What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
Hot and dry weather continues with high temperatures 5-10 degrees
above average through Wednesday. A cooling trend is expected with
near average temperatures for the end of the week. Light winds
are forecast today with stronger afternoon breezes returning on
Monday and persisting through much of next week.

Short term
Shortwave ridge of high pressure will be directly over the region
today with clear skies, above average temperatures, and light
terrain driven winds. Temperatures will be quite warm the next
few days, with the hottest temperatures expected Monday when most
of western nevada will be around 100 degrees.

Afternoon winds will return on Monday and provide some relief
from the afternoon temperatures, but considering the humidities
will be in the single digits and low teens through much of the
region, you may need to bath in lotion (and drink extra fluids).

Trough of low pressure moving through the pacific northwest will
provide a boost to our normal afternoon zephyr winds on Monday,
mainly north of highway 50. This will create critical fire weather
conditions for parts of western nevada, especially in the basin
and range. We will issue a fire weather watch for west-central
nevada; more information about winds, humidity, and fuel status
can be found in the fire weather section below.

On Tuesday temperatures will cool a few degrees and afternoon
winds will return to 'near normal' for summer in western nevada.

Long term Wednesday through Saturday..

Once again there were only a few changes made to the extended
forecast this period. The biggest impact should be Wednesday where
winds were increased to account for another fast moving upper level
wave. That could bring a renewed round of fire weather concerns.

Less impactful changes were made to temperatures beyond Thursday.

Medium range deterministic models continue to struggle with the
forecast beyond day 5... Wednesday. That fast moving wave Wednesday
should kick up winds north of highway 50 again with gusts
approaching 35-40 mph by late afternoon.

Beyond Wednesday the models diverge in their solutions... And the gfs
is still having run-to-run intra-model consistency issues. It is now
taking a trough farther east before carving it deeper into the
eastern great basin late Friday into Saturday. The ECMWF remains
more consistent... And more progressive. GEFS ensemble members are
still showing enough spread in their solutions so that no particular
outcome is favored.

So... Overall the models are still trending toward some cooling for
late in the week... Just not as much as indicated earlier. With the
trough more likely to either stay well north of our area or dive
south well to our east... We will hold off adding any measurable
precipitation.

Aviation
Vfr conditions continue through much of the coming week. There is a
very... Very low end slight chance we could see some showers near the
oregon border by Friday.

The bigger impact will come from increased winds after today.

Following relative light winds today... Monday should see an increase
in westerly flow by the afternoon with surface gusts approaching 35
kts north of highway 50. Ridge top winds in the northern sierra and
across the basin and range country could reach 50 kts at times.

Tuesday remains breezy... Just not as strong as Monday. Then
Wednesday could be another day of winds on par with Monday.

Fire weather
Today is likely to be the last day this upcoming week with overall
light winds. Fire weather concerns really ramp up starting
Monday... But could be an ongoing feature through at least the middle
of the week.

A fast moving upper level wave of low pressure will bring increased
winds aloft and near the surface to many areas north of highway 50
Monday. Combine this with humidity values in the single digits for
areas east of highway 395 and you have the makings for critical fire
weather conditions. We expect wind gusts by Monday afternoon to
exceed 35 mph in many areas across western nevada. The best
information we have from our partners in the fire management
community indicates zone 453... The basin and range country... Has
cured fuels capable of carrying fire. The strongest winds are likely
to be north of interstate 80 (gusts to near 40 mph)... But all of
zone 453 could see gusts in excess of 30 mph. Thus... We will be
issuing a fire weather watch for zone 453 Monday afternoon and
evening. High temperatures from 100-105 in the basin and range
country are likely to compound problems Monday.

Our best information indicates fuels are not quite cured in zones
450... 458 and 278. We will likely see at least locally critical
conditions in those zones as well with regards to winds and
humidity.

Winds will be more typical for late june Tuesday... But still gusting
to near 30 mph. Another fast moving wave of low pressure aloft could
bring winds to the area Wednesday that are nearly as strong as those
expected Monday. This may lead to critical conditions again
Wednesday.

Gusty winds continue into Thursday and Friday... But highs will fall
a bit and humidity values will be a little higher.

Rev watches warnings advisories
Nv... Fire weather watch from Monday afternoon through Monday evening
nvz453.

Ca... None.
