Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Reno NV
132 PM PDT Fri Sep 22 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will end this evening
with gradual clearing overnight. A cold morning is expected
Saturday with some hard freezes in outlying valleys. High pressure
will build along the coast this weekend and last into next week
with a warming trend.

.DISCUSSION...
Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue through
sunset. A few showers are likely to continue overnight near
Pyramid Lake and possibly Tahoe from lake effect. Away from the
lakes, temperatures will get cold tonight with lows in the 20s and
30s Saturday morning. Will upgrade the Freeze Watch to a Warning,
but it is not going to be very widespread. Many outlying valleys
and normally colder spots will see their first freezes from
eastern Lassen County to West Central Nevada. Also, many Sierra
Valleys will likely also have to deal with fog. The Sierra Valley
was particularly dense this morning and will likely see a return
tonight.

High pressure then builds in for the rest of the weekend and will
remain into next week. Temperatures will warm about 5 degrees each
day, eventually rising above normal by late in the week. Winds
will be light, but there will be a light NE surface gradient
keeping moderate inversions in the valleys. This will keep the
temps from seeing an abrupt warmup. Into next weekend, a system my
try to flatten the ridge a bit with increased winds followed by a
reduction in temperatures. Something to be watched, but it does
not look as significant as what we saw this week. Wallmann
