Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Reno NV 1206 PM PDT Mon Apr 22 2024


High pressure will maintain well above normal temperatures with mostly dry conditions today. Isolated showers will be possible this afternoon into tonight for Mono County and western Nevada.
The active weather continues Tuesday and beyond, including much cooler temperatures by the week's end and daily chances of showers and thunderstorms.


* Temperatures & Winds: Temperatures peaked yesterday across the region with most places getting into the low 80's. A gradual cooling trend will take place this week, with high temps only reaching around 60-65 degrees on Friday across lower valleys.
Wednesday and Thursday we'll see a slight increase in the winds to 35-40 mph from a shortwave trough passing through the region, otherwise we'll have our typical zephyr kicking in each afternoon gusting to 30 mph.

Precipitation Chances: * Today: Starting off around 3 PM this afternoon, there's a 10-15% chance of light rain showers along the Sierra crest in Alpine and Mono counties. By 5 PM today, those showers are expected to increase slightly in coverage, extending up to US-50 (15-20% chance). While there's not an abundance of instability this afternoon, these high-based storms may still be able to produce lightning and gusty outflow winds up to 40 mph. By 8 PM tonight, the storms will have spread more across western NV, as far north as I-80. By 11 PM any remaining convection will be very weak and most likely virga.

* Tuesday: Storms will be more widespread (30% chance) across western NV and northeast CA in the afternoon hours, with heavier rainfall rates and a better chance for lightning. Current CAMs are showing higher CAPE values, higher effective shear, and increased divergence aloft, which are all indicators that we may see some better structured/slightly stronger thunderstorms. With that said, keep an eye on the sky tomorrow!

* Wednesday Through Friday: Scattered showers/thunderstorms return Wednesday afternoon, mainly for Mono and Mineral counties.
Elevations above 9000 feet along the Sierra crest and White Mountains may see up to 2" of snow with these showers. Once this shortwave passes through, another deeper trough will dig south over the Pacific NW on Thursday. Widespread precipitation chances will be a result of this system moving into the region. Current long range models are projecting up to 2" of Sierra snow and up to 0.10" of valley rain through Friday.

* Extended Outlook: Long range models are in agreement of a ridge taking over this weekend, creating a short break in the active weather. GFS and EC ensembles are showing next week as mostly dry but cooler, although additional rounds of precip look likely for the first weekend in May.



VFR airfield conditions will the rule for the remainder of this afternoon through Tuesday morning. The only exceptions will be some cumulus buildups along the Carson Range, as well as a 20% chance for some patchy morning fog around the the Martis valley to include KTRK. Shower and thunderstorm chances will remain <10% into the evening with typical westerly afternoon breezes gusting to 20kts that will diminish following sunset tonight.

Unsettled weather and a bump up in shower and storm chances, however, follows the departure east of the upper ridge through Tuesday.
Afterwards, upper level disturbances lifting E-NE across the Sierra into western NV will allow the northward intrusion of a thickening layer of mid-level moisture and increased instability from Tuesday onward. Anticipate more widespread rain and thunderstorm chances starting Wednesday with an increased potential for higher elevation Sierra snowfall later this week. -Amanda
