NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
200 PM PDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Synopsis...expect the warmest day so far this year on Thursday 
with afternoon temperatures much above normal. Scattered rain 
showers will arrive in northwest Nevada Thursday night. Scattered 
showers and thunderstorms are expected Friday and Saturday...most 
numerous across central and eastern Nevada. A stronger...colder 
storm system is expected next week. 


&& 


Short term...tonight through Saturday. 


Stratocumulus gradually breaking up this afternoon behind last 
night's departing shortwave. Should still get close to projected 
highs with several hours of middle-April sunshine. 


Strong but progressive ridge of high pressure moves into Nevada on 
Thursday. Atmosphere warms rapidly in response, with some of the 
warmest temperatures so far this year expected. Middle 70s will be 
typical, with the warmest valleys in the southern and western 
zones in the lower 80s. A SW breeze at 10-20 miles per hour will encourage a 
well-mixed boundary layer and the resultant toasty temperatures. 


Friday appears to be convective and Spring-like, as a plume of 
enhanced precipitable water off the Pacific interacts with April 
sunshine. Expect isolated to scattered rain showers Friday 
morning, but instability increases after noon, especially across 
Elko, northern White Pine, southeast Eureka, and northwest Nye counties. GFS 
bufr soundings for Elko Friday afternoon reveal cloud bases near 
650 mb, low enough to get rain to the ground, especially with precipitable water 
over 1/2 inch. Soundings also suggest a lifted index of -2 and 
cape of 200 j/kg around 2-3 PM. Needless to say, mentioned 
thunder, and included scattered thunder wording where instability 
is expected to be the greatest. Strong downdrafts of 50-55 miles per hour 
possible from the strongest storms. With the clouds and 
convection, afternoon highs will be reduced from thursday's balmy 
readings, but still in the 60s and lower 70s. 


Saturday...more of the same convective trends, although more 
focused across the southeast zones, as the precipitable water plume shifts southeast. GFS bufr 
soundings for Ely Saturday afternoon again reveal cloud bases near 
650 mb with lifted index of -1 and cape near 100 j/kg. Increased 
pop grids from the Ruby Mountains se, and included thunder. 12z 
European model (ecmwf) in particular has strong convective signals across the 
eastern and southern zones. Temperatures will warm nicely over northwest 
Nevada, away from the convection and with fewer clouds than on 
Friday. Bt 


Long term...Saturday night through next Wednesday. Models in 
generally good agreement with the overall pattern through 
Monday...then differ on the strength and timing of the trough over the 
western U.S. Next Tuesday and Wednesday. Flat Ridge over the County Warning Area 
Saturday night into Sunday with a few showers possible...mainly over 
eastern Nevada. A few rain showers may linger along the Idaho-Nevada border 
Sunday night...otherwise dry as a dirty ridge builds over the County Warning Area. 
Models differ in timing of the movement of the deep tropopause in the Gulf 
of Alaska on Monday. With this deeper tropopause...expect the cold front 
associated with the trough to be on the slower side. Still...models 
aren't too bad in agreement on quantitative precipitation forecast amounts Tuesday and Wednesday. 
Models indicate a strong cold front moving across Nevada during 
the day Tuesday...with snow levels dropping to the valley floors 
by midnight over most locations Tuesday. Still too early to get 
the timing of quantitative precipitation forecast amounts...but does look colder and wetter next 
middle week. Airmass remains cold Wednesday and looks at this time 
there should be enough moisture present for rain and snow 
showers. Jh 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions across the region through Thursday. 
Northwesterly winds with gusts of 15 to 25 kts will decrease after 
sunset this evening. South to southwest winds 12 to 22 miles per hour will 
develop Thursday afternoon ahead of the next trough located along 
the West Coast. Jh 


&& 


Lkn watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
