Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Elko Nevada 811 PM PDT Sat Oct 25 2014 Synopsis...strong winds and blowing dust are gradually subsiding this evening in most of the area as a strong cold front sweeps across Nevada. Gusty winds will linger east of the Santa Rosa Mountains and Ruby Mountains/East Humboldt Range. Much colder air arrives in the Great Basin Sunday...along with rain and snow showers mainly north of Interstate 80. && Update...extended Wind Advisory through 3am for downslope areas east of the Santa Rosa Mountains...Ruby Mountains and East Humboldt Range as winds are funneling under a low inversion and rushing down the eastern slopes of these ranges at present. Gusts up to 60 miles per hour have locally been reported near Paradise Valley...and similar winds are possible in Ruby and Clover valleys of Elko County. Wind Advisory has been allowed to expire elsewhere. Rcm && Previous discussion... /issued at 307 PM / Synopsis...strong winds and blowing dust will gradually subside this evening as a strong cold front sweeps across Nevada. Much colder air arrives in the Great Basin Sunday...along with rain and snow showers mainly north of Interstate 80. A chilly change on Sunday with below normal temperatures and a gusty west breeze. Remaining cool with much less wind on Monday...followed by moderating temperatures on Tuesday. Update...persistent dust plume over SW Elko County has dispersed, and cancelled the blowing dust advisory. Wind Advisory continues for all zones through 8 PM. Strong Pacific cold front now at Winnemucca will race east and be at Elko and Spring Creek by 5 PM. Wind gusts near 50 miles per hour are occuring with frontal passage, and they can be expected at Elko and Spring Creek by 5 PM. Widespread blowing dust being lofted off The Flats south of Winnemucca will also arrive in NE Nevada this evening. Turner Previous discussion... /issued at 230 PM / Synopsis...strong winds and blowing dust will gradually subside this evening as a strong cold front sweeps across Nevada. Much colder air arrives in the Great Basin Sunday...along with rain and snow showers mainly north of Interstate 80. A chilly change on Sunday with below normal temperatures and a gusty west breeze. Remaining cool with much less wind on Monday...followed by moderating temperatures on Tuesday. Short term...tonight through Tuesday. Strong eastern Pacific trough is weakening as it arrives on the West Coast this afternoon. Still, pressure gradients ahead of the approaching associated cold front have been impressive, with south winds gusting near or over 40 miles per hour for many locations. Wind Advisory was expanded for all zones, and will continue through 8 PM. Gusts of 45-55 miles per hour can be expected on passes and summits, and blowing dust will be widespread in areas. Elko regional Airport has reported visibility as low as 1 1/4 mile in dust at 124 PM. The combination of strong south winds and blowing dust will make travel difficult, or at least unpleasant, through about sunset. The strong cold front will sweep through Nevada this evening, with winds decreasing and dust settling out. A much colder airmass will overspread Nevada by sunrise Sunday, with rain/snow showers mainly in Humboldt County, ahead of an approaching vorticity maximum. Pacific trough will be losing amplitude and weakening as it crosses the Great Basin Sunday, and moisture looks scarce as well. As such, quantitative precipitation forecast amounts will be light if any. Scattered rain and snow showers will spread mainly across northern Elko County, mainly north of I-80, and mainly Sunday morning. The summits of Elko county's mountains can expect 1/2-1 inch of snow Sunday, with snowflakes in the air as low as 5800 feet. A harsh cold reality check on Sunday, with temperatures spending most of the day in the upper 40s. West winds of 15-25 miles per hour will produce a wind chill index in the 30s at times. Sunday night/Monday morning...trough departs, allowing for a cold night. Does not appear the sky will clear completely, so stayed above the coldest met guidance (which forecasts 16 degrees at Elko Monday morning). 00z NAM does place a 1025 mb surface high over northern Elko County at 5 am Monday, so a hard freeze well down into the 20s can be expected for the valleys. Monday...continued cool, but with much less wind. Thicknesses and guidance still only support highs in the low to middle 50s in the afternoon, but winds will be much reduced, generally well less than 10 miles per hour. Tuesday...dry and milder, as broad high pressure ridging spreads over Nevada. Afternoon temperatures return to within a few degrees of normal. Turner Long term...Tuesday night through Saturday. Models are in fairly good agreement through the long term. On Wednesday...weak warm air advection and moist Pacific moisture will result in some isolated showers in far northwest Nevada...but many locations will just see increased cloud cover. Into the weekend...a deep trough will form and dig off the cali coast. This will place Nevada in a dry southwesterly flow through the rest of the week. Expect gusty winds and low relative humidity on Thursday and especially Friday. It remains to be seen if we will reach critical fire weather conditions...but its possible. By Saturday...the deep Pacific trough will tilt negative and move into northern Nevada. Model ensembles are actually quite good for 7 days out...but will continue to monitor since it is still a week out. Nonetheless...if this occurs...expect gusty winds...precip...and much cooler temperatures. Jrm Aviation...gusty southerly/southwesterly winds will continue at all taf sites through the afternoon. Winds will diminish around sunset. A cold front continues to push across the area and is expected to sweep through keko/kely by early evening. Vcsh will be possible at kwmc/keko this evening through Sunday...but confidence is low that any showers will actually occur at the terminals. Sunday will be breezy with VFR. Scattered/broken cloud decks at kely/keko/kwmc will be between 4 and 7 thousand feet. Jrm Fire weather...strong south winds of 20-30 mph, with gusts near 45 mph, will continue into the late afternoon hours ahead of an approaching Pacific cold front. Relative humidity will flirt with 15% for several hours this afternoon, but generally remain above red flag criteria. The danger of fire spread will continue through this evening with dormant fuels and widespread strong gusty winds. Cold frontal passage this evening will decrease the winds, and usher in a much colder airmass Sunday with much higher min relative humidity. Bt && Lkn watches/warnings/advisories... Wind Advisory until 3 am PDT Sunday for Humboldt County...Ruby Mountains/East Humboldt Range...south central Elko County. && $$ 93/99
