Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Reno NV 149 AM PDT Sat Jun 22 2024


* Hot this weekend with afternoon breezes returning. Today will be the hottest day with western NV valleys reaching or exceeding 100 degrees.

* There is a 10-20% chance of showers and maybe a storm or two south of Highway 50 Tuesday. Otherwise, the dry and breezy conditions will prevail through the middle of next week.

* Temperatures ease back slightly late next week, but there are indications things may heat back up again as we go into July.


* A hot weekend is in store as temperatures reach their peak today and then only slowly ease early in the upcoming week. The chance of seeing 100 degrees at Reno-Tahoe Intl Airport this afternoon is 75% with 100 degrees almost a certainty in the hottest valleys of western NV. Unlike the past several days, afternoon breezes will return this afternoon/evening and remain with us through the middle of next week as a mean trough sets up across the PacNW. Winds may enhance Sunday and again midweek as shortwaves brush the region, especially northwest NV.

* A dry southwest flow will keep us stable for the upcoming week with the exception of Tuesday-Wednesday when some mid level moisture may briefly sneak around the upper ridge ahead of the midweek shortwave trough. The GEFS/EPS indicate PWATs approaching 0.90" south of Hwy 50 although extensive mid level cloudiness may limit instability. So we could just see a bunch of clouds and few showers. A 10-20% chance of showers/storms was introduced Tuesday afternoon for now.

* Temperatures "cool" to around 5 degrees above average by Thu-Fri as the midweek trough passes. However, ensemble clusters are quick to warm us back up with 70% of the members indicating 100 degree temperatures again across hotter western NV valleys as we head into July.



* Heat building over the region may cause some density altitude issues this weekend. Lower valley terminals will hover near 100 while Sierra terminals reach into the mid-upper 80s.

* Typical SW-W winds return this afternoon/evening with most gusts 20-25 kts. These winds will more or less stay with us during the upcoming week with short durations of breezier conditions possible, especially across northwest NV Sunday and again around Wednesday of next week.



* A dry southwest flow and unseasonably hot weather will continue the fuel curing process. Overnight recoveries remain poor with humidity dropping well below 15%. Afternoon breezes return this afternoon and persist into much of next week, with most gusts staying just below critical levels at 25-30 mph. One place to watch is eastern Lassen County into northern Washoe County on Sunday when 1-3 hours of near critical fire weather conditions may be met as sustained winds approach 20 mph.

* While it is still a ways out, a trough brushing the northern Great Basin could enhance winds around the Wednesday timeframe, especially along the Sierra Front and areas north of I-80.
Temperatures 5-10 degrees above average, low humidity levels and a bump in winds may push some areas to critical fire weather.
