Area Forecast Discussion . CORRECTED National Weather Service Elko NV 417 AM PST Mon Dec 9 2019
SYNOPSIS. Dry conditions under a ridge of high pressure are expected across the area today and Tuesday. A weak weather disturbance could bring light shower activity to northern Nevada Wednesday before a stronger, more moisture-laden storm system impacts the region late this week.
SHORT TERM. Today through Wednesday. Mid-level ridge axis moving into the region today will keep NV dry for the next couple of days. Light winds are expected as well under the ridge. A quick moving short wave will move through the Great Basin region Wednesday ushering in more cloud cover and opportunities for rain and snow. However, this fast moving system will result in light precip amounts with minimal impacts.
High temperatures will remain in the 40s for the next several days. Lows tonight will be coolest falling into the teens in many valleys with 20s beginning Tuesday night as cloud cover begins to increase ahead of the mid-level trough.
LONG TERM. Wednesday night through next Monday.
Confidence increased slightly in the medium range forecast (Wednesday night through Saturday), still a bit iffy in the longer range (Saturday night through Monday). Models bring a series of short waves across the Great Basin Wednesday night through Saturday night, with ample maritime tropical moisture. An atmospheric river appears more likely to set up Wednesday night through Saturday morning with its origin well south of Hawaii near the ITCZ. The current forecast takes this into account with a multiple day snow/rain event in northern Nevada with lower pops over central and eastern Nevada.
Total QPF from 12z Thursday through 18z Monday could range from around a tenth inch in central Nevada to a third inch in northwest Nevada, with maxes of 1.0 to nearly 3 inches in places like Jarbidge Wilderness, the Ruby/East Humboldts, and the Independence Range. Actual snow amounts will vary depending on the nature of the surface precip and this will in turn vary depending on the degree of cold advection in the waves coming over the Sierra. At this time, the waves appear to be coming in a quasi-zonal flow, which will limit cold advection.
If the worst cast scenario occurs in the total snow amounts, we could be looking at a mix of rain and snow in the valleys with accumulations in the above mentioned time frame of a few to several inches of wet, partially melting snow, to two to three feet in the above mentioned mountains.
Again, confidence drops toward the end of the long range. Stay tuned.
AVIATION. Upper trough axis will continue to move well east and south of Nevada this Monday morning with northerly flow just above the surface. Recent light precipitation and clearing could lead to patchy freezing fog (VCFG) and/or a low stratus deck forming at any of the TAF sites before daybreak. Otherwise, quiet weather will prevail with relatively light winds and mild temperatures for December as a progressive mid-level ridge of high pressure moves through the state on Tuesday.
LKN WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
