Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Elko Nevada 
847 PM PDT sun Sep 21 2014 


Synopsis...a slow-moving low pressure system will produce 
scattered showers and thunderstorms into this evening. Dry weather 
returns early this week...with a warming trend through Wednesday. 
A strong Pacific storm system is expected to produce strong gusty 
winds in Nevada Thursday and Friday...followed by valley rain and 
mountain snow next weekend. 


&& 


Update...thunderstorms have diminished greatly...and those that 
remain appear too weak and are moving too fast to produce locally 
heavy rainfall which could cause additional flooding. 
Therefore...have cancelled the Flash Flood Watch. No other changes 
at this time. Rcm

Previous discussion... /issued at 130 PM / 


Synopsis...a slow-moving low pressure system will produce 
scattered showers and thunderstorms into this evening...with 
locally heavy rain and localized flooding possible. Thunderstorms 
will diminish quickly after sunset. Dry weather returns early this 
week...with a warming trend through Wednesday. A strong Pacific 
storm system is expected to produce strong gusty winds in Nevada 
Thursday and Friday...followed by valley rain and mountain snow 
next weekend. 


Short term...tonight through Tuesday. 


Satellite imagery is impressive this afternoon, with wound up 
cutoff low spinning over Nevada. Cyclone's warm front has rotated 
stratiform rain back to Humboldt County, with a destabilizing warm 
sector and plenty of sunshine south of Interstate 80. Storm Prediction Center 
mesoanalysis places cape of 500-1500 j/kg south of I-80 as of 
noon, with lifted index as low as -6 in the southeast zones. Instability 
this afternoon will yield scattered to numerous thunderstorms 
through about 7 PM, capaple of locally heavy, potentially flooding 
rains. Strongest storms will produce outflow winds to 55 miles per hour and 
small hail, but bulk shear is less than impressive, so severe 
threat will be limited. Storm Prediction Center mesoscale discussion outlines this 
nicely. Will keep Flash Flood Watch going as convective 
temperatures are obtained across central Nevada this afternoon. 
Temperatures running well below normal, which is serving to mute 
the convective trends underneath the upper low. Weakening solar 
angles of early autumn sun not helping either. 


Monday...cutoff low weakens to an open wave and ejects rapidly 
out of Nevada, with shortwave ridging dominating by Monday 
afternoon. Kept a few thunderstorms mentioned on the higher 
terrain of Elko County Monday afternoon, as suggested by most 
models. Dry weather will return to most locales, along with 
temperatures returning to near late September normals. Behind the 
exiting shortwave, SW winds will pick up noticeably Monday 
afternoon, averaging 10-20 miles per hour. 


Tuesday...warmer and drier, with low to middle 80s common in the 
afternoon. SW winds again breezy, 10-20 miles per hour with a few higher 
gusts. Bt 


Long term...Tuesday night through next Sunday. Models in agreement 
with a Short Ridge over the County Warning Area shifting into Utah by 12z Wednesday. 
Thus a warm southwest flow develops over Nevada by Wednesday 
afternoon with breezy winds developing mainly over the western 
zones. By Thursday the models bring a decent trough over the area with 
the trough axis just off the West Coast. This suggests a windy day 
Thursday afternoon over the entire County Warning Area...especially over the western 
zones and eastern slopes of the mountains due to downslope. Except 
for a few mountain rain showers in Humboldt County Thursday...precipitation 
is not really expected until sometime Friday when the cold front 
passes through the County Warning Area. GFS is the fastest model...but slower 
than 24 hours ago...having the trough axis along the California-Nevada border 
while the ec and Gem having it right along the West Coast. For 
Friday have lowered probability of precipitation in central Nevada since southwest flow mainly 
means dry conditions for this area. By Saturday...big differences 
in models with the ec strongest and slowest. Thus have kept probability of precipitation 
low at this time for next weekend. Jh 


Aviation...expect VFR ceilings and visible all terminals next 24 hours. 
Thunderstorms with heavy showers at times will over the sites 
through this evening. Jh 


Fire weather...scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms 
will continue into this evening, with locally heavy rain likely 
and flash flooding possible. Fire crews in the field should use 
caution near any burn scars, where rainfall runoff will be 
ehhanced. Enhanced lal of 4 to locally 5, through about 7 PM, 
before instability and convection dwindle quickly after sunset. 


Monday...dry weather returns to all fwz, with the exception of 
minimal convection possible on the higher terrain of Elko County 
Monday afternoon. SW winds increase to 10-20 miles per hour after noon. 


Tuesday...warmer and drier, with min relative humidity falling back to 15-20%. 
Afternoon temperatures back in the low to middle 80s, with again SW winds of 
10-20 miles per hour in the afternoon. 


Wednesday and Thursday...S/SW winds will increase each afternoon, 
as a strong Pacific trough approaches Nevada. 


Current models suggests the strongest winds will occur Thursday or 
Friday, but min relative humidity may remain elevated enough to alleviate any 
wind/relative humidity concerns. Expect much colder air, valley rain and 
mountain snow next weekend. Bt
