Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Reno NV 216 AM PST Thu Feb 20 2020

SYNOPSIS.

Quiet weather continues with dry conditions and seasonable temperatures remaining in place heading into the weekend. A weak system will bring chances for light precipitation across Mono and Mineral counties on Saturday. Another brush by system Sunday into Monday will bring chances for light showers along the Oregon border with breezy winds region-wide.

SHORT TERM.

No major adjustments were necessary to the previous forecast. Generally, precipitation chances were increased across Mono/Mineral Counties for Saturday while some low precipitation chances were introduced as far northward as Alpine County.

After a continuance of dry conditions and seasonable temperatures today, cloud cover increases through early Saturday as low pressure off the southern California coast begins to shift inland. This low will bring some chances of light snow mainly for Mono/Mineral Counties. Models are trending a little farther northward with the low's trajectory, but QPF remains light. Based on latest guidance, only an inch or so of snow accumulation is expected at this time for southern Mono County with up to four inches possible for higher terrain of the central Sierra.

One caveat: if models continue to trend northward with the low's trajectory, a few inches of snow could be possible across Mono County. This only represents about a 1 in 5 chance of occurrence at this time.

With the upper low well entrained in upper level flow, the surface circulation will rapidly translate eastward Saturday pulling moisture with it. Conditions should quickly dry for Mono/Mineral Counties by Saturday afternoon and early evening. Boyd

LONG TERM. Sunday onward .

Precipitation chances for the system on Sunday into Monday are dwindling. The ridge is proving to be too strong of a player and the trough that previous looked to drop into western Nevada is now a glancing blow, with the bulk of the energy diving into Utah and Colorado. The way it looks now, a few very light showers will be possible across far northern Nevada (near the Oregon border), but ensemble probabilities of 0.10" have dropped to around 10-20%.

The progged trajectory of this system also means wind impacts won't be as great. It still looks breezy Sunday into Monday, but not as strong as previously forecast with most valley gusts peaking in the 20-30 mph range. Considering it hasn't taken much wind to kick up dust off of dry playas, still think blowing dust could be an issue, especially for I-80 east of Fernley and US-95. The other concern will be enhanced fire danger. We have already seen two wildfires in the region this month and fuels are anomalously dry for mid- February. Please use caution and remember with conditions like this, it only takes one spark to start a blaze.

With the trough being shunted east, it allows the ridge to strengthen across the west, bringing temperatures back to about 10 degrees above normal. Currently, Reno is sitting at the 4th warmest winter [Dec-Jan-Feb] on record (since 1893) and this is only 0.1 degree below the 3rd spot. Looking at other sites around the region that have longer periods of record (40+ years), there is a wide variation, with anything from 5th warmest to 20th warmest. Despite the warm days, the dry air mass has allowed for decent radiational cooling at night and the average daily temperature takes both the high and low into consideration, which accounts for the differences. We still have a week and a half to go to make it official, but it certainly has been mild during the day.

There are no signals for major storms through the end of February, but some signs are starting to show up that March could get more active. Time will tell, but we'll sure take what we can get after this long dry stretch. -Dawn

AVIATION.

VFR conditions continue with light winds. Generally, low level winds will be easterly, with winds aloft turning southwesterly today. A few very light showers are possible over the Sierra south of Tahoe Friday into Saturday. While some mountain obscuration is possible going into the weekend, IFR conditions are unlikely -- less than a 20% chance. -Dawn

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
