Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
239 PM PDT Sat Aug 1 2015 


Synopsis...showers and thunderstorms in central Nevada this 
evening will spread into northern Nevada Sunday and Monday as a 
surge of monsoon moisture pushes across the Great Basin this 
weekend. Showers and thunderstorms expected through the middle of 
next week then a return to drier weather. 


&& 


Short term...tonight through Monday. Showers and thunderstorms 
have developed in northern Nye and southern portions of White Pine 
County. Precipitable waters increasing to near an inch in this area. Slow storm 
motions with pockets of heavy rain...have already issued Flash 
Flood Warning and flood advisories in Nye County. Otherwise dry 
north of Highway 50 with precipitable waters around a half inch. 


Sunday...a shortwave embedded in the flow will northward into 
central Nevada on Sunday enhancing the showers and thunderstorms. 
Best instability and moisture will be mainly south of I-80 through 
Sunday afternoon and then will slowly move into northern Nevada Sunday 
evening and Monday morning. Slow storm motions and precipitable waters from .75 
to an inch expected on Sunday so a few storms could produce flash 
flooding. Have opted not to issue any flash flood watches as 
expect flood concerns to be isolated in nature. This is due to the 
fact that cloud cover may limit convection so confidence is low 
for flash flooding. 


Sunday night through Monday...wave previously referred to will 
move north and east of the area Monday morning...expect overnight 
and early morning showers across northern Nevada due to this wave 
but rainfall should not be heavy. Best instability will be across 
Elko County and through portions of central Nevada...however most 
areas will see convection. Precipitable waters will be around .75 to .90" across 
northern Nevada and storm motions will be a bit faster on Monday 
as 700mb winds increase so flooding concerns should be limited. 
But a few strong storms are possible even though shear is less 
than 30 knots. Main threat will be gusty winds and small hail. 


Long term...Monday night through next Friday. 


Tuesday...GFS/ECMWF in good agreement with a shortwave passing 
through northern Nevada in SW flow. Precipitable water near 0.75 inch and sufficient 
instability will allow for convection mainly across Elko County 
Tuesday afternoon, and increased storm coverage to scattered in the 
grids. 


Wednesday...additional shortwave energy may generate a few more 
showers across northern Nevada, but with moisture/precipitable water quality 
decreasing, kept forecast dry for now. Best chance of measurable 
rain Wednesday would be across far northern Elko County. A few 
degrees of cooling and gusty SW/west breezes as the shortwave energy 
passes through. 


Thursday...strong shortwave ridging builds quickly over Nevada, 
responding to approaching closed low in the eastern Pacific. Dry for 
all zones, with several degrees of warming into the lower 90s. 


Friday...12z European model (ecmwf) positions another unusual, 576 dm closed low by 
San Francisco at 5 PM, with GFS quite similar in position and 
strength. Divergence aloft will be increasing as the low approaches, 
and European model (ecmwf) suggests some storms will fire in/near Nye County Friday 
afternoon. However, GFS advects very dry air into Nevada /pw well 
less than 0.50 inch/, so kept forecast dry and probability of precipitation less than 15% 
for now. Bat 


&& 


Aviation...highest chance of convective impacts through this 
evening will be at/near ktph, and will maintain a tempo for the 00z 
ktph taf to account for convective outflow. Moisture and instability 
much less at kely, where cumulus are struggling and any convection 
will stay well SW of the terminal. Kwmc/keko dry and stable through 
12z sun. After 18z sun, most -tsra focused between kwmc and ktph, 
across Lander and northwest Nye counties. Convective coverage less near 
kely and keko. Light winds, outside of convective outflow. Bat 


&& 


Fire weather...showers and thunderstorms expected through at 
least Tuesday of next week...however some storms may produce dry 
lightning especially Monday and Tuesday. Drier conditions 
expected by the end of next week. 


&& 


Lkn watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
