.SYNOPSIS...

Dry and breezy easterly winds this morning, becoming gusty over
the Sierra Crest and Tahoe Basin. Cooler temperatures will
continue through the weekend with rapidly warming daytime highs
into midweek to well above average. Another trough moving into the
west coast will bring cooler weather into next weekend with
breezy winds and chances for precipitation.

.DISCUSSION...

Cool temperatures around the region this morning with breezy north
to east winds, especially along the Sierra Crest. This will
continue to create choppy lake conditions, especially on Tahoe. A
few colder rural valleys may see freezing temperatures this
morning. Similar conditions are expected over the weekend as low
pressure deepens over the Great Basin keeping our region under
cool northwest flow.

Ridging will build into the west coast next week with a strong
warming trend for the first half of next week as temperatures warm
to 10+ degrees above average by midweek when daytime highs in the
valleys will reach back into the mid 80s.

By the end of next week into the weekend ensemble models are in
fairly good agreement with another trough of some flavor moving
into the west coast. This will likely bring cooler temperatures
back to the region by the following weekend along with a day or
two of breezy winds. Precipitation chances increase by next
weekend and into the following week as most ensembles show the
trough continuing to deepen over western US. -Zach

.AVIATION...

VFR conditions are expected through the weekend with northerly
breezes prevailing this afternoon. Northerly winds will
strengthen some on Sunday as a cold front brushes across northern
Nevada. While no precipitation is expected, some isolated areas
of blowing dust may be possible at times mainly across KNFL and
KHTH along with lower cloud ceilings. Fuentes
