Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern and Central Nevada
National Weather Service Elko NV
216 AM PDT Sun May 27 2018

.DISCUSSION...Another round of locally heavy rainfall is expected
across northeast parts of central Nevada today as a storm
system moves through the region. Small hail, lightning and
potential flooding are concerns especially over saturated soils
from rainfall yesterday as well as burn scars. Showers will push
farther east Monday into eastern Nevada with drier and warmer
conditions for Tuesday. Another Pacific trough will bring more
showers and thunderstorms to the state for the middle of the week.

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
