NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
317 PM PDT Monday Jul 6 2015 


Synopsis...a low pressure system off the California coast will 
slowly approach Nevada this week, providing scattered showers and 
thunderstorms each day. Afternoon temperatures will remain mild... 
and several degrees below normal...through Saturday. 


&& 


Short term...tonight through Wednesday. 


Scattered showers and thunderstorms favoring central Nevada this 
afternoon, with a secondary focus across far northern Nevada. 
Expect pulse convection across northern Elko County to dissipate 
promptly at sunset, while some scattered thunderstorms continue 
well into the evening south of U.S. Highway 50, mainly Nye County. 
Plenty of clouds and a few showers will persist overnight, 
particularly across the SW zones as GFS suggests. 


Closed low in the eastern Pacific west of San Francisco this 
afternoon will move little through Tuesday. Nonetheless, some 
diffluence is noted aloft, and instability is certainly sufficient 
to support another round of scattered afternoon/evening 
convection on Tuesday. NAM forecasts cape of 500-1500 j/kg, with 
lifted index of -2 to -4, and along with the ecmwf's generous quantitative precipitation forecast 
depiction Tuesday afternoon, confident scattered thunderstorm 
coverage will result, and increased pop grids some. 


Afternoon highs Tuesday will average a few degrees below normal, 
ranging from near 80 at Ely to near 90 at Winnemucca. Winds light 
outside of convective outflows. 


Tuesday night...under diffluence aloft, sky will remain mostly 
cloudy with lingering noctural showers likely. All models depict 
scattered activity persisting overnight through sunrise Wednesday 
morning, and increased probability of precipitation accordingly. 12z GFS is very wet 
during this time period, and is likely overdone, but precipitation 
coverage will have to be increased further, with higher qpf, 
should it come to fruition. Cape near 1000 j/kg from 12z NAM all 
the way through the night, so some nocturnal thunder is possible. 


Wednesday...closed Pacific low begins to make its move to the 
east, arriving on the central California coast by 5 PM. Divergence 
aloft will only increase across Nevada as the low approaches, and 
interact with a moist/unstable airmass. NAM is quite aggressive 
with instability Wednesday, with lifted index down to -7 and cape 
exceeding 2000 j/kg. With synoptic forcing for ascent approaching 
from the west...and assuming...we can get sufficient insolation 
through the clouds, a significant round of thunderstorms is 
expected, and increased coverage in the grids quite a bit. Some 
strong to severe convection is certainly possible, but with 
sunshine availability in question, left out any enhanced wording 
for now. Temperatures remain several degrees below early July 
normals, ranging from the upper 70s near Ely to upper 80s near 
Battle Mountain. Turner 




Long term...Wednesday night through next Monday. Upper level low 
moves inland over California Wednesday night...opening into a broad 
trough extending across all of California and Nevada on Thursday. 
Shower and thunderstorm activity to continue over most of northern 
and central Nevada Thursday afternoon and early evening. High 
temperatures will trend lower Wednesday through Friday with the 
trough over Nevada. 


Trough continues to open and lift Thursday night into Friday with 
most lingering convection centered over western and northern 
Nevada...drier across east-central Nevada. For Saturday models are 
in good agreement that drier and more stable conditions take hold 
over all of central Nevada as the trough weakens and higher pressure 
begins to build in from the southeast. Expect some lingering 
isolated showers and thunderstorms over mainly just the higher 
terrain of Humboldt and Elko counties Saturday...with warmer high 
temperatures across the region. Winds will also begin to increase 
this weekend...with highest sustained speeds and gusts across 
central Nevada. A little disagreement in the models by Sunday with 
respect to possible lingering shower activity over western Humboldt 
County...otherwise dry across the County Warning Area. 


&& 


Aviation...showers and thunderstorms continue into this evening 
across much of northern and central Nevada. Most storms over 
northern Nevada will be north of kwmc and likely north and east of 
keko. Storms are moving up into central Nevada and may impact ktph 
and kely. Thunderstorm activity will end overnight...however on 
Tuesday areal coverage of storms will expand across most all of 
northern and central Nevada with thunderstorms in the vicinity at all taf sites during the 
afternoon and early evening hours. 


&& 


Fire weather...a low pressure system in the eastern Pacific this 
afternoon will slowly approach and cross Nevada through Friday, 
providing scattered showers and thunderstorms each afternoon and 
evening. Lal of 4 is expected for most fwz during peak heating 
hours, with isolated nocturnal convection possible as the system 
approaches late this week. Precipitable water will average near 0.75 inch for 
most of this week, sufficient to keep most storms wet. Somewhat 
drier air, with precipitable water down to 0.50 inch, will invade the southeast fwz by 
Thursday/Friday for some increasing dry lightning potential. Winds 
will remain light outside of convective outflows, and afternoon 
temperatures will remain mild (several degrees below normal) this 
week. Turner
