NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
811 PM PDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis...strong winds and blowing dust are gradually subsiding 
this evening in most of the area as a strong cold front sweeps 
across Nevada. Gusty winds will linger east of the Santa Rosa 
Mountains and Ruby Mountains/East Humboldt Range. Much colder air 
arrives in the Great Basin Sunday...along with rain and snow 
showers mainly north of Interstate 80. 


&& 


Update...extended Wind Advisory through 3am for downslope areas 
east of the Santa Rosa Mountains...Ruby Mountains and East 
Humboldt Range as winds are funneling under a low inversion and 
rushing down the eastern slopes of these ranges at present. Gusts 
up to 60 miles per hour have locally been reported near Paradise Valley...and 
similar winds are possible in Ruby and Clover valleys of Elko 
County. Wind Advisory has been allowed to expire elsewhere. Rcm

Previous discussion... /issued at 307 PM / 


Synopsis...strong winds and blowing dust will gradually subside 
this evening as a strong cold front sweeps across Nevada. Much 
colder air arrives in the Great Basin Sunday...along with rain and 
snow showers mainly north of Interstate 80. A chilly change on 
Sunday with below normal temperatures and a gusty west breeze. 
Remaining cool with much less wind on Monday...followed by 
moderating temperatures on Tuesday. 


Update...persistent dust plume over SW Elko County has dispersed, 
and cancelled the blowing dust advisory. Wind Advisory continues 
for all zones through 8 PM. Strong Pacific cold front now at 
Winnemucca will race east and be at Elko and Spring Creek by 5 PM. 
Wind gusts near 50 miles per hour are occuring with frontal passage, and they 
can be expected at Elko and Spring Creek by 5 PM. Widespread 
blowing dust being lofted off The Flats south of Winnemucca will 
also arrive in NE Nevada this evening.

Previous discussion... /issued at 230 PM / 


Synopsis...strong winds and blowing dust will gradually subside 
this evening as a strong cold front sweeps across Nevada. Much 
colder air arrives in the Great Basin Sunday...along with rain and 
snow showers mainly north of Interstate 80. A chilly change on 
Sunday with below normal temperatures and a gusty west breeze. 
Remaining cool with much less wind on Monday...followed by 
moderating temperatures on Tuesday. 


Short term...tonight through Tuesday. 


Strong eastern Pacific trough is weakening as it arrives on the 
West Coast this afternoon. Still, pressure gradients ahead of the 
approaching associated cold front have been impressive, with south 
winds gusting near or over 40 miles per hour for many locations. Wind 
Advisory was expanded for all zones, and will continue through 8 
PM. Gusts of 45-55 miles per hour can be expected on passes and summits, and 
blowing dust will be widespread in areas. Elko regional Airport 
has reported visibility as low as 1 1/4 mile in dust at 124 PM. 
The combination of strong south winds and blowing dust will make 
travel difficult, or at least unpleasant, through about sunset. 
The strong cold front will sweep through Nevada this evening, with 
winds decreasing and dust settling out. A much colder airmass will 
overspread Nevada by sunrise Sunday, with rain/snow showers mainly 
in Humboldt County, ahead of an approaching vorticity maximum. 


Pacific trough will be losing amplitude and weakening as it 
crosses the Great Basin Sunday, and moisture looks scarce as well. 
As such, quantitative precipitation forecast amounts will be light if any. Scattered rain and snow 
showers will spread mainly across northern Elko County, mainly 
north of I-80, and mainly Sunday morning. The summits of Elko 
county's mountains can expect 1/2-1 inch of snow Sunday, with 
snowflakes in the air as low as 5800 feet. A harsh cold reality 
check on Sunday, with temperatures spending most of the day in the 
upper 40s. West winds of 15-25 miles per hour will produce a wind chill index 
in the 30s at times. 


Sunday night/Monday morning...trough departs, allowing for a cold 
night. Does not appear the sky will clear completely, so stayed 
above the coldest met guidance (which forecasts 16 degrees at Elko 
Monday morning). 00z NAM does place a 1025 mb surface high over 
northern Elko County at 5 am Monday, so a hard freeze well down 
into the 20s can be expected for the valleys. 


Monday...continued cool, but with much less wind. Thicknesses and 
guidance still only support highs in the low to middle 50s in the 
afternoon, but winds will be much reduced, generally well less 
than 10 miles per hour. 


Tuesday...dry and milder, as broad high pressure ridging spreads 
over Nevada. Afternoon temperatures return to within a few degrees of 
normal. 


Turner 


Long term...Tuesday night through Saturday. Models are in fairly 
good agreement through the long term. On Wednesday...weak warm air advection and 
moist Pacific moisture will result in some isolated showers in far 
northwest Nevada...but many locations will just see increased cloud cover. Into 
the weekend...a deep trough will form and dig off the cali coast. 
This will place Nevada in a dry southwesterly flow through the rest 
of the week. Expect gusty winds and low relative humidity on Thursday and 
especially Friday. It remains to be seen if we will reach critical 
fire weather conditions...but its possible. By Saturday...the deep 
Pacific trough will tilt negative and move into northern Nevada. 
Model ensembles are actually quite good for 7 days out...but will 
continue to monitor since it is still a week out. Nonetheless...if 
this occurs...expect gusty winds...precip...and much cooler 
temperatures. Jrm 


Aviation...gusty southerly/southwesterly winds will continue at all taf sites 
through the afternoon. Winds will diminish around sunset. A cold 
front continues to push across the area and is expected to sweep 
through keko/kely by early evening. Vcsh will be possible at 
kwmc/keko this evening through Sunday...but confidence is low that 
any showers will actually occur at the terminals. Sunday will be 
breezy with VFR. Scattered/broken cloud decks at kely/keko/kwmc will be 
between 4 and 7 thousand feet. Jrm 


Fire weather...strong south winds of 20-30 mph, with gusts near 
45 mph, will continue into the late afternoon hours ahead of an 
approaching Pacific cold front. Relative humidity will flirt with 15% for several 
hours this afternoon, but generally remain above red flag 
criteria. The danger of fire spread will continue through this 
evening with dormant fuels and widespread strong gusty winds. Cold 
frontal passage this evening will decrease the winds, and usher in 
a much colder airmass Sunday with much higher min relative humidity. Bt

Lkn watches/warnings/advisories... 
Wind Advisory until 3 am PDT Sunday for Humboldt County...Ruby 
Mountains/East Humboldt Range...south central Elko County.
