Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Elko NV 204 PM PDT Sat Aug 8 2020

SYNOPSIS. Quiet and dry conditions are expected through the weekend Next week. another system will be moving north of the state, increasing the likelihood for more thunderstorms.

SHORT TERM. Tonight through Monday evening. There is a weak boundary moving through the CWFA this afternoon. Cumulus build-ups are occurring but mostly influenced by terrain. A small cell popped over Mt. Callaghan in southern Lander County as the boundary passed over 19z-20z . some cloud flashes but no cloud to ground lightning. There were some cloud flashes over the Adobe Range north of Elko as well. Models did pick up on this boundary and it is expected to dissipate by late afternoon. Models are in very good agreement for the short term period. The weekend will be a short dry period. Another system will bring increasing chances for precipitation as early as Monday afternoon.

Tonight through Monday morning. High pressure will be strong enough to bring dry conditions to the Great Basin. High temperatures will be in the 90s. Low temperatures will range from the upper 40s to the mid 50s.

Monday afternoon and evening. Another low pressure system will be pushing south from Canada. Models are deriving some precipitation on Monday absent significant instability at that time. Could be mostly virga but this is a little sooner than previously modeled. Boosted pops more in line with the SREF model along highway 50. High temperatures will be in the 90s.

LONG TERM. Monday Night through Saturday.

Monday evening could still see a lingering isolated thunderstorm firing up over central NV but quickly dampen by midnight. These quiet conditions are not expected last long. The trailing edge of an upper trof lifting into the northern Rockies and central Canada will inject just enough energy into the Great Basin to allow some mid-level moisture to sneak past a now weakened upper ridge. This brief upper pattern change will enable a more southerly upper flow to draw some mid-level moisture into northern Nevada which in turn will increase the risk of isolated wet/dry TS Tuesday afternoon across the the region. Ensemble guidance still shows a measure of uncertainty as to timing and coverage, but the ensuing moistening of the regional environment and instability could enhance fire weather concerns due to strong outflows and dry lightning as convection fire-ups across the region. Some storms over northeast NV could bring precipitation heavy enough to increase a flash flood concern but confidence is low at this point in the forecast period. By Wednesday the TS risk will shift with the available moisture and instability into northeast NV but will mainly of the isolated dry variety.

Quieter and drier conditions are expected through the later half of the week as higher pressure builds and exerts itself westward into eastern NV. But model guidance is universally hinting at a surprise by the weekend as a low risk for isolate storms return to the region. Temperatures should be at, or just above average with highs in the upper 80s and 90s and lows in the 50s to low 60s.

AVIATION. VFR conditions continue over the TAF sites with some afternoon cumulus buildups over higher terrain and local gusty winds ranging 15-20kts.

FIRE WEATHER. More stable conditions are anticipated through Monday morning however still expect some afternoon cumulus. Early next week another low pressure area will first drop south, then move eastward across Canada. This will bring a few days with isolated thunderstorms.

LKN WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

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.
