.SYNOPSIS...Mostly dry weather along with above normal
temperatures are on tap this weekend. A few showers are possible
late Sunday into Monday and Tuesday across northern and eastern


.SHORT TERM...Today through Sunday. A dry southwest flow will
bring dry weather along with above normal temperatures through
most of the weekend. Late Sunday very isolated showers are
possible in the south western most portion of the CWA. Highs
temperatures will be in the upper 60s to the mid 70s with
overnight lows in the 30s. Breezy conditions Sunday afternoon
across central NV with southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph.

.LONG TERM...Sunday night through next Friday. Latest guidance is
showing a little more moisture over the region next week with the
cwa under southwest flow aloft. Still some discrepancies between
the GFS and ECMWF models with respect to location and amounts of
QPF early next week as the trough energy approaches Nevada from
the west. At this time the best chances for a little rain look to
be Monday into Tuesday...then again later in the week in the
Friday to Saturday period. Southwest flow aloft through the long
term will help keep temperatures above normal all week.


.AVIATION...VFR conditions at all terminals today with partly
cloudy skies and light winds.


.FIRE WEATHER...Dry weather with above normal temperatures through
the weekend. Breezy southwest winds across central NV Sunday
afternoon. A few showers possible across eastern and northern NV
Sunday night through Tuesday.
