Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern and Central Nevada
National Weather Service Elko NV
236 AM PST Fri Nov 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...Gusty winds and rain/snow showers will end from
northwest to southeast this afternoon and early evening. An
influx of dry and cooler air will allow skies to clear out for the
weekend and provide a couple of very cold nights. Another weaker
system could produce more showers across mainly northern Nevada
on Monday. Look for above normal temperatures next week with
a chance of additional showers across mainly northern parts of the
state mid to late week, including Thanksgiving Day.

Note:  See Fire Weather Discussion in the Area Forecast Discussion
for more info
Note:  Thunderstorms imply gusty and erratic winds
Note:  CWR means precipitation totals will be more than 0.10 inches
Note:  Winds in the extended forecast are average daytime winds
