Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Reno NV
123 PM PDT Wed Jun 28 2017

.SYNOPSIS...

High pressure off the west coast will gradually build inland
through Friday, keeping dry conditions over the region.
Temperatures near seasonal averages today will slowly warm up
through this weekend, and remain above average through the July
4th holiday. Mainly light winds are expected through the upcoming
week, except for typical afternoon and evening breezes.

.DISCUSSION...
Typical summer weather continues through the weekend as high
pressure strengthens across the Sierra and western Nevada.
Temperatures will be slowly warming up through the work week with
high temperatures in the mid to high 90s for the lower valleys and
80s in the Sierra. Late afternoon zephyr breezes are expected each
day with wind gusts 20-35 mph.

A couple of weak troughs swing through the region over the weekend
which will flatten the ridge, slow the warmup for Saturday/Sunday,
and enhance the afternoon/evening winds. Afternoon and evening wind
gusts will be around 25 to 30 mph with the potential for choppy
conditions on Lake Tahoe late in the day this weekend. The 4th of
July still looks uneventful with above normal temperatures, typical
late day breezes (nothing extraordinary) and minimal chances for
thunderstorms. Dry conditions appear to prevail through the weekend
so be sure stay hydrated and sunscreen up!

Later next week, there are some signs that the ridge will amplify
and build west. This would result in even hotter conditions and
eventually enough moisture working northwest around the ridge for
better chance of storms. Hohmann/Weishahn

.AVIATION...

VFR conditions. Afternoon and evening breezes to 20-25 kts are
expected today, with lighter winds on Thursday. Weak troughs will
brush past northern Nevada Saturday-Monday with increased wind gusts
up to 30kts possible. Dry conditions with very low thunderstorm
potential through the weekend. -Edan
