Area Forecast Discussion

344 AM PDT Mon Sep 25 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Daytime and nighttime temperatures will continue to
slowly moderate through the week. Many locations will be in the
60s and 70s by the middle portion of the work week. We will also
be moving into a period of dry weather.


.SHORT TERM...Tonight through Tuesday.

Tonight/Monday morning - Another chilly night is expected across a
majority of the CWA. There could be some very isolated patchy fog,
but confidence is low.

Monday aftn - Expect another cool day with northerly flow across
the Silver State. Many areas will struggle to get out of the 50s
and 60s. No precip is expected, but a scattered to broken deck of
fair weather cumulus is expected.

Tuesday - Weak energy will slide south through the area and close
off around southern NV. This system is moisture starved, but a few
isolated showers in the higher elevations of central NV cannot be
ruled out. Another cool day is expected with highs in the 60s.

.LONG TERM...Tuesday night through next Sunday. This should be
mainly a dry period. Pacific high pressure will become progressive
and move east across the state. There is a low circulation west
of the 4-corners area of the country showing up in the models,
progged to undercut the ridge by Thursday. This interaction could
bring some additional cloudiness to eastern Nevada but
precipitation is not expected. Then, by next Saturday, before
another Pacific High can strengthen and expand, there may be
enough troughing over Nevada to bring a slight chance for
precipitation to northeast Elko County. At this juncture, models
are not in agreement with this scenario, so will continue dry
conditions. High Temperatures will rise through the 60s Wednesday
and into the 70s for the remainder of the week. Low temperatures
will generally rise through the 30s to around 40 degrees by the
end of the week.


.AVIATION...VFR conditions are expected at KWMC KEKO KELY and
KTPH through Tuesday morning.


.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
