING...ALTHOUGH THERE ARE A FEW CLOUDS IN NORTHERN ELKO COUNTY
AT THIS TIME. A SINGLE THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPED OVER HUMBOLDT COUNTY
THIS EVENING AND ITS REMNANTS ARE MOVING EAST.

UPPER LEVEL RIDGE IS STILL LOCATED OFF THE COAST OF CALIFORNIA.
FOR TODAY...ALL MODELS ARE SHOWING AN IMPULSE MOVING ACROSS
NORTHERN NEVADA...MAINLY OVER HUMBOLDT AND NORTHERN ELKO COUNTIES.
LIMITED MID-LEVEL MOISTURE WILL COMBINE WITH THIS INSTABILITY AND
UPWARD LIFT TO PRODUCED ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS. SOUNDING AT
WILDHORSE IS SHOWING LIMITED CAPE OF ABOUT 100-300 J/KG THROUGH
THIS AFTERNOON...AND EXPECTING THE STORMS OVER THE JARBIDGE
WILDERNESS TO BE WET. SOUTH OF THIS AREA...STORMS WILL MOST
LIKELY BE DRY. WINDS THIS AFTERNOON WILL BE BREEZY WITH SOME GUSTS
TO 25 MPH IN HUMBOLDT AND ELKO COUNTIES. AFTERNOON HIGHS WILL
GENERALLY BE IN THE MID 80S TO LOW 90S.

THE NEXT SYSTEM WILL SLOWLY DIP SOUTH AND EAST THROUGH THE TONIGHT
PERIOD. BY TOMORROW MORNING...A SURFACE COLD FRONT WILL BEGIN ITS
MARCH ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA. WINDS WILL BECOME BREEZY TO WINDY
ACROSS NORTHERN NEVADA. MOISTURE REMAINS LIMITED WITH THIS
SYSTEM...WITH THE BEST CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION BEING IN THE
NORTHEAST PART OF THE FORECAST AREA. EXPECT COOLER TEMPERATURES IN
THE AFTERNOON...SOME 5-8 DEGREES COOLER THAN FRIDAY`S HIGHS.

.LONG TERM...SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY. SATURDAY NIGHT THERE
MAY BE A FEW SHOWERS LEFT OVER FROM INSTABILITY NEAR COLD FRONT.
THEN THE REST OF THE LONG TERM LOOKS DRY WITH GOOD MODEL AGREEMENT
WITH NORTHWESTERLY FLOW SUNDAY THROUGH EARLY TUESDAY. THEN SOUTHWEST
FLOW DEVELOPS AS LOW PRESSURE MOVES INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY. SOME MODELS HINTING AT SOME MOISTURE AND
INSTABILITY NEAR NORTHERN BORDER ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY BUT KEPT GHOST
POPS DUE TO UNCERTAINTY ON PRECIPITATION.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR NEXT 24 HOURS WITH SOME HIGH BASED AFTERNOON CUMULUS
AND PERIODS OF CIRRUS MOVING ACROSS THE REGION. ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF ELKO COUNTY NORTH AND EAST
OF KEKO.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...AN UPPER LEVEL IMPULSE WILL MOVE ACROSS NORTHERN
NEVADA TODAY...WITH ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPING IN PORTIONS
OF ELKO COUNTY. STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO BE MAINLY WET ACROSS THE
NORTHERN PARTS OF ELKO COUNTY...LIKE JARBIDGE...BUT SOUTH OF THIS
THEY WILL BE DRY.

ON SATURDAY...ANOTHER STORM SYSTEM WILL BE APPROACHING FROM THE
NORTH WITH MUCH OF THE ENERGY AND MOISTURE STAYING NORTH OF THE
FIRE DISTRICT. THE COLD FRONT WILL SLOWLY PUSH NORTH TO SOUTH
DURING THE DAY...BEING ALONG A WENDOVER-RUBY LAKE-MOUNT CALLAGHAN
LINE BY 5 PM SATURDAY. WITH THE BREEZY TO WINDY CONDITIONS...FIRE
ZONE 457 COULD SEE CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS BUT MEETING
THE 3 HOUR CRITERIA MAY BE DIFFICULT. WILL PASS THIS ONTO THE NEXT SHIFT.

BY SUNDAY...NORTHWEST FLOW WILL HELP TO USHER IN DRIER AIR AND
COOLER TEMPERATURES. THE REST OF THE FORECAST PERIOD LOOKS TO BE
QUIET WITH NO REAL CONCERNS AT THIS TIME.

SYNOPSIS...ANOTHER NICE DAY IS ON TAP ACROSS NORTHERN NEVADA THIS
AFTERNOON AS HIGH PRESSURE KEEPS THE WEATHER QUIET. SOME MID-LEVEL
MOISTURE WILL SEEP INTO THE REGION...WITH ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
POSSIBLE IN THE AFTERNOON FRIDAY. LOW PRESSURE WILL BE NORTH OF
NEVADA ON SATURDAY...BUT WILL HELP TO BRING BREEZY CONDITIONS TO
THE AREA SATURDAY AFTERNOON.

SHORT TERM...TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY. SKIES ARE CLEAR ACROSS
NORTHERN NEVADA THIS MORNING. THIS IS THE RESULT OF AN UPPER LEVEL
RIDGE THAT HAS ITS CENTER OF CIRCULATION OVER SOUTHWESTERN
CALIFORNIA. GOES SOUNDER DPI IS SHOWING PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES
OF 0.33 TO 0.50 INCHES OVER THE REGION.

FOR TODAY...THE AFOREMENTIONED RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO MOVE SLIGHTLY
TO THE WEST...BUT LIMITED MOISTURE WILL RESULT IN MOSTLY SUNNY
SKIES AND DRY CONDITIONS. AFTERNOON HIGHS WILL BE IN THE MID 80S
TO LOW 90S. WINDS WILL GENERALLY BE LIGHT.

IT WILL BE A QUIET AND DRY NIGHT THIS EVENING...WITH LIGHT WINDS.
THE USUALLY COLDER LOCALES LIKE WILDHORSE RESERVOIR WILL DIP TO THE
LOW TO MID 30S.

MOISTURE IN THE MID-LEVELS WILL START TO MOVE INTO NORTHERN NEVADA
TOMORROW. PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES ARE FORECAST TO INCREASE TO
ROUGHLY 0.66 TO 0.75 IN PORTION OS EUREKA...WHITE PINE AND ELKO
COUNTIES. WITH THE NOMINAL INCREASE IN MOISTURE...HAVE KEPT MAINLY
DRY THUNDERSTORMS IN THE FORECAST. AFTERNOON HIGHS WILL BE A BIT
WARMER WITH VALUES IN THE MID 80S TO LOW 90S.

LONG TERM...FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY. MODELS IN GOOD
AGREEMENT WITH TROUGH ACROSS THE WESTERN U.S. WITH A COLD FRONT
SWEEPING THROUGH THE GREAT BASIN ON SATURDAY WHICH WILL USHER IN
COOLER THAN AVERAGE TEMPERATURES FOR MUCH OF THE LONG TERM. NEAR
THIS FRONT ON FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING A FEW SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF NEVADA IN
ELKO COUNTY. BEHIND THE COLD FRONT NORTHWESTERLY FLOW WILL DOMINATE
THROUGH MONDAY WITH DRY AND SUNNY CONDITIONS. TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW WILL RE-DEVELOP AS LOW PRESSURE MOVES TOWARDS THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST.

EARLY EVENING HOURS AND SOME CIRRUS MOVING ACROSS NORTHERN NEVADA
LATER THIS AFTERNOON.

FIRE WEATHER...IT WILL BE DRY TODAY WITH HIGH PRESSURE IN CONTROL
OF THE WEATHER. HIGHS WILL CLIMB INTO THE MID 80S TO LOW 90S.
GENERALLY QUIET AND COOL CONDITIONS CAN BE ANTICIPATED FOR
TONIGHT. BY TOMORROW...INCREASING MOISTURE WILL HELP TO BRING
THUNDERSTORMS TO PORTIONS OF NORTHERN NEVADA. THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED TO REMAIN ISOLATED AND DRY ACROSS PORTIONS OF
454...455...AND 468-470. BETTER MOISTURE IS EXPECTED OVER THE
JARBIDGE WILDERNESS WHERE SCATTERED WET THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
FRIDAY AFTERNOON.

AN UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE NORTH OF NEVADA FOR THE
WEEKEND. WIND SPEEDS WILL INCREASE...AND WILL BE NEAR CRITICAL
FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL BE
IN THE 10-15 PERCENT RANGE IN FIRE ZONE 457...WITH WINDS AT OR
JUST ABOVE 30 MPH. FURTHER NORTH AND EAST...MINIMUM RH VALUES ARE

THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF NEVADA IN
ELKO COUNTY. BEHIND THE COLD FRONT NORTHWESTERLY FLOW WILL DOMINATE
THROUGH MONDAY WITH DRY AND SUNNY CONDITIONS. TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW WILL RE-DEVELOP AS LOW PRESSURE MOVES TOWARDS THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR NEXT 24 HOURS WITH FEW-SCT CUMULUS IN AFTERNOON AND
EARLY EVENING HOURS AND SOME CIRRUS MOVING ACROSS NORTHERN NEVADA
LATER THIS AFTERNOON.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...IT WILL BE DRY TODAY WITH HIGH PRESSURE IN CONTROL
OF THE WEATHER. HIGHS WILL CLIMB INTO THE MID 80S TO LOW 90S.
GENERALLY QUIET AND COOL CONDITIONS CAN BE ANTICIPATED FOR
TONIGHT. BY TOMORROW...INCREASING MOISTURE WILL HELP TO BRING
THUNDERSTORMS TO PORTIONS OF NORTHERN NEVADA. THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED TO REMAIN ISOLATED AND DRY ACROSS PORTIONS OF
454...455...AND 468-470. BETTER MOISTURE IS EXPECTED OVER THE
JARBIDGE WILDERNESS WHERE SCATTERED WET THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
FRIDAY AFTERNOON.

AN UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE NORTH OF NEVADA FOR THE
WEEKEND. WIND SPEEDS WILL INCREASE...AND WILL BE NEAR CRITICAL
FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL BE
IN THE 10-15 PERCENT RANGE IN FIRE ZONE 457...WITH WINDS AT OR
JUST ABOVE 30 MPH. FURTHER NORTH AND EAST...MINIMUM RH VALUES ARE
EXPECTED TO BE ABOVE 15 PERCENT IN THE REST OF THE FIRE ZONES.

QUIET AND DRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED FOR THE REST OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD.

UPPER 80S TO BE COMMON, WITH LOW TO MID 90S FROM BATTLE MOUNTAIN
TO WINNEMUCCA.

NAM/GFS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT PLACING MODEST INSTABILITY ACROSS
ELKO COUNTY FRIDAY AFTERNOON, SO INTRODUCED ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
TO THE FORECAST. ISOLATED CONVECTION WILL FAVOR THE HIGHER TERRAIN
OF ELKO COUNTY, BUT MOISTURE WILL BE LIMITED, WITH PW LESS THAN
0.75 INCH. MOST OF WHAT FORMS WILL BE DRY, PRODUCING MOSTLY VIRGA.

EASTERN NEVADA THIS EVENING AS LOW PRESSURE EXITS THE GREAT
BASIN. HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRY WEATHER WITH WARMER AFTERNOON
TEMPERATURES WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY. DRY WARM AFTERNOONS AND CLEAR
COOL NIGHTS WILL CONTINUE FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. EXPECT STRONG GUSTY
WEST WINDS ON SATURDAY AS A PACIFIC TROUGH PASSES JUST NORTH OF
NEVADA.

&&

.UPDATE...WITH THE UPPER LOW MOVING EAST TOWARD UTAH...DYNAMICS
HAVE WEAKEN OVER EASTERN NEVADA. THEREFORE HAVE LOWERED POPS AND
KEEP THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY ACROSS EXTREME EASTERN
NV OVERNIGHT...MAINLY ALONG THE UT-NV BORDER. HAVE DECREASED CLOUD
COVER ACROSS THE CWA WITH DAYTIME HEATING DIMINISHING. JH

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED AT 200 PM /

SHORT TERM...TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY.

SLOW-MOVING CUTOFF LOW IS CENTERED OVER EASTERN NYE COUNTY THIS
AFTERNOON, WITH WIDESPREAD CONVECTION PERSISTING IN THE NE QUADRANT
OF THE CIRCULATION ACROSS CENTRAL NEVADA. THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS
WHITE PINE COUNTY WILL EXPAND NORTHWARD INTO ELKO COUNTY, MAINLY
EAST OF THE RUBY MOUNTAINS, THROUGH THIS EVENING. SHEAR IS MUCH
WEAKER TODAY COMPARED TO MONDAY, EXPECTING STORMS MORE OF A PULSE
NATURE, BUT NONETHELESS SOME STRONG STORMS WITH LOCALLY HEAVY
RAIN, SMALL HAIL AND STRONG WINDS ARE LIKELY. PLACED THIS WORDING
IN THE GRIDS FOR WHITE PINE AND EASTERN ELKO COUNTIES INTO THIS
EVENING. LOW PRESSURE IS FORECASTED TO DEPART NEVADA AROUND GREAT
BASIN NATIONAL PARK AROUND MIDNIGHT TONIGHT, AFTER WHICH TIME ANY
CONVECTION WILL QUICKLY DIMINISH. SHOULD BE LITTLE IF ANY
CONVECTION LEFT AFTER MIDNIGHT, WITH THE LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING
AND SUBSIDENCE BEHIND THE DEPARTING LOW.

WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY...HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS QUICKLY INTO THE
GREAT BASIN, WITH DRY WARMER AFTERNOONS RETURNING. FEW IF ANY
CLOUDS, LIGHT WINDS, AND AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES RETURNING TO LATE
AUGUST NORMALS, IN THE UPPER 80S, ON THURSDAY. LOWER 90S RETURN TO
NW NEVADA VALLEYS THURSDAY. UNDER A COMPLETELY CLEAR SKY, FOLLOWED
THE COLDEST MET GUIDANCE FOR LOW TEMPERATURES THURSDAY MORNING.
LOWER 40S WILL BE COMMON AT SUNRISE THURSDAY, WITH UPPER 30S IN
THE COLDEST VALLEYS.

TURNER

LONG TERM...THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY. THE PERIOD BEGINS WITH
STRONG UPPER TROUGH APPROACHING THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST COAST. AS THIS
TROUGH SWEEPS ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST ON SATURDAY IT WILL BRING
BREEZY CONDITIONS TO NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NV ALONG WITH THE
POSSIBILITY OF A FEW THUNDERSTORMS TO THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF ELKO
COUNTY WHERE BOTH THE GFS/EURO SHOW A LITTLE MOISTURE AND
INSTABILITY. WITH THE COOLER AIR BEHIND THE TROUGH HIGH TEMPS WILL
DROP INTO THE 70S MOST LOCATIONS SUNDAY/MONDAY WITH SOME 60S IN
NORTHERN ELKO COUNTY. TEMPS WILL BEGIN TO RECOVER ON TUESDAY AS
RIDGING BEGINS TO BUILD INTO THE REGION.

AVIATION...MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY WILL BRING SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TO THE KELY TERMINAL THROUGH 03Z WITH MVFR CONDITIONS
IN THE HEAVIER THUNDERSHOWERS AND POSSIBILITY BRIEF IFR CONDITIONS.
THE KEKO TERMINAL WILL REMAIN ON THE NORTHERN FRINGE OF THIS
MOISTURE WILL ONLY ABOUT A 15 PCT CHANCE OF A THUNDERSTORM THROUGH
03Z. DRY AND STABLE CONDITIONS ON WEDNESDAY.

FIRE WEATHER...SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
WILL CONTINUE ACROSS EASTERN NEVADA INTO THIS EVENING, WITH THE
HIGHEST COVERAGE ACROSS FWZ 470 AND 455. STRONG STORMS WITH
LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN, SMALL HAIL AND GUSTY WINDS ARE EXPECTED IN
THESE ZONES THROUGH 8 PM. WEST OF THE RUBY MOUNTAINS, EXPECT MUCH
FEWER STORMS WITH MUCH LESS RAINFALL EFFICIENCY. ALL CONVECTION
WILL QUICKLY DISSIPATE ACROSS EASTERN NEVADA BY MIDNIGHT, AS LOW
PRESSURE DEPARTS NEVADA INTO UTAH.

WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY...DRY AND WARMER AFTERNOONS, WITH HIGH
PRESSURE ELIMINATING ANY CHANCE OF CONVECTION. MAX TEMPS WILL
RETURN TO NEAR NORMAL LEVELS ON THURSDAY, IN THE UPPER 80S AND
LOWER 90S, WITH A CORRESPONDING DECREASE IN MIN RH. HOWEVER, WINDS
WILL REMAIN LIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY.

SATURDAY...A STRONG PACIFIC TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL PASS JUST
NORTH OF NEVADA, WITH STRONG GUSTY WEST WINDS EXPECTED. WIND GUSTS
OF 40 MPH ARE LIKELY. MIN RH WILL FALL BELOW 15% AT LEAST FOR SOME
FWZ, AS SUCH A FIRE WEATHER WATCH FOR CRITICAL WIND/RH MAY BE
REQUIRED.

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ELKO NV
724 PM PDT TUE AUG 26 2014

.SYNOPSIS...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL END ACROSS EXTREME
EASTERN NEVADA THIS EVENING AS LOW PRESSURE EXITS THE GREAT
BASIN. HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRY WEATHER WITH WARMER AFTERNOON
TEMPERATURES WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY. DRY WARM AFTERNOONS AND CLEAR
COOL NIGHTS WILL CONTINUE FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. EXPECT STRONG GUSTY
WEST WINDS ON SATURDAY AS A PACIFIC TROUGH PASSES JUST NORTH OF
NEVADA.

&&

.UPDATE...WITH THE UPPER LOW MOVING EAST TOWARD UTAH...DYNAMICS
HAVE WEAKEN OVER EASTERN NEVADA. THEREFORE HAVE LOWERED POPS AND
KEEP THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY ACROSS EXTREME EASTERN
NV OVERNIGHT...MAINLY ALONG THE UT-NV BORDER. HAVE DECREASED CLOUD
COVER ACROSS THE CWA WITH DAYTIME HEATING DIMINISHING. JH

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED AT 200 PM /

SHORT TERM...TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY.

SLOW-MOVING CUTOFF LOW IS CENTERED OVER EASTERN NYE COUNTY THIS
AFTERNOON, WITH WIDESPREAD CONVECTION PERSISTING IN THE NE QUADRANT
OF THE CIRCULATION ACROSS CENTRAL NEVADA. THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS
WHITE PINE COUNTY WILL EXPAND NORTHWARD INTO ELKO COUNTY, MAINLY
EAST OF THE RUBY MOUNTAINS, THROUGH THIS EVENING. SHEAR IS MUCH
WEAKER TODAY COMPARED TO MONDAY, EXPECTING STORMS MORE OF A PULSE
NATURE, BUT NONETHELESS SOME STRONG STORMS WITH LOCALLY HEAVY
RAIN, SMALL HAIL AND STRONG WINDS ARE LIKELY. PLACED THIS WORDING
IN THE GRIDS FOR WHITE PINE AND EASTERN ELKO COUNTIES INTO THIS
EVENING. LOW PRESSURE IS FORECASTED TO DEPART NEVADA AROUND GREAT
BASIN NATIONAL PARK AROUND MIDNIGHT TONIGHT, AFTER WHICH TIME ANY
CONVECTION WILL QUICKLY DIMINISH. SHOULD BE LITTLE IF ANY
CONVECTION LEFT AFTER MIDNIGHT, WITH THE LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING
AND SUBSIDENCE BEHIND THE DEPARTING LOW.

WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY...HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS QUICKLY INTO THE
GREAT BASIN, WITH DRY WARMER AFTERNOONS RETURNING. FEW IF ANY
CLOUDS, LIGHT WINDS, AND AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES RETURNING TO LATE
AUGUST NORMALS, IN THE UPPER 80S, ON THURSDAY. LOWER 90S RETURN TO
NW NEVADA VALLEYS THURSDAY. UNDER A COMPLETELY CLEAR SKY, FOLLOWED
THE COLDEST MET GUIDANCE FOR LOW TEMPERATURES THURSDAY MORNING.
LOWER 40S WILL BE COMMON AT SUNRISE THURSDAY, WITH UPPER 30S IN
THE COLDEST VALLEYS.

TURNER

LONG TERM...THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY. THE PERIOD BEGINS WITH
STRONG UPPER TROUGH APPROACHING THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST COAST. AS THIS
TROUGH SWEEPS ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST ON SATURDAY IT WILL BRING
BREEZY CONDITIONS TO NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NV ALONG WITH THE
POSSIBILITY OF A FEW THUNDERSTORMS TO THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF ELKO
COUNTY WHERE BOTH THE GFS/EURO SHOW A LITTLE MOISTURE AND
INSTABILITY. WITH THE COOLER AIR BEHIND THE TROUGH HIGH TEMPS WILL
DROP INTO THE 70S MOST LOCATIONS SUNDAY/MONDAY WITH SOME 60S IN
NORTHERN ELKO COUNTY. TEMPS WILL BEGIN TO RECOVER ON TUESDAY AS
RIDGING BEGINS TO BUILD INTO THE REGION.

AVIATION...MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY WILL BRING SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TO THE KELY TERMINAL THROUGH 03Z WITH MVFR CONDITIONS
IN THE HEAVIER THUNDERSHOWERS AND POSSIBILITY BRIEF IFR CONDITIONS.
THE KEKO TERMINAL WILL REMAIN ON THE NORTHERN FRINGE OF THIS
MOISTURE WILL ONLY ABOUT A 15 PCT CHANCE OF A THUNDERSTORM THROUGH
03Z. DRY AND STABLE CONDITIONS ON WEDNESDAY.

FIRE WEATHER...SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
WILL CONTINUE ACROSS EASTERN NEVADA INTO THIS EVENING, WITH THE
HIGHEST COVERAGE ACROSS FWZ 470 AND 455. STRONG STORMS WITH
LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN, SMALL HAIL AND GUSTY WINDS ARE EXPECTED IN
THESE ZONES THROUGH 8 PM. WEST OF THE RUBY MOUNTAINS, EXPECT MUCH
FEWER STORMS WITH MUCH LESS RAINFALL EFFICIENCY. ALL CONVECTION
WILL QUICKLY DISSIPATE ACROSS EASTERN NEVADA BY MIDNIGHT, AS LOW
PRESSURE DEPARTS NEVADA INTO UTAH.

WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY...DRY AND WARMER AFTERNOONS, WITH HIGH
PRESSURE ELIMINATING ANY CHANCE OF CONVECTION. MAX TEMPS WILL
RETURN TO NEAR NORMAL LEVELS ON THURSDAY, IN THE UPPER 80S AND
LOWER 90S, WITH A CORRESPONDING DECREASE IN MIN RH. HOWEVER, WINDS
WILL REMAIN LIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY.

SATURDAY...A STRONG PACIFIC TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL PASS JUST
NORTH OF NEVADA, WITH STRONG GUSTY WEST WINDS EXPECTED. WIND GUSTS
OF 40 MPH ARE LIKELY. MIN RH WILL FALL BELOW 15% AT LEAST FOR SOME
FWZ, AS SUCH A FIRE WEATHER WATCH FOR CRITICAL WIND/RH MAY BE
REQUIRED.
