NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
200 PM PDT sun may 24 2015 


Synopsis...a break of dry weather is expected during the morning 
hours of Memorial Day...before scattered thunderstorms develop 
across northern Nevada Monday afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms 
will continue Tuesday and Wednesday...before drier and warmer 
weather returns Thursday and Friday. 


&& 


Short term...tonight through Tuesday. 


And the rain still continues... 


Showers and thunderstorms once again scattered to numerous across 
Nevada this afternoon. 563 dm upper low sitting and spinning 
nearly stationary over northwest Colorado this afternoon, blocked by 
strong eastern U.S. Ridge. As such, the wraparound moisture 
conveyor belt has reactivated this afternoon across the Great 
Basin. Did an update to increase coverage to likely/numerous 
through at least 5 PM. Once again today, some storms have been 
strong, with localized flooding quite common. Soils are growing 
more saturated with water seeping into some basements. Storm that 
passed over Elko this afternoon produced a confirmed funnel cloud. 
Diurnal instability will quickly diminish after 5 PM, with shower 
coverage decreasing rapidly. 


Tonight...weak shortwave ridge moves into Nevada, ending the rain 
and resulting in at least partial clearing through Monday morning. 
It GOES without saying that the ground and boundary layer are 
incredibly moist, so feel it is prudent to mention areas of 
radiation fog late tonight through Memorial Day morning. 


Memorial Day...models are consistent with a temporary break of dry 
weather for all zones during the morning hours, from 5-11 am, and 
kept that period dry for most zones. Pattern change still expected 
on Monday, as Colorado low finally departs away from Nevada, and a 
new trough enters the Pacific northwest. Flow over Nevada becomes more 
zonal, as the new trough approaches northwest Nevada by 5 PM. Lift from 
this trough will encourage thunderstorms to redevelop across 
northern Nevada, mainly north of I-80, Monday afternoon. 12z NAM 
forecasts widespread instability across the County Warning Area Monday, with 
lifted index of -2c to -4c, and cape of 500-1000 j/kg, so an 
isolated thunderstorm is possible just about anywhere Monday 
afternoon and evening. The difference is, convection should be 
more widely scattered to isolated on Memorial Day, especially 
south of I-80, and it will be notably warmer, with afternoon highs 
returning to the lower 70s for most valley locations. 


Tuesday...upper low meanders in the Pacific NW, with the 
associated trough and embedded disturbances trailing south through 
Nevada. All model guidance unanimously generate numerous showers 
and thunderstorms across mainly eastern Nevada Tuesday afternoon. 
With excellent agreement with model quantitative precipitation forecast fields, and given how 
easy is has been to rain lately, increased shower and thunderstorm 
coverage to likely/numerous once again, with the exceptions of 
Humboldt County and near Tonopah. Instability and shear 
combination will encourage strong to severe convection in eastern 
Nevada Tuesday afternoon. Thickness on Monday and Tuesday are 
identical, so expect no temperature change Tuesday compared to 
monday's readings. 


Turner 


Long term...Tuesday night through next Sunday. Trough over the 
Pacific northwest will bring some showers to the County Warning Area Tuesday night 
into Wednesday. As the trough axis moves into eastern Nevada Wednesday 
night...showers will decrease from the west. High pressure builds 
along the West Coast on Thursday...however still enough instability 
for isolated afternoon thunderstorms in eastern Nevada. Ridge 
continues to build Thursday night into Friday and remains over the 
County Warning Area through next Sunday for dry conditions and warmer 
temperatures. 


&& 


Aviation...showers and afternoon and evening thunderstorms will 
remain over the taf sites for the next 24 hour period. MVFR ceilings/visible 
will be possible at times. 


&& 


Lkn watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
