Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Reno NV
407 AM PST Wed Dec 13 2017

.DISCUSSION...

High pressure will produce strong inversions with poor mixing and
ventilation conditions through Thursday, with low humidity for
midslopes and ridges above the inversion layer. Inversions may ease
Friday and Saturday as weak low pressure moves through the Pacific
Northwest, but then return by Sunday as high pressure rebuilds off
the California coast.


Note:  Thunderstorms imply gusty and erratic winds.
Note:  Mixing Heights are in feet above ground level of the valley floors.
Note:  Please see operating plan for detailed zone descriptions
