AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE RENO NV
208 PM PST WED MAR 4 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN OVER THE WEST INTO THE START OF NEXT
WEEK WITH WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS. LOW PRESSURE MAY REACH THE
CALIFORNIA COAST BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.

&&

.SHORT TERM...

NO CHANGE TO THE ONGOING FORECAST WITH HIGH PRESSURE OVER
CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA THROUGH THE WEEKEND. AFTERNOON HIGHS WILL
CLIMB INTO THE MID 50S AND 60S THE NEXT FEW DAYS. OVERNIGHT LOWS
WILL REMAIN ON THE COLD SIDE IN THE VALLEYS DUE TO VERY DRY
CONDITIONS AND LITTLE TO NO CLOUD COVER. FOR TONIGHT, OVERNIGHT
LOWS IN THE COLDEST SIERRA VALLEYS WILL DROP INTO THE SINGLE
DIGITS, WHILE THE NEVADA VALLEYS COOL OFF INTO THE TEENS TO LOW
20S. BRONG

.LONG TERM...SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...

NO BIG CHANGES MADE IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST. THE RIDGE OF HIGH
PRESSURE WEAKENS SLIGHTLY AS WE GO INTO NEXT WEEK, AS PIECES OF
ENERGY DROP ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN
ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH NEXT WEEK WITH HIGHS IN WESTERN NEVADA PUSHING
BACK TO NEAR 70 BY MONDAY. DRY AIR WILL MAKE FOR BIG DIURNAL
SWINGS WITH COLD MORNINGS AND WARM AFTERNOONS.

BY THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEK, IT DOES LOOK LIKE MODEST MOISTURE
WILL REACH NORTHERN CA/NV. LATEST RUNS OF THE ECMWF AND GFS ARE
BOTH SHOWING THIS POTENTIAL, BUT THE ECMWF DEFINITELY LOOKS MUCH
BETTER THAN THE GFS. IT`S NOT LOOKING LIKE A MAJOR STORM AT THIS
TIME, BUT ITS LOOKING BETTER THAT WE COULD SEE DECENT MOISTURE
INTO THE SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA WEDNESDAY AND BEYOND IF
EVERYTHING LINES UP WELL. HOON

&&

.AVIATION...

LIGHT WINDS AND VFR CONDITIONS THROUGH FRIDAY, DUE TO HIGH PRESSURE
OVER THE REGION. HOON

&&

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