Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Elko NV
206 AM PST Wed Dec 13 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Dry conditions continue through Friday, although there
will be some clouds across the region today. A weak storm will
spread some light snow across northern NV late Friday afternoon
into Saturday. Dry conditions resume Saturday night into next


.SHORT TERM...Today through Friday. Patchy freezing fog is
possible across some of the valley areas of Elko County this
morning. High clouds are also moving in from the north this
morning which will lower to around 10000 feet by around noon due
to a weak shortwave passing by just to the east of the CWA. No
precipitation is expected in NV with this passing system. Clouds
diminish tonight with continued dry conditions through Friday

.LONG TERM...Friday night through Wednesday. A weak storm system
will be clipping NE NV Friday night through Saturday morning. At
this time, kept low chance pops in the mtns of NE NV. Models have
been inconsistent with how deep the trof is forecast across the
region. The mtns could see several inches of snow with valleys
generally an inch or less. This would kick winds up and lower aftn
highs on Sat. Gusty post frontal winds will be likely for SE Elko
County, where gusts to around 40 mph will be possible. After this
system a dry period should remain over nevada with the next chance
for a system late next mid week. However there is a great deal of
model variance in the far long term so the chance for the next
system is very uncertain at this time.


.AVIATION...VFR conditions at all TAF sites next 24 hours. There
is the possibility of freezing fog in the valleys near KEKO but
the chances are to slight to represent in the Taf.
