Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Reno NV 253 AM PDT Fri Apr 12 2024


A transition to a more active pattern is expected this weekend as a low pressure system slowly tracks across the Sierra and western Nevada. Expect periods of strong and gusty winds along with rain and mountain snow showers. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will also be possible over the weekend. Our seasonably mild weather will cool over the next few days with drier and seasonable temperatures looking more likely next week.


An incoming spring low pressure system will slowly meander across the Sierra and Great Basin this weekend leading to periods of gusty winds, mountain snow and valley rain showers along with scattered thunderstorm chances.


* South-southwest winds will be on the increase this morning as the low nudges inland with wind gusts of 60-80 mph materializing along the Sierra crest. For the lower valleys today expect widespread S-SW wind gusts of 30-40 mph before stronger S-SE winds develop Saturday afternoon along Mineral, Pershing, and portions of S.Mono County along US-6.

* Wind gusts upwards of 40-60 mph are possible in these areas which could result in crosswind hazards for high profile vehicles, especially along US-95 near Walker Lake. Blowing dust could be a concern downwind of dry lake beds/desert sink areas along portions of US-50 and I-80. Otherwise expect impacts to outdoor recreation including rough lake waters.

Precipitation and Thunderstorm Chances:

* Friday: Shower and thunderstorm coverage will increase Friday afternoon as forcing from diffluence aloft from the approaching low combines with modest instability (200-300+ J/kg). 15-30% precipitation chances will be in place along the eastern Sierra into western Nevada mainly north of US-50. Areas roughly northward of Susanville-Gerlach will see 40-60% chances along with a 25% chance of thunderstorms. A few of these cells could be better organized with stronger 0-6km wind shear in place allowing storms to develop strong outflows and hail.

* Saturday: Precipitation chances increase on Saturday as the core of the low moves inland. This will yield 80-90% chance for showers across the Sierra with 40-60% chances across far western Nevada. Thunderstorm chances will continue Saturday afternoon with the best potential north of US-50 across W.Nevada extending into Lassen and Plumas counties. Snow levels will begin to descend from near 8500' on Friday to 6000-7000' by Saturday afternoon which could lead to some travel slow downs across Sierra passes with 1-3 inches possible.

* Sunday: Snow levels further drop between 4000-5000' with snow showers possible as a banded area of precipitation develops on the backside of the low. An additional 1-3" will be possible along the Sierra from the Tahoe Basin northward into Lassen and far northern Washoe counties. Localized areas up to 5" are possible in isolated stronger cells.

Most precipitation will taper off late Sunday night as the low departs to the east. Conditions overall have trended a bit drier next week as a shortwave trough brushes by to the northeast.
However, this should aid keeping temperatures near season averages for much of next week. Fuentes


* Strong and gusty winds are expected on Friday leading to an increased potential for mountain wave turbulence and LLWS as winds at FL100 increasing to 40-50 kts. Surface winds will increase and peak during the afternoon/evening hours both days with widespread gusts 25-35 kts, locally stronger to 40 kts.

* On Saturday winds will vary between SE-SW through midday Saturday, but with a notable shift to the west along the Hwy 395/I-580 corridor by mid afternoon Saturday and across much of western NV by Saturday evening as a front surges through. Areas from KHTH- KNFL-KLOL will see stronger S-SE winds with gusts in excess of 50kt possible. This could yield areas of blowing dust across western NV reducing visibility below 1SM at times.

* Isolated-scattered showers will develop from the Sierra and Reno- Carson City area northward Friday afternoon, then spread to all areas Saturday. There will be a 10-30% chance of thunder each day, focused along the Sierra, far western NV and areas north of I-80.

* Snow levels will remain above most terminals although they could dip briefly to Sierra terminal elevations in heavier showers.
Expect periods of terrain obscuration and MVFR conditions in rain showers for Sierra sites and brief mountain top obscuration and MVFR conditions at lower elevations, especially along and behind the front Saturday. Fuentes/Hohmann
