Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Reno NV
507 AM PST Mon Dec 11 2017

.DISCUSSION...

High pressure will produce strong inversions with poor mixing and
ventilation conditions through Thursday. A very dry air mass will
keep humidity low, especially for midslopes and ridges above the
inversion layer. Inversions may ease by the end of the week and
next weekend as weak low pressure moves through the Pacific
Northwest.


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
