Synopsis Mostly sunny skies with light winds can be expected
as students return to the classroom early this week. However there
will be some thunderstorm activity across eastern nevada on
Wednesday and Thursday. Then dry conditions will return by the
end of the week.
Short term Tonight through Tuesday evening. Dry conditions are
expected. The models are in good agreement for the short term
period. High pressure will be suppressed a bit by a synoptic low
feature moving across central and eastern canada. The result will
be slightly lower daytime temperatures and overnight lows dipping
into the 30s across parts of elko county.
Long term Tuesday night through next Sunday. Model agreement
holds pretty well through Thursday. There are some differing
solutions later in the week, however great basin weather should
not be affected.
Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. Dry conditions will
continue. A shortwave feature will be approaching the west coast
and begin to interact with a prominent negative-tilt ridge axis
extending from high pressure well-south of the 4-corners area of
the country. Low temperatures will range from the mid 40s to the
Wednesday afternoon through Thursday evening. The ridge axis will
shift towards a north-south orientation as the shortwave feature
moves into california. There will be some moisture introduced from
the pacific that will combine with a train of moisture sliding up
under the ridge. Cloud cover Wednesday may inhibit convection for
most of the day however by late afternoon, scattered
thunderstorms will be possible that could linger well into the
evening hours. Areas south of interstate 80 should be the focus of|
the moisture surge. Precipitable water values could reach to near
one inch by evening. There could be some thunderstorm recurrence
on Thursday, mainly from the ruby mountains and eastward, that
should dissipate rather quickly in the evening. High temperatures
will range from the mid 80s to the mid 90s. Low temperatures will
range from the mid 40s to the mid 50s.
Thursday night through Sunday. High pressure will expand once
again. The models are not in agreement with the movement of an
upper low pressure system approaching from the pacific. However
dry conditions should return. High temperatures will range from
the mid 80s to the mid 90s. Low temperatures will range from the
mid 40s to the mid 50s.
Aviation Vfr conditions are expected at kwmc kbam keko kely and
ktph through Monday afternoon. Westerly wind gusts to 30 kt are
possible through early this evening at keko.
Note: kbam TAF includes amd not sked due to missing clouds cigs.
Fire weather A weak cold front is bringing some breezy
conditions to northeast nevada today. Relative humidity values
will continue to be low. Thus critical fire weather conditions
are expected to continue across much of elko county through early
evening. There is a red flag warning in effect for fire zones 469
and 470 through 04z. West northwest winds will gust to 35 mph.
Otherwise, dry conditions will persist through Wednesday morning.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
