...Breezy, Cool, Unsettled Memorial Day Weekend...

Above normal temperatures through Thursday will give way to
cooler and more windy conditions by late this week and into the

WINDS: Winds will be noticeably stronger Thursday through
Saturday with wind gusts up to 40 mph for some locations in the
Sierra and western Nevada. The winds may produce areas of blowing
dust for the Basin and Range and create difficult travel and
recreation conditions, especially if you`re driving or towing a
high-profile vehicle, setting up camp and/or enjoying area lakes.
Be sure to have a plan and extra supplies if you will be outdoors
this weekend. Area lakes may be quite choppy Thursday through
Saturday, so check the conditions before you venture out and
always wear a life vest when on the water.

THUNDERSTORMS: There will be potential for showers and
thunderstorms continuing through much of the weekend. Any storms
that develop would be capable of lightning and gusty, erratic
outflow winds. Have multiple ways of receiving alerts, especially
if you are far away from sturdy buildings and vehicles.

FIRE CONCERNS: Be fire safe and smart this busy Memorial Day
weekend. If you are enjoying outdoor activities such as camping,
off-roading, or BBQing, be sure to have plenty of extra water
available and follow any local fire restrictions. Be extra
vigilant and cautious, and don`t be that guy or gal that ignites a
fire this weekend.
