Synopsis
Warm days and cool nights can be expected the next several days with
generally light winds. A pattern change is looking more likely for
the weekend going into the first week of october with periods of
strong winds, cooler temperatures, and increasing chances for wet
weather.

Discussion
Warm and very dry conditions will persist as high pressure builds
across the west this week. Daytime highs will be near 90 degrees by
Thursday and Friday for the western nevada valleys, but mornings
will remain on the cool side.

Area of low pressure still on track to bring changes to the quiet
weather for the weekend. The cutoff low will undercut the amplifying
ridge bringing increased winds to the sierra and western nevada for
the weekend. The best dynamics and moisture associated with the
low will remain north of the region, with low chances for
precipitation. The gusty winds along with the dry conditions do
raise concerns for increased fire danger on Friday and Saturday.

Check out the fire weather section below for more details.

By next week the forecast really becomes quite complicated with
tropical storm rosa becoming an influencer on incoming weather.

Operational models as well as their ensemble members are quite
divergent with how to handle the pattern change for next week, so
uncertainty is pretty high with the forecast for now. For
example, on next Wednesday the GFS expands the eastern pacific
ridge across the west, while the ECMWF brings in another cutoff
low with the potential for precipitation. Despite the dramatic
differences between the operational simulations, I would plan on
unsettled weather for much of next week, including cooler
conditions and increased potential for precipitation.

Aviation
Light winds will prevail through Thursday withVFR all areas. The
next impacts will arrive Friday night and continue into the
weekend as an upper low moves through the pacific northwest. This
will result in increasing winds starting at the ridges Friday
night and then across all areas by Saturday afternoon. Latest
simulations show ridge gusts approaching 80+ kts while surface
wind gusts could exceed 35-40 kts along the highway 395 corridor
east to about highway 95. This would bring a period of turbulence
and llws to the northern sierra and western nv sat-sun. Hohmann

Fire weather
Main concern is this weekend with the upper low moving onto the
coast. The models have trended toward more of a glancing blow and
into the pacific northwest. As a result, northeast california and
western nevada will be more in the sweet spot for gusty winds and
low rh. In the meantime, it will continue to be very dry ahead of
the low with poor overnight rh recovery, but winds will be light
into Friday morning.

Winds increase a little Friday afternoon, but the main event will be
Saturday. The potential is there for some gusts 35-45 mph Saturday
afternoon with the strongest winds west of highway 95. Rh will
increase a bit as temperatures cool, but it still looks to be 10-20%
for minimums. The models have not been all that consistent with this
low, but if these trends continue and there is more consistency, a
fire weather watch may be warranted.

Sunday winds remain gusty, but it will be cooler. There will still
be some concerns over fire zones 273 459 that day if the winds
remain strong. Those southern areas do not look to see much
cooling with it remaining very dry. X

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.
