.SYNOPSIS...High pressure through mid week with a dry and warmer
period. Expecting a pattern change late next week with increasing
clouds and even a slight chance for some showers over northern


.SHORT TERM...Tonight through Wednesday.

Ridge. Entrenched shallow cold air in the valleys, especially in
northern Nevada. Slooooooooow warming.

.LONG TERM...Wednesday night through next Sunday.

Ridge to start but an inside slider wave drops down the east side
of the ridge Wednesday-Thursday, weakening the ridge. The next
wave moves into the Great Basin Friday night through Sunday with
very limited moisture over only northern Nevada. Best chance for
precip will be north of Nevada in the Snake River region. For the
sake of consistency and collaboration, have allowed very low pops
to slide into northeast Nevada with low confidence at this time.
Still, clouds return.


.AVIATION...VFR at KWMC, KEKO, KELY, and KTPH through 00Z
Tuesday. There is a chance for VCFG at KEKO Monday before sunrise
through mid morning.
