.SYNOPSIS...Mainly clear skies and dry conditions will prevail
through the weekend with temperatures remaining above normal.


.SHORT TERM...Today through Thursday

The region will be under the influence of a strong high pressure
ridge today. The ridge will retrograde westward very temporarily
into the Pacific on Wednesday, leaving Nevada in a northwest and
then a northerly flow on Thursday. A Pacific Northwest trough will
quickly drop into the central U.S.on Thursday, leaving Nevada on
the tail end of its weak cold front that will pass through the
state essentially dry, except for maybe some clouds in northeast
Elko County. High temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees above
normal today and Wednesday and then cool down slightly, though
barely noticeably, on Thursday. Winds will continue to be on the
light side.

.LONG TERM...Thursday night through Tuesday.

The Great Basin region will remain under predominantly north-
northwest flow Thursday night through Saturday as a ridge of high
pressure anchors itself over the West Coast. Another dry cold
front will move through the state Monday reducing temperatures
about 5 degrees. A few clouds but no precipitation are expected
with this cold front with the stronger dynamics passing well to
the east of the region. Overall, very seasonable but dry
conditions will exist across the northeast NV with high
temperatures in the 60s and lows generally in the 30s.


.AVIATION...VFR conditions expected at all terminals through
