AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE RENO NV
245 PM PDT MON SEP 29 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE SLOWLY BUILDS IN THROUGH MIDWEEK WITH TEMPERATURES
REMAINING ON THE COOLER SIDE UNDER NORTHEASTERLY FLOW THROUGH
WEDNESDAY. THEN TEMPERATURES WARM ABOVE SEASONAL AVERAGES THURSDAY
INTO THE WEEKEND AS HIGH PRESSURE STRENGTHENS.

&&

.SHORT TERM...
THE UPPER LOW THAT BROUGHT US RAIN AND HIGH ELEVATION SNOW
CONTINUES TO SLOWLY PULL OFF TO THE EAST. A FEW SHOWERS REMAIN IN
THE GRASS VALLEY OF NORTHEAST PERSHING COUNTY, BUT THE REST OF THE
SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA IS DRY. EXPECT MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES
TONIGHT ALTHOUGH A FEW HIGH CLOUDS ARE POSSIBLE AHEAD OF THE NEXT
SYSTEM THAT IS MOVING INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. WITH THE CLEAR,
COOL NIGHT, SOME FOG IS LIKELY TO RETURN IN THE MARTIS VALLEY AND
PARTS OF WESTERN LASSEN/EASTERN PLUMAS COUNTIES. HAVE CONTINUED
THE MENTION OF FOG IN THOSE AREAS AGAIN TONIGHT.

QUIET TUESDAY AS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST SYSTEM BEGINS TO PUSH A
BACKDOOR COLD FRONT INTO NORTHERN NEVADA. ANOTHER MILD DAY TUESDAY
BEFORE THE FRONT PUSHES THROUGH DURING THE EVENING. THE FRONT WILL
BRING SOME LOCALLY GUSTY NORTH TO NORTHEAST WINDS BEHIND IT ALONG
WITH SOME SHALLOW COOL AIR. TUESDAY NIGHT WILL BE COLD IN PLACES,
BUT DO NOT EXPECT ANY WIDESPREAD FREEZING TEMPS. A COLDER DAY ON
WEDNESDAY ALONG WITH SOME DRYING NEAR THE SURFACE COULD RESULT IN
THE COLDEST NIGHTS SO FAR THIS SEASON FOR THURSDAY MORNING. PARTS
OF WESTERN NEVADA ALONG THE HIGHWAY 95 CORRIDOR COULD DROP A FEW
DEGREES BELOW FREEZING DEPENDING ON THE AMOUNT OF DRYING. NOT
ENOUGH CONFIDENCE TO ISSUE A FREEZE WATCH, BUT THOSE WITH
SENSITIVE PLANTS AND CROPS SHOULD CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE
SITUATION FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT/THURSDAY MORNING. WALLMANN

.LONG TERM...THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY...
HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE WILL REMAIN IN PLACE OVER THE SOUTHWEST US
INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK, KEEPING DRY CONDITIONS WITH LIGHT WINDS AND
VIRTUALLY NO CLOUD COVER OVER THE REGION. DAYTIME TEMPS IN LOWER
ELEVATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO WARM UP TO NEAR NORMAL OF MID-UPPER 70S
BY THURSDAY, THEN REACH THE LOWER-MID 80S FROM FRIDAY THRU MONDAY.
THE RIDGE MAY BEGIN TO FLATTEN A BIT BY MONDAY BUT IMPACTS ON
WEATHER WILL BE LIMITED. A FEW CIRRUS MAY ARRIVE WITH WINDS
BECOMING WEST BY MONDAY AFTERNOON BUT OVERALL SPEEDS SHOULD REMAIN
LIGHT. MJD

&&

.AVIATION...
IFR/LIFR CIGS/VSBY EXPECTED AGAIN LATER TONIGHT THRU TUES MORNING
IN THE FOG PRONE SIERRA VALLEYS INCLUDING KTRK. DURATION AND
COVERAGE OF FOG SHOULD BE REDUCED A BIT COMPARED TO TODAY, DUE TO
MORE TIME ELAPSED SINCE RECENT RAINS.

OTHERWISE VFR CONDITIONS WITH GENERALLY LIGHT WINDS ARE EXPECTED FOR
THE REGION FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. MJD
&&


.REV WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
NV...NONE.
CA...NONE.
