Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Elko NV
242 AM PDT Sat Apr 21 2018

.SYNOPSIS...A beautiful weekend is on tap for the Battle Born
state with highs in the 70s across the region. A weak system will
clip northern Nevada on Sunday, but only a slight chance of
isolated showers or storms will be possible. Continued pleasant
weather is forecast into next week.


.SHORT TERM...Today through Monday. Forecast models have trended
slightly further north for the system on Sunday aftn/eve. There
is more than enough instability and upper level support for a few
isolated showers and thunderstorms, mainly along and north of
I80. The best chance will be across NE Elko County.

Temps will remain above average for the short term with highs in
the 60s/70s. Some valley locations below 4500 feet should eclipse
the 80 degree mark on Sunday. Would not be shocked to see the
lower 80s for highs in the Railroad Valley and other valley
locations near Sulphur and Jungo in southwestern Humboldt County.

.LONG TERM...Monday night through next Saturday. Ridging across
the region will promote dry and warm conditions through at least
Thursday. Above normal temperatures throughout the state will
occur each day with highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s.
Intrusion of some moisture is progged by the end of next week with
a few showers/afternoon thunderstorms possible Friday and
Saturday with trivial accumulations.


.AVIATION...VFR conditions with light winds are expected through
