.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRY WEATHER WITH A WARMING
TREND THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.

&&

.SHORT TERM...TONIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS
OVERNIGHT AND REMAINS ALONG THE WEST COAST THROUGH SATURDAY FOR
DRY CONDITIONS AND A WARMING TREND THROUGH THE PERIOD. DAYTIME
TEMPERATURES SHOULD REACH THE MID 50S TO MID 60S BY SATURDAY...
WHICH IS 10 TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. HOWEVER...WITH GOOD
RADIATIONAL COOLING AT NIGHT...MIN TEMPERATURES MAY ACTUALLY BE A
FEW DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE WITH READINGS IN THE TEENS TO LOWER 20S.

BEAUTIFUL SPRING WEATHER DURING MOST OF THE LONG TERM WITH
TEMPERATURES WELL ABOVE NORMAL...INTO THE 60S. THE GREAT BASIN WILL
BE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF HIGH PRESSURE THROUGH AT LEAST TUESDAY. BY
TUESDAY THE MODELS SHOW SOME DIVERGENCE WITH A GENERAL SOUTHWESTERLY
FLOW OVER THE GREAT BASIN AND A TROUGH MOVING ACROSS THE WESTERN
STATES. TUESDAY THE GFS AND GEFS BEGIN TO BRING MOISTURE INTO THE
WESTERN PART OF NEVADA WHILE THE EC AND CANADIAN MODELS SHOW A
DEEPER TROUGH OFF THE WEST COAST AND THE RIDGE HANGING ON FOR ONE
MORE DAY. WENT WITH A DRIER SOLUTION AS MOST MODELS KEEP TROUGH AT
BAY ON TUESDAY. BY WEDNESDAY LOOKS LIKE GOOD CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION
FOR THE AREA AS THE TROUGH MOVES CLOSER TO THE AREA SO WENT WITH A
BLEND OF MODELS ON POPS AND SKY. LOOKS LIKE SNOW LEVELS WILL REMAIN
HIGH...WITH MAINLY VALLEY RAIN...HOWEVER STILL A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY
ON HOW THIS WILL EVOLVE SO STAY TUNED. RLC
