NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
215 am PDT Thursday Sep 3 2015 


Synopsis...a cooling trend will continue across Nevada through 
Saturday...with afternoon temperatures falling well below normal 
on Saturday. Strong gusty winds will continue each afternoon. The 
coldest temperatures will occur Sunday morning...with many valleys 
near freezing. 


&& 


Short term...today and Friday. 


Strong low pressure trough centered in British Columbia this 
morning will approach Nevada through Friday, resulting in a 
pronounced cooling trend, and continued strong gusty winds each 
afternoon. 


Today...SW winds will average 15-25 miles per hour with higher gusts across 
northern Nevada, with much stronger winds of 20-30 miles per hour with gusts 
of 40-45 miles per hour across White Pine, NE Nye and southeast Eureka counties. 
Surface low of 995 mb near West Wendover at 5 PM will fuel the 
strongest winds across the southeast zones, but should remain just below 
advisory criteria. Isolated weak/dry convection/virga possible 
across northern Nevada this afternoon, particularly across NE Elko 
and northwest Humboldt counties where NAM forecasts lifted index down to 
-2. Moisture supply is very anemic, barely 0.50 inch, so little if 
any rainfall expected. The cooling trend begins today, with maximum 
temperatures across northern Nevada falling 5-7 degrees compared to 
wednesday's readings. 


Friday...windy and cooler. SW winds expected to be several miles per hour 
stronger across Nevada, as another 995 mb surface low develops 
over eastern Elko County, and height gradients steepen sharply 
ahead of incoming trough. Even 00z European model (ecmwf) forecasts a 998 mb Wendover 
low, impressive for that global model resolution. Strongest winds 
are expected across White Pine County Friday afternoon and 
evening, where mav guidance is cranking out 31 miles per hour sustained at 
Ely, and a Wind Advisory will likely be required. The cooling 
trend continues, with high temperatures falling another 3-5 degrees into 
the upper 70s. Although moisture/instability will be weak to 
marginal, included a mention of thunder north of I-80 Friday 
afternoon as dynamic lift ahead of approaching trough will be 
strong. Turner 




Long term...Friday night through next Thursday. Models have agreed 
fairly well in the long term...some deviations back and forth each 
run...but overall give high confidence in much cooler weather...and 
some possible snow showers above about 8500 feet in some ranges of 
Elko and Humboldt counties. 


Each day through Sunday brings enough instability and moisture to 
create isolated thunderstorms and showers mainly north of Interstate 
80...but much cooler temperatures over the entire forecast area. Low temperatures 
near freezing are possible Sunday morning just about 
everywhere...but into the teens is likely in high valleys of the 
north. This will depend on clouds and winds...but there are bound to 
be a few sucker holes and calm periods which will allow temperature spikes. 
This will be murder on any outside plants still around in late 
Summer... 


Snow levels drop to about 8500 feet Sunday and up to a couple inches 
are possible in spots well away from roads. Anyone recreating will 
likely see some showers...however. Campers need to be aware. 


Warming trend over the remainder of the long term as the trough axis 
wanders east and heights rise. Drying atmosphere brings return to 
more Summer like weather. Not hot...but certainly better than the 
50s to 70s of the first part. Bb 


&& 


Aviation...gusty Thursday afternoon with thunderstorms in the vicinity around 
kwmc...keko...and kely. Little rain expected...but localized bldu 
possible...as are erratic outflow winds. Weakening winds after dark 
and diminishing showers and thunder. Bb 


&& 


Fire weather...fire danger will remain elevated across Nevada 
this afternoon with strong gusty winds and low relative humidity. 
Across northern fwz, wind speeds are expected to be a few miles per hour 
weaker than those observed on Wednesday, such that winds will 
remain just below critical levels at most locations. Despite 
cooler temperatures, relative humidity will remain low, with 
min relative humidity of 10-15%. 


Stronger SW winds expected across fwz 455 and 457 this afternoon 
and early evening, averaging 20-30 miles per hour with gusts near 40 miles per hour. A 
red flag warning continues for fwz 457 this afternoon and early 
evening, where these winds will combine with min relative humidity of 8-10%. 
Fuels across White Pine County/fwz 455 remain non-critical, as 
such no red flag warnings are required. 


Friday...strong SW winds will return once again during the 
afternoon, as unseasonably strong trough approaches from the northwest. 
Airmass continues to cool across northern Nevada, with min relative humidity 
climbing to near the 15% critical threshold. Brief/local red flag 
criteria are expected across northern Nevada Friday. High 
confidence that critical wind/relative humidity will return to fwz 457 Friday 
afternoon and early evening, with gusts near 40 miles per hour and min relative humidity of 
10-15%. Turner 


&& 


Lkn watches/warnings/advisories... 
red flag warning until 8 PM PDT Friday for northern Nye 
County/Lander and Eureka counties south of Highway 50.
