NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
344 am PDT Friday Mar 27 2015 

Synopsis...strong high pressure will bring record high temperatures 
this afternoon to many locales. A weak low pressure system will 
bring a little cooling and some clouds this weekend with maybe a 
sprinkle or two. Weak storm systems will bring breezy conditions 
to the area during the week...with the possibility of a stronger 
system by Thursday or so. 


Short term...today through Sunday. Clear skies are evident over 
northern Nevada at this time. This is due to strong high pressure 
over the southwest United States. The ridge axis will begin to 
shift east through today with plenty of sunshine and light winds. 
Record high temperatures are likely this afternoon at many 
locations...please see the climate section below for more details. 

The ridge axis will be east tonight but the quiet weather 
continues. Expecting some clouds to move in from west to 
east...but winds will be light. By tomorrow...a weak piece of 
energy will be shifting east into northern Nevada. Not expecting 
too much from this...and have kept a slight chance for showers in 
northeast Elko County but that is about it. Temperatures will cool 
off into the middle 60s to low 70s...which is still well above normal 

Saturday night and Sunday...a flat west to east flow will take 
shape over northern Nevada...with a piece of energy over Southern 
California. Confluent flow over southern Lander/Eureka...White 
Pine and northern Nye counties may lead to some cumulus buildups 
on the high elevation sites and maybe a rumble of thunder. Other 
than that...expect quiet conditions and temperatures above normal. 

Long term...Sunday night through next Thursday. Models coming into 
better agreement with latest model runs. As the period begins a weak 
shortwave and cold front will kick off a few showers over central 
Nevada mainly over the high terrain...lifted indice's are near -1 but held off 
on the mention of thunder due to low confidence. Monday a brief 
break with mainly zonal flow then another shortwave and cold front 
approaches Tuesday which will drop temperatures a good 10 degrees 
with a chance of showers mainly over northern Elko County. Wednesday 
will be dry...but as we approach Thursday models are indicating a 
digging trough over the Great Basin which will bring much cooler 
temperatures with lowering snow levels near the valley floors. 
Increased probability of precipitation on Thursday due to good model agreement with slight 
chance of snow showers over parts of northern and central Nevada. 


Aviation...VFR conditions over the next 24 hours and light winds. 


Climate...high pressure will be overhead today with record 
highs very likely. Here are the existing records and forecast 
highs for today:

Look for slightly cooler temperatures on Saturday and 
Sunday...with a slight chance for light showers or sprinkles 
in the northeast on Saturday and a very isolated possibility 
of thunder on Sunday.
