Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Reno NV
513 AM PDT Wed Aug 23 2017

...Record high temperatures possible this weekend...

.DISCUSSION...

One more afternoon and evening with isolated to scattered showers and
thunderstorms. Storms have the potential to produce heavy rain,
however, are likely to be drier than storms the past few days. New
lightning starts are possible outside of wet cores, but a widespread
outbreak is unlikely. Drier conditions with more typical westerly
afternoon breezes are expected Thursday and Friday. A significant
warming trend is on tap for the weekend as a ridge builds across the
west.

Note:  Thunderstorms imply gusty and erratic winds.
