Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Reno NV
536 AM PDT Mon Aug 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Thunderstorms remain in the forecast through midweek with increasing
coverage Tuesday and Wednesday. Storms will get progressively
wetter over the next couple days, lessening the risk of new fire
starts, but also increasing the flash flood risk. Drier conditions
with more typical westerly afternoon breezes are expected Thursday
and Friday with lighter winds and warming temperatures next weekend
as a ridge builds into the west.


Note:  Thunderstorms imply gusty and erratic winds.
Note:  Please see operating plan for detailed zone descriptions
