Synopsis Unseasonably cool and wet weather will persist across
the region through the weekend, along with isolated thunderstorms
each day. Breezy to windy conditions are expected in central
nevada on Sunday afternoon.
Short term Tonight through Sunday
the next in the series of upper lows is currently dropping down
south from washington oregon in an inland trajectory. This is
spreading more showers across nevada, with some moderate to heavy
showers embedded in, particularly in northern nevada. This could
cause some local flooding this afternoon where cells are slow
moving or train.
The low opens up as it moves towards nevada tonight, but the trof
stays situated over the area. This will keep showers going
tonight through Saturday, with some isolated thunderstorms on
Saturday. On Saturday night, another upper low drops down, just
off of the coast, and drops down southward through california
through Sunday. This will keep the same showery pattern going
throughout nevada Saturday night through Sunday, with afternoon
isolated thunderstorms once again. A stronger south push will also
set up on Sunday afternoon, bringing breezy to windy conditions
to central nevada, though at this time they look like they will
not quite meet advisory criteria.
Highs this weekend will remain below normal in the 50's to the lower
60's, with lows in the mid 30's to mid 40's. Snow levels will
stay between 8000-9000 feet.
Long term Sunday night through next Friday. The main message
in the long term is unsettled conditions. Wet and cool weather
appears to maintain its grip across northern and central nevada
through the long memorial day weekend and possibly through the end
of may. The main system is an upper trough of low pressure that|
will remain over the western united states with multiple embedded
waves dropping south and into the region. The mean trough will
have a slightly positive tilt most of the time, periodically
bringing in colder air. Also, at times the low center will
retrograde out over the pacific that will help to bring in
moisture to the forecast area. Snow or graupel could possibly mix
in with the general rainy storminess. High chances for
precipitation will continue for northern nevada through at least
Thursday. Daytime temperatures will be below normal for this time
of year while overnight lows will be near normal.
Aviation... Scattered to widespread showers with isolated
thunderstorms will be possible during the early evening hours.
Some breezy conditions will remain, but are expected to diminish
after 02z tonight. Look for another round of showers with
isolated thunderstorms developing again tomorrow morning and
afternoon, especially at kbam, keko, and kely. Some afternoon
breezy conditions, most likely at the kely and ktph terminals,
will again develop after 18z as well.
Fire weather Cool and wet conditions continue. Isolated
thunderstorms are possible each afternoon and early evening, with
continued below normal temperatures and above normal rh's.
Hydrology Higher flows in rivers and creeks are expected to continue across
nevada as a result of recent rainfall as well as additional forecasted
rainfall through the next week. Some rivers and creeks have
returned to monitor stage and the humboldt has risen back into
minor flood stage at battle mountain. This crest should make it
into the comus area in the next couple of days. The level is not
expected to surpass minor flood stage.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
