Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Reno NV
200 AM PDT Sun Aug 25 2019

.SYNOPSIS...

Temperatures will be well above normal through much of the
upcoming week, with the warmest conditions most likely Tuesday.
Expect breezy afternoon and evening winds today, especially north
of Highway 50. Dry conditions are expected through Tuesday, then
thunderstorm chances may return by the middle of next week.

.DISCUSSION...

Few changes needed to the ongoing forecast. Today will be breezy
once again, bringing choppy conditions to area lakes in addition
to heightened fire danger. Peak gusts of 15 to 30 mph are likely,
with the strongest winds mainly north of US-50. Otherwise, warm
and dry conditions continue with lighter winds going into the
start of the work week. High temperatures will once again hover
around the triple digit mark for lower valleys of western Nevada
Tuesday, bringing concerns for heat sensitive groups. The good
news is that low temperatures will cool into the 60s, bringing
some relief overnight.

We are still watching what will happen with the remnant moisture
from what is currently Tropical Storm Ivo. Wednesday into Thursday
seems to be the most likely time frame for the moisture to reach the
region, but how much moisture and the exact location varies
greatly between operational and ensemble model runs. Would
anticipate increasing clouds with chances for thunderstorms, but
we still have fairly low confidence in exact impacts. A strong dry
slot looks to scour out the moisture rather quickly by the end of
the week with increasing southwest winds as a trough approaches
the Pacific Northwest coast. -Dawn

.AVIATION...

VFR conditions will persist today, other than a few passing high
clouds and some flat afternoon cumulus over the mountains. Plan for
westerly winds with gusts 15-25 kts, strongest north of Highway
50. The peak of the wind speeds will be from approximately 22z-
04z. -Edan
