Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Reno NV
526 AM PST Sat Dec 16 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A trough moving through the region will bring better mixing and
ventilation today. High pressure will build Sunday through Tuesday
for a return to valley inversions. A fast moving storm will bring
another chance of snow showers and gusty winds Wednesday before high
pressure blocks any storms late week through at least Christmas.

Note:  Thunderstorms imply gusty and erratic winds.
Note:  Mixing Heights are in feet above ground level of the valley floors.
Note:  Please see operating plan for detailed zone descriptions
