.SYNOPSIS...DRY WEATHER PATTERN THROUGH NEXT WEEKEND. A BIT
WARMER TODAY BUT A COLD FRONT WILL BRING TEMPERATURES CLOSER TO
NORMAL STARTING WEDNESDAY.

&&

.SHORT TERM...TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL RISE
TODAY AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT BUT CONTINUED SUNNY.
WINDS WILL INCREASE TODAY WITH STRONGEST WINDS ACROSS CENTRAL
NEVADA AS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT INCREASES AHEAD OF THE
AFOREMENTIONED FRONT. SMOKE HAS DECREASED ACROSS THE AREA SO LEFT
IT OUT OF GRIDS. WINDS MAY INCREASE OVER NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
TOMORROW AFTERNOON AS FLOW BECOMES MORE WESTERLY SO SMOKE MAY
FILTER BACK INTO NORTHERN NEVADA BY TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY...BUT
CONFIDENCE NOT HIGH DUE TO FACTORS WHICH COULD AFFECT SMOKE
MOVEMENT. WEDNESDAY LOW PRESSURE OVER THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WILL
TURN UPPER LEVEL WINDS MORE SOUTHWESTERLY WHICH WILL BRING IN AN
INCREASE IN MOISTURE WITH A FEW MORE CLOUDS WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON
ESPECIALLY ACROSS CENTRAL AND EASTERN NEVADA...ADDITIONALLY
TEMPERATURES WILL RUN 5 TO 10 DEGREES COOLER THAN TODAY DUE TO THE
COLD FRONT...BUT WILL BE NEAR AVERAGE.

.LONG TERM...WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY. BENIGN WEATHER WILL BE
THE RULE DURING THE LONG TERM PERIOD AS A WEAK LOW OFF THE NRN CA
COAST PUTS NRN AND CNTRL NV UNDER A MOSTLY DRY SOUTHWEST FLOW. THERE
IS SOME SPOTTY MID-LEVEL MOISTURE THROUGH MOST OF THE PERIOD THAT
WILL BE ENOUGH TO GENERATE SOME CLOUD BUILDUPS, BUT NO THUNDERSTORMS
OR PRECIP IS EXPECTED. TEMPS WILL BE NEAR NORMAL WITH HIGHS
GENERALLY IN THE MID 70S TO THE MID 80S.
