Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Reno NV
506 AM PDT Tue Sep 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Gradually warming temperatures, low afternoon humidities, and light
northeast winds are projected most of this week. Mountain ridges
will see periods of gusty easterly winds today and tonight, while in
the valleys poor morning ventilation will occur at least through
Thursday. There is potential for a brush-by cold front Friday into
Saturday which could increase southwest winds some and bring low end
chances for light showers near the Oregon border.


Note:  Thunderstorms imply gusty and erratic winds.
