NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
238 PM PDT Monday may 4 2015 


Synopsis...warmer than normal temperatures can be expected through 
Tuesday...then cooler temperatures until the end of next week as 
a low pressure system drops south from the Pacific northwest. 
Thunderstorms will develop each day at first in eastern and 
central Nevada then spreading into western Nevada by Wednesday. 


&& 


Short term...tonight through Wednesday. Expect isolated 
thunderstorms to continue over eastern Nevada this evening and again 
Tuesday afternoon where boundary layer winds converge in an area 
of lifted indice's zero or less. Best chance of precipitation over the 
southern portions of northern Nye and White Pine counties as more 
moisture available at the lower levels and where surface 
convergence is located. Thunderstorms and showers will decrease 
Tuesday evening...except extreme southern portions of northern Nye 
and White Pine counties. Airmass becomes unstable over the entire 
County Warning Area for increasing thunderstorm coverage on Wednesday as an cool 
upper low drop south from the Pacific northwest. 


Long term...Wednesday night through Sunday. Latest long range 
deterministic guidance is in pretty good agreement for this forecast 
cycle. A strong cutoff low will continue to be aided by an 300 mb 100 knots 
jet to dig southward into north central California Wednesday night. 
Showers and thunderstorms from early evening will transition to rain 
and snow showers later Wednesday night through Thursday morning. 


Thursday and Thursday night...thunderstorms are expected to develop 
with the rain and snow showers Thursday afternoon into Thursday 
evening. Both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) keep a diffluent flow aloft over 
the Great Basin which will enhance the instability and convective 
processes Thursday afternoon and Thursday evening. Snow levels 
from 6500 to 7500 are expected except for White Pine where snow 
levels will be between 5000 and 6000 feet. 


Friday through early Saturday night...the cutoff low works across 
southern Nevada and into southern Utah and northern Arizona. As this 
system slowly pulls away to the southeast...precipitation chances 
will gradually diminish from northwest to southeast. 


Later Saturday night through Sunday...a short wave ridge builds into 
the Great Basin. Unfortunately it will be a dirty ridge with middle and 
high clouds spilling over the ridge. In addition...some showers will 
develop across northern and central Nevada Sunday. 


&& 


Aviation...showers and a few thunderstorms are occurring over much 
of the County Warning Area except for western and central Humboldt County. Some 
lightning strikes have occurred...however similar to the last couple 
days they have been few and far between. Any lightning should 
diminish this evening with showers diminishing later tonight. 
Outflow winds from this activity may be erratic and reach up to 40 
miles per hour. Expect similar conditions to take place tomorrow. VFR 
conditions except may briefly drop to MVFR in the vicinity of the 
strongest storms. 


Equipment...the Winnemucca ASOS is experiencing telecommunications 
issues at this time. Although the ASOS is not transmitting 
observations through the internet...landline communications remain 
operational. It is not known at this time when this will be repaired. 


&& 


Lkn watches/warnings/advisories...none.
