Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Elko NV
225 AM PDT Tue Sep 26 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Daytime and nighttime temperatures will continue to
slowly warm as the week wears on. Many locations will be in the
60s and 70s by mid-week. We are also in a period of dry weather.


.SHORT TERM...This morning through Wednesday. Weak energy is
sliding south through the area this morning with clouds/elevated
moisture showing up in WV imagery. No showers are associated with
the system, since the it appears to be moisture starved. However
this will likely keep some clouds around and temps down this aftn.

As the system slides south, it will close off around southern NV.
By Tuesday evening and Wednesday, the system will gather moisture
from the south and begin its journey back to the north through
UT. As of now, no showers are expected, but we cannot rule out a
few isolated higher elevation showers in White Pine County.
NAM/HRRR/GFS/EURO all show the system moving north through UT with
no showers expected. The SHREF is the more robust solution,
showing showers moving north through eastern NV on Wednesday. This
solution appears unlikely as it is an outlier. Temps will again
remain on the cool side, due to an increase in cloud cover.

.LONG TERM...Wednesday night through Monday. Dry weather on tap
for Thursday and Friday as high pressure resides over the region.
Low pressure system moving across the Pacific Northwest Friday
night through Saturday night will brush northern NV bringing a few
showers to the far north near the Oregon/Idaho border. Dry weather
returns Sunday and Monday.


.AVIATION...VFR conditions next 24 hours.


.FIRE WEATHER...No fire weather concerns expected over the next several
days. Daytime and nighttime temperatures will slowly warm, with many areas
reaching afternoon highs in the 60s and 70s by the middle to latter
portion of this the week. No significant wind or precipitation is
