Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
247 PM PDT Sat Aug 30 2014 


Synopsis...dry and stable across northern Nevada through at least 
next Wednesday. May see periods of afternoon and evening haze 
over northern Nevada due to westerly winds bringing smoke into the 
region from wildfires burning in northern California. Temperatures 
remain a couple degrees below normal through Monday...then rebound 
back into the upper 80 for most areas Tuesday and Wednesday. 


&& 


Short term...this evening through Monday. Breezy over most of 
northern and central Nevada this afternoon as a 70-80kt jet drops 
in over the region. Westerly winds are spreading smoke from 
wildfires in northern California into northern Nevada. Winds and 
smoke diminish later this evening and overnight. Isolated 
thunderstorms are possible across northeastern Elko County into 
the late evening hours as weak instability lingers. Precipitable 
water values are only around .6 however...so expect any 
thunderstorms that may develop into this evening to produce only 
virga. Dry and stable over the entire County Warning Area Sunday and Monday with 
high temperatures remaining a couple degrees below 
normal...generally upper 70s to low 80s. 


Long term...Monday night through Saturday. The models are in good 
agreement with the general 500 mb pattern. There will be a large 
ridge over the southeast United States essentially blocking any 
significant movement in the flow aloft. Throughout the long term 
period the lkn County warning forecast area will be in a southwest flow aloft. Over 
time...getting near the weekend...a low pressure trough over the 
eastern Pacific may be able to nudge the ridge enough to create 
some instability over Nevada. The degree to which any movement 
occurs is differing between the models. So for now...will keep 
probability of precipitation minimal. 


&& 


Aviation...gusty winds to 30 knots will last through early this 
evening. There will be some smoke from California wildfires 
spreading across northern Nevada to promote haziness. Thus cannot 
rule out diminished visibility periodically at kwmc and keko 
overnight. However for the most part...VFR conditions are expected 
at kwmc keko kely and ktph through Sunday afternoon. 


&& 


Fire weather...breezy conditions across most of northern and 
central Nevada into this evening. West-northwesterly winds 
continue to combine with low relative humidities across central 
Nevada...resulting in critical fire weather conditions. Smoke from 
northern California wildfires is also being advected in over 
northern Nevada with these strong winds. Higher humidities and dew 
points across northern Nevada this afternoon and evening...with 
enough instability in northeastern Elko County to possibly set 
off a few dry thunderstorms. Not quite as breezy on Sunday...along 
with a more stable air mass. As such no wind/relative humidity issues or 
thunderstorm activity. Dry and stable through at least the 
middle of next week too...with the greatest concern being the 
return of wind/relative humidity issues Thursday on into next weekend. 


&& 


Lkn watches/warnings/advisories... 
red flag warning until 9 PM PDT this evening for northeastern 
Nye County...northwestern Nye County...southern Lander County 
and southern Eureka County...White Pine County.
