NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
408 am PDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Synopsis...much cooler and more fall-like today with many 
locations remaining in the 50s this afternoon. Temperatures will 
rebound very quickly Wednesday and Thursday...with afternoon 
temperatures well above normal once again. Warm and dry afternoons 
will continue Friday and Saturday...before a strong cold front 
brings rain and snow showers...and much colder temperatures...on 
Sunday. 




&& 


Aviation update...thunderstorms and showers have move quickly out 
of area. Will drop vcsh from kwmc and drop thunderstorms in the vicinity from keko. Keeping 
vcsh at keko through 14z with tempo vrb gusty winds. 




&& 


Previous discussion... /issued at 237 am / 




Short term...today through Thursday. 


Strong shortwave pivoting through northern Nevada this morning, 
with very strong dynamics but very limited moisture. Showers have 
been most numerous in the expected areas, such as eastern Humboldt 
and northwest Elko counties. Several lightning strikes have been 
observed, as very strong lift ahead of the shortwave and along the 
associated cold front interact with what moisture is available. 
Cold front will clear the County Warning Area by sunrise, ushering a much cooler 
airmass into Nevada. Shortwave ejects rapidly this morning, with 
models indicating very few if any showers after sunrise, and 
reduced probability of precipitation accordingly. Dry for all zones after noon as 
subsidence takes over. A cool reality check is in store for this 
afternoon, with temperatures falling about 20 degrees from 
monday's readings. A west/northwest breeze of 10-20 miles per hour will add to the 
brisk change. 


Tonight...seasonably cold, with most valleys falling well into the 
20s. How cold we get will be dependent on cloud cover, as a mostly 
clear sky this evening will give way to increasing middle/high clouds 
from the west after midnight. Forecasted a compromise between the 
coldest met and milder mav guidance, with middle 20s expected at 
Elko/Spring Creek. 


Wednesday and Thursday...temperatures moderate quickly as SW flow 
returns to Nevada. Most locales in the upper 60s Wednesday 
afternoon, warming to lower 70s on Thursday. SW breezes return 
Wednesday at 5-15 mph, increasing further to 10-20 miles per hour on 
Thursday. By Thursday, a strong Pacific jet stream will be 
spreading widespread rain into the Pacific northwest. This moisture feed 
will just clip north/northwest Nevada with a cloudy sky and a few showers on 
the higher terrain on Thursday. Bt 


Long term...Thursday night through Tuesday. Models agree on moving 
southwest flow aloft across the region on Thursday night into Friday 
night...then the flow turn more southerly as the trough offshore 
deepens and tries to turn slightly negative tilt. It does not 
succeed in getting very negative but does manage to bring a bit more 
moisture into the Great Basin than otherwise would be the case with 
just over-the-Sierra-crest-dry-flow. A series of weak waves moves 
across the northern part of the County Warning Area with minimal effect over central 
and eastern Nevada through late Sunday. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts are small to 
insignificant. Front moves into the area late Saturday with gusty 
pre-frontal winds and lower Post frontal speeds...but significant 
cooling. Highs will struggle to hit 60 in Humboldt County and 
central and eastern Nevada...and 50 in the remainder of the area. 
Lows will be cold enough for snow showers in the valleys...but 
thicknesses do not support deep layer snow processes. Still...snow 
levels may drop to lower than 6000 feet in the northern half of the 
area. By Sunday afternoon...any place that gets precipitation will likely 
see a few snow showers...anyway. Elevations above about 9000 feet 
could see a couple inches from 12z Sunday to 12z Monday...with the 
Jarbidge Wilderness getting up to four inches total. Confidence is 
only medium this far out...just want outdoor workers and recreators 
to be aware. Slow warming and rapid warming occur after Monday. Bb 


Aviation...VFR at kwmc...keko...kely...and ktph through 12z 
Wednesday. Scattered decks below 5000 feet above ground level may occur at keko between 
12z and 15z Tuesday from vcsh. There are a few lightning strikes 
around the region...do not expect them at fields. Will include thunderstorms in the vicinity 
at keko through 14z Tuesday. Southwest gusty winds will switch to 
west and decrease Tuesday near sunset. Chance of precipitation decreases 
rapidly after Tuesday 18z at kwmc and keko. Almost no chance for 
precipitation at kely and ktph. Bb
