NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
205 PM PST Tuesday Nov 24 2015 

Synopsis...a strong winter storm will move into northern and 
central Nevada tonight and Wednesday bringing snow and very cold 
temperatures. Much below normal temperatures will continue through 
the weekend. Some moisture will wrap around the departing system and 
hit the rubies and parts of northeast Nevada into Friday. 


Short term...tonight through Friday. Strong upper low off the 
coast is moving according to the short term models and the 
previous forecast package is well put together. Only a few changes 
and will mention in a moment. 

As of this writing warm front is moving into Idaho from northwest 
Nevada. Cold front just entering northwest Nevada. This system will 
slide east through this evening and exit the state Wednesday 
morning. Patches of light rain fall in between the warm and cold 
front with an area of rain along the front but over the sierras. As 
the front moves in very much colder air behind it will quickly turn 
the rain to snow. Any wet spots will flash freeze. 

Expecting 1 to 4 inches of snow in the valleys with the front, 
except across northern Nye County where less than 1 inch is 
expected. By Wednesday afternoon upper low will be centered over 
north central Nevada with good wrap around snow across northern Elko 
County...eastern Humboldt County...and the Ruby/East Humboldt Range 
into late Thursday as the upper low tracks east along Interstate 80 
and low pressure lobes form on the west side of the low. Looks like 
5 to 10 inches of snow in the valleys of northern Elko County and 
northern Humboldt County. Therefore have retained the Winter Storm 
Warning. For the rest of northern and central nv(except northern Nye 
county) kept the Winter Weather Advisory. 

Note: wrap around moisture and a decent upslope will affect 
northeast Elko County and Ruby/east Humboldt ranges. Have increased 
quantitative precipitation forecast and snow amounts there...especially in the rubies/east humboldts 
for Thursday. There is a hint that Great Basin np may get a western 
upslope later Thursday and Friday but have not change that at this 

Long term...Friday night through next Tuesday. Upper level low 
remains over the Great Basin Friday night into Saturday. May see a 
few light snow flurries into the weekend with partly to mostly 
cloudy skies...along with well below normal temperatures. Low ejects 
east Sunday into early next week with decreasing cloud cover along 
with continued below normal temperatures as the flow aloft becomes 
northerly. Quite a bit of model uncertainly next week as models try 
to get a handle on another storm system approaching the West Coast. 
European model (ecmwf) model keeps the County Warning Area dry Monday through Wednesday...while the 
GFS begins to spread light precipitation into western Nevada as 
early as Monday night. 


Aviation...gusty winds across portions of central and western 
Nevada this afternoon. May see some periods of gusty winds into the 
evening hours ahead of a cold front that will move into the region 
this evening and overnight. The approaching storm system will bring 
moist and much colder air to the region. Heaviest precipitation is 
expected across northern Nevada...with light to moderate snow 
across central Nevada. 


Lkn watches/warnings/advisories... 
Winter Storm Warning from 10 PM this evening to 4 PM PST 
Thursday for northern Elko County. 

Winter Storm Warning until 10 am PST Thursday for Humboldt 

Winter Weather Advisory from 4 am to 4 PM PST Wednesday for
