NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
412 am PDT Friday Aug 1 2014 


Synopsis...subtropical moisture will persist across Nevada 
bringing isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms in the 
forecast each afternoon and evening through the weekend and early 
next week. 


&& 


Short term...today through Saturday. Skies are clearing out this 
morning with surface dewpoints hanging tough in the middle 40s to low 
50s across the forecast area. Precipitable water values from 
satellite and remote sensing sites are showing values from around 
0.60 to 0.85 inches. 


Models are in agreement with the large scale features but are 
slightly different in how unstable the air mass is today. There 
is some minor drying expected to take place...and the GFS is the 
more stable of the solutions. However...cross-sections and GFS 
bufr soundings depict limited stability and surface dewpoints in 
the low to middle 30s...especially at kp68 and keko. Think these are 
too low...and will forecast dewpoints in the upper 30s to middle 40s. 
Also...with high temperatures forecast to be in the low 90s...the 
atmosphere will convect. Not expecting the coverage like 
yesterday...but more along the lines of isolated to low-end 
scattered showers and thunderstorms. Storm motions will again be 
slow..less than 10 knots...so locally heavy rain is possible with 
some storms. Have considered a Flash Flood Watch...but only a few 
locales have seen persistent heavy rain each afternoon...like 
northern Elko County. Based on slightly less moisture...lack of a 
forcing mechanism...will go with a Special Weather Statement 
instead. 


Clearing is expected tonight...and by Saturday models are showing 
an increase in moisture from the south. Slow storm motions are 
being forecast once again. Isolated to low-end scattered showers 
and thunderstorms will again be the rule for Saturday. 


Long term...Saturday night through next Thursday. Moist unstable 
conditions are expected through at least next Monday...with the 
region under a weak southwesterly flow aloft. During the middle of 
next week the upper level flow is expected to veer to a westerly 
direction. Moist unstable conditions will continue across central 
Nevada Tuesday through Thursday...however slightly drier and more 
stable air sets up across northern Nevada which is expected to 
diminish thunderstorm activity over most of Humboldt and Elko 
counties. 


&& 


Aviation...slightly drier and more stable across northeastern 
Nevada today with reduced thunderstorm activity for keko. Elevated 
moisture and instability remains over western and central portions 
of the state...with scattered thunderstorms expected at kwmc...kely 
and ktph. Most storms are expected to bring moderate to heavy rain 
showers...with strongest storms producing small hail and wind gusts 
to 40 miles per hour. 


&& 


Fire weather...moisture decreases slightly today...but will 
remain sufficient for isolated to scattered showers and 
thunderstorms. Storm speeds are forecast to be slow at less than 
10 knots...so the expectation is there that storms will be mostly 
wet. Main threats for today's storms include brief heavy rain and 
wind gusts to 50 miles per hour. Moisture will increase slightly tomorrow 
with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms re-developing 
once again. Moisture remain prevalent through early next week 
under weak southwest flow. Slight drying trend north of US Highway 
50 is possible mid-week. 


&& 


Lkn watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
