Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Reno NV
553 AM PDT Tue Aug 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Widespread showers and scattered thunderstorms are expected today
with additional storms possible on Wednesday. Wetting rains are
expected with any storms that develop over the next couple days,
which will lessen the risk of new fire starts. There is an increased
flash flood risk in this pattern especially for steep terrain and
recently burned areas. Drier conditions with more typical westerly
afternoon breezes are expected Thursday and Friday. A significant
warming trend is on tap for the weekend as a ridge builds across the
west.


Note:  Thunderstorms imply gusty and erratic winds.
