Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Elko NV 106 PM PDT Sat Apr 20 2024

Spring-like conditions will continue through the early portions of next week. Cooler weather with a return to light showers will commence later Tuesday into the mid-week portion.

Tonight through Sunday night. Skies are sunny to mostly sunny across the area this afternoon. There is a line of clearing noted to the west, which will continue removing east through the period. Winds will diminish tonight with overnight lows in the 30s and 40s.

For tomorrow, a flat ridge will remain over the forecast area through the period. The weather will be remain quiet through the day with some gusts to 25 mph possible. Expect high temperatures in the low to mid 70s. Dry and benign weather will continue during the overnight with lows in the 30s and 40s.

Monday through Saturday night

Warm and dry conditions with partly cloudy skies will continue into Monday with as a ridge axis will be over the region. Highs will range from the 60s across northern Elko county to upper 70s across northern Nye county. A few convective clouds are expected across the higher terrain of central Nevada Monday afternoon but with a dry sub cloud-layer in place little rain will reach the ground. Probability of any measurable rainfall Monday remains below 10%. However, virga could bring some gusty winds to the area.

A transition to a more active weather pattern begins on Tuesday as a trough approaches the U.S. West Coast. A subtle short wave disturbance embedded within broad southwest flow aloft ahead of the main trough axis along with low-level convergence along a developing deformation axis will provide some forcing to generate a few showers and thunderstorms across mainly northeastern Nevada Tuesday afternoon. Again, not much rainfall is expected with chances of measurable rainfall less than 30%. Winds across central Nevada will be elevated from the southwest.

For Wednesday, additional Pacific moisture will allow for more widespread showers and thunderstorms along an axis from around northwestern Nye county into much of northern and northeastern Nevada. Chances of wetting rains are higher in this area reaching up to 0.20" in some locales but snow levels will remain quite high so snow will not be an issue in terms of impacts. With additional cloud cover and moisture Wednesday will bring temperatures down a bit with highs reaching into the 60s with lows holding steady int eh upper 30s to lower 40s.

An active wave pattern bringing cooler temperatures and additional, potentially considerable, rain and mountain snow to the state is expected for the latter part of the week. Timing and areal coverage of precipitation is expected to change in the coming days but the overall pattern suggests a pretty busy pattern to continue into next weekend.

Dry with VFR conditions at all terminals over the next 24 hours. Occasional mid and high clouds are expected. West- northwest winds of up to 10 knots at all TAF sites today, before light drainage winds return tonight.

Many streams, creeks, and rivers across northern and central Nevada continue to observe elevated flows. Mostly dry conditions are expected through the weekend and into early next week, however temperatures also continue trend warmer which will help to accelerate the melting of mid and high elevation snowpack.

The Bruneau River is currently just below action stage, but may rise to action stage in the coming days.

The Humboldt River at Battle Mountain is currently in action stage and expected to slowly recede over the coming days.

The Owyhee River near Wildhorse is currently in action stage and expected to gradually rise in the coming days, forecast to reach minor flood stage in the Wednesday timeframe.

The Owyhee River near Mountain City is expected to remain in action stage for the next several days with a forecast rising to minor flood stage next week.

Wildhorse Dam is currently in action stage and is expected to gradually rise, but remain below minor flood stage over the next several days.

The Humboldt River at Comus is expected to reach action stage later today. Additional rises are forecast with the river reaching near flood stage in the Tuesday timeframe.
