Temperatures warming to well above normal through early next week.
Breezy afternoon winds expected this weekend, especially north of
highway 50. The pattern may change later next week with the
possibility of thunderstorms returning.
Today a strong upper level jet intruding into the pacific northwest
will help to enhance the more typical westerly afternoon winds for
areas north of highway 50 in the sierra and western nevada. Plan for
wind gusts around 20-35 mph north of highway 50 developing this
afternoon and persisting late into the evening (possibly until
midnight for some locations). While these winds aren't overly
strong, they could impact recreation on area lakes, especially
pyramid lake, in the evening. Fire weather concerns will also be
enhanced as the breezy wind will combine with low relative
humidity to create some low-end critical fire weather conditions
for a few hours.
The flat ridge over ca nv will result in above normal temperatures
that will continue this weekend through at least the first half of
next week. Afternoon high temperatures will feel quite warm with
upper 90s and some 100s for western nevada valleys. Westerly winds
will help those temperatures to bump up a bit more than yesterday
afternoon, with overall temperatures running 3 to 5 degrees warmer.
Skies will be clear this weekend, except for passing high clouds at|
times. Keep an eye out for some shallow cumulus developing over the
sierra each afternoon. Warming aloft associated with the ridge
should limit any deeper convection.
We are still keeping an eye on thunderstorm potential for next week.
The latest simulations still focus on Wednesday and Thursday as the
possible days for southerly flow to increase moisture over the east
sierra and western nv. While confidence is high in well above
average temperatures, there still aren't any strong signals for a
significant surge of moisture. The tropical storm ivo, tracking
offshore of the baja california peninsula, would provide the best
moisture influx for this set up, but we will continue to monitor
its progress and track. Forecaster confidence in thunderstorm
chances for the second half of next week remains low. -edan
WidespreadVFR conditions with a few passing high clouds and some
flat afternoon cumulus over higher terrain though the weekend.
Afternoon westerly winds with gusts 20-25 kts can be expected today
and Sunday, strongest north of approximately us-50. The peak of the
wind speeds will be from approximately 22z-04z. -dawn

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.
