Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Elko NV
340 AM PDT Mon Apr 23 2018

.SYNOPSIS...A cool day is on tap for northern Nevada this
afternoon, but a warming trend will begins by Tuesday. Daytime
highs will be approaching 80 degrees by the middle portion of this


.SHORT TERM...Today through Wednesday. No major weather concerns
in the short term and overall forecast confidence is high.

Guidance continues to run too warm for overnight lows, therefore
adjusted temps downward by an average of 5 degrees. Most cooler
valleys will see temps near or just below the freezing mark.

Temps will warm into the 70s and 80s by Tuesday and Wednesday. Dry
weather is expected to prevail in the short term.

.LONG TERM...Wednesday night through next Monday.

A more favorable flow pattern for daytime convection across the
state sets up for the latter part of the week. Mid-level moisture
axis in south-southwesterly flow and daytime heating will promote
a few showers and thunderstorms Thursday with a cold front moving
through the area late Friday into Saturday. Moisture lingers
across northwestern Nevada early next week providing some
opportunity for continued shower activity Sunday and Monday with
most likely locations across the western half of Nevada although
precipitation is not expected to be significant. Above normal
temperatures in the 70s and lower 80s Thursday and Friday will
moderate to the 60s and 70s as cooler air filters into the region.


.AVIATION...VFR conditions are expected through the next 24
