Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Reno NV
243 PM PDT Sat Oct 21 2017


Drier air moves into the region as high pressure builds across the
region. Warmer conditions are expected for the rest of this
weekend and next week as temperatures increase well above
seasonal averages.



Showers are dissipating in far northern Nevada as energy
associated with a passing wave exits into Idaho. This should be
the last precipitation for the near future and possibly for
October. There are some indications that a slider-type system
could move through late next week, but models have been trending
the storm track more into the Inter-mountain West rather than near
northern Nevada. Current consensus is for a dry, weakening
frontal boundary to switch winds more northwesterly late next

Winds will shift easterly by Sunday remaining generally light
through Monday. Ridge winds will begin increasing under this
easterly directed gradient and we could see some breezy winds
along the west shore of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Crest by Monday
night. Elsewhere, winds will be light. Wind switch more northerly
briefly later next week with passage of a dry frontal boundary;
slightly breezy winds will be possible north of Interstate 80 by

Otherwise, strengthening inversions will result in poorer air
quality through early next week. Mixing will improve by mid week
with some high temperatures potentially approaching records. Highs
Wednesday could be around 80 degrees from western Nevada with
low/mid 70s for Sierra valleys. Boyd



Generally VFR conditions are expected except from KTRK where
morning freezing fog is likely through Monday morning. Winds
become easterly Sunday and should enable some drying for KTRK by
Monday night. Ridge winds are expected become breezy by Monday
night with gusts up to 40kts especially over the Carson range and
the Sierra Crest. Boyd
