NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
233 PM PST sun Dec 21 2014 


Synopsis...valley rain and mountain snow will continue tonight. 
With valley rain changing to snow Monday as a cold front sweeps 
through the area. Gusty winds will occur Monday behind the cold 
front. Snow showers will linger across northeastern Nevada on 
Tuesday but drier by Wednesday...however late Christmas evening into 
Christmas morning the area may see some snow...confidence is still 
low with this storm system. Stay tuned for chances of a white 
Christmas. 


&& 


Short term...tonight through Wednesday...isentropic lift 
continues to generate areas of light precipitation across northern 
Nevada and will continue overnight with snow levels generally 
above 6,500 to 7,000 feet. A cold front will sweep through the 
area tomorrow bringing precipitation chances to central Nevada and 
will lower snow levels to most of the valley floors with rain 
changing to snow...however do not expect much snow accumulation 
due to limited moisture behind the cold front. Gusty winds will 
occur behind cold front especially in Tonopah and West Wendover 
areas and in other downslope prone areas with wind gusts to 50 miles per hour 
possible tomorrow. 


Tuesday and Tuesday night...a few lingering snow showers mainly 
across Elko County in the higher terrain due to cold air aloft but 
no significant accumulations expected. A bit colder Tuesday night 
as clouds begin to clear and radiational cooling takes over. 


Wednesday...a ridge will move across the Great Basin with dry 
weather and some high clouds moving across the north. 


Long term...Wednesday night through Saturday. A ridge of high 
pressure centered over the east Pacific will give way to a storm 
system moving southeast Wednesday night and Thursday. There is still 
significant timing and strength issues with the various model 
solutions. The European continues to maintain the much deeper and 
faster upper level wave as it moves through northern Nevada. 
Meanwhile...the GFS keeps the best energy further north. Have made 
some changes mainly north of I-80 that splits the difference between 
the various models. Winds will be strong in the east...but at this 
time...it does not look to be at advisory levels. Afternoon highs 
will be mainly in the middle 30s to low 40s. 


Precipitation will gradually come to an end on Friday...with just a 
few isolated snow showers in the northeast. Afternoon highs will 
again be near normal with readings in the 30s. 


Saturday should be quiet with continued cool conditions with 
temperatures around normal. 


&& 


Aviation...northwest flow will continue to be moist...bringing 
periods of rain and snow showers to the forecast area for the 12-18 
hours. This will mainly affect the keko terminal...with mostly VFR 
conditions at the rest of the taf sites. 


&& 


Lkn watches/warnings/advisories... 
Winter Weather Advisory until 4 PM PST Monday for northern Elko 
County-Ruby Mountains and East Humboldt Range. 


Wind Advisory from 10 am to 7 PM PST Monday for northwestern Nye 
County-southeastern Elko County.
