Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Reno NV
154 AM PDT Tue Oct 23 2018

.SYNOPSIS...

A mild and dry pattern with relatively light winds is expected for
northeast California and western Nevada through the weekend as a
building area of high pressure keeps the storm track well north of
the area. Colder and breezier weather is possible by early next
week as a cold front moves into the area.

&&

.SHORT TERM...

The mild and dry pattern continues for northeast California and
western Nevada this week as a ridge of high pressure strengthens
overhead. There will be periods of mid and high clouds (but no rain)
with the storm track remaining over the Pacific Northwest. Afternoon
winds will see a modest increase today and Wednesday.

Afternoon temperatures will remain near or slightly above normal
through Thursday with highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s for the
lower valleys and 60s for the Sierra valleys. -Snyder

.LONG TERM...Friday through Monday...

Upper ridge remains in place over the West Coast going into the weekend
with relatively warm temperatures aloft. Our high temperatures will
be approaching 15 degrees above normal by Saturday, with highs near
80 degrees in western Nevada and near 70 in the Sierra and northeast
CA valleys.

Models are coming into better agreement with a deep low pressure
system moving into the Pacific Northwest by Sunday-Monday that will
start to break down the ridge over the West Coast. The moisture with
this system will most likely stay well north of our area in WA/OR,
but we will likely see the tail end of the cold front pushing into
our area Sunday night. This will bring breezy conditions to the area
Sunday and Monday along with colder temperatures next week. By Tuesday
of next week we should be back down to near average for this time of
year with highs in the low 60s for western Nevada and 50s in the
Sierra and northeast CA. -Hoon
