NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
205 am PDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Synopsis...after a brief break in the action...a low pressure 
system will slowly move through the Silver state. Unsettled 
weather will begin to affect northern Nevada Thursday...then 
showers will spread to all of northern and central Nevada by 
Friday. Some valley snow accumulations are possible over the 
weekend and improving conditions are expected by the beginning of 
next week. 


&& 


Short term...today through Friday. A little cooler this 
morning...temperatures approaching freezing. Satellite imagery 
shows some lingering clouds over eastern Nevada but shower 
activity has moved east to northern Utah. The negative tilt of the 
exiting trough has left a northwest flow aloft of the Great Basin. 
As a short wave ridge enters the Pacific coastal region...there is 
a substantially dense middle to high cloud deck over Reno moving 
towards the southern part of the lkn County warning forecast area. Thus clearing will not 
occur despite the improving conditions overall. The upper flow 
pattern is depicted similarly by the models however they are still 
having difficulty with timing and amount of precipitation with the 
next weather system this week. 


Today through Thursday. Weak high pressure will move over the 
state. The low amplitude of the ridge pattern will allow dirt to 
continue to stream across northern Nevada...thus cannot rule out 
some light showers mainly north of Interstate 80. Snow 
accumulation in the valleys is not expected. High temperatures 
will generally range from the middle 40s to the middle 50s today...and 
reach into the 60s widespread Thursday. Low temperatures will 
range from the middle 20s to the middle 30s. 


Thursday night through Friday. A strong low pressure system will 
drop down along the California coast. Despite the erratic timing 
differences of precipitation onset...the general consensus is for 
a substantial slug of Pacific moisture to be scooped up and slung 
over the state by the time the upper low re-centers near San 
Francisco at the end of the day Friday. Strong diffluence aloft is 
depicted over northern Nevada and model quantitative precipitation forecast is significant. An 
extremely broad 80 knots jet field will cross over the state which 
will enhance probability of convection over a wide area. Thunderstorms 
are possible. Through Friday afternoon...snow levels should generally 
hold above 5500 feet however a brief blast of snow below that 
level is possible by late afternoon as a cold front develops. 
Mountains should benefit greatly and impacts on Highway overpasses 
should be brief. High temperatures will generally be in the 50s 
across northern Nevada...occurring early in the day. Low 
temperatures will range from the 30s to around 40 degrees. High 
temperatures will be in the 60s south of Highway 50. 


Long term...Friday night through next Tuesday. 


A strong Pacific storm system will bring accumulating snow to much 
of eastern Nevada Friday night and Saturday morning. Unseasonably 
Cold Saturday, followed by a warming trend Sunday through Tuesday. 


00z GFS/European model (ecmwf) in good agreement forecasting an intense upper low to 
dive down the California coastline Friday evening, with a 
well-defined deformation axis producing significant rain/snow across 
the southeast zones. European model (ecmwf) suggests heavy wet snow may fall Friday evening 
into Saturday morning across southern Elko, White Pine, southeast Eureka 
and northern Nye counties. Frontogenesis forcing from GFS mirrors 
these same zones. Increased rain/snow coverage significantly into 
the likely category for much of eastern Nevada Friday night and 
early Saturday, using 00z mex/mra as guidance, and switched to a 
stratiform depiction of the precipitation. It appears the strongest 
forcing will coincide with the coldest air and coldest time of day, 
increasing confidence that snow accumulations will occur, especially 
on passes/summits and elevated/vegetated surfaces. The snow is 
expected Saturday morning, with no school and limited commuting, so 
this should work against any significant impacts. A Winter Weather 
Advisory may be required. Not out of the question some valleys in 
and near White Pine County may tally upwards of 6 inches, and a 
Winter Storm Watch may be considered by future shifts. 


System is quite progressive, moving to the Grand Canyon Saturday 
afternoon. Snow showers will rapidly taper off Saturday afternoon. 
Unseasonably cold of course Saturday afternoon, stuck in the 40s, 
with a few lower 50s across the western/southern zones. 


Overrunning rain/snow showers expected across northern Nevada 
Sunday, as high pressure begins to build across the eastern Pacific. 
Amounts will be light, confined to areas along and north of I-80. 
Temperatures recover a bit into the 50s, held back by thick clouds. 


Monday and Tuesday...high pressure builds into Nevada strongly, with 
dry weather and a rapid warming trend. Bt 


&& 


Aviation...much improved flying weather for Wednesday. Dry weather 
returns to all terminals, with much less wind compared to Tuesday. 
VFR with scattered/broken stratocumulus. After 18z, SW winds at 10-20 kts at 
kwmc/keko and northwest winds at 10-20 kts at kely/ktph. Bt 


&& 


Lkn watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
