SYNOPSIS

Gusty winds will bring areas of critical fire weather conditions this afternoon, with another round of stronger winds late Sunday into Monday. Temperatures will not be as hot today, with further cooling through the weekend and bottoming out well below average on Monday. Other than a chance of showers well north of I-80 on Monday, dry conditions will prevail through next week.

DISCUSSION

Key Points:

* Gusty winds ahead of a dry cold front will bring areas of critical fire weather conditions to much of western NV today.

* Temperatures will start to trend downward today, with further cooling to near mid-June averages over the weekend.

* For Monday. another cold front will bring stronger winds, increased fire weather concerns, and further cooling with highs 10-15 degrees below average.

Thunderstorm activity on Thursday was mainly over northern Mono and southern Douglas counties with rain gauge reports of 0.10-0.50 inch. Outflows produced more cells with lesser rain amounts across Lyon and Mineral counties, but a few stronger gusts of 50-60 mph reported around Hawthorne-Walker Lake-Schurz.

For today, above average temperatures will continue but it will be the "coolest" of the most recent 10 days as highs ease back to the lower-mid 90s for western NV valleys, and upper 70s-lower 80s for Sierra communities. The main impacts today will be due to gusty winds producing choppy lake waters and increased fire weather concerns--see the Fire Weather section below for more details.

This weekend will finally see a return to typical mid-June high temperatures in the mid 80s for western NV/lower-mid 70s near the Sierra (in case we may have forgotten!). Weak troughing across CA-NV will keep breezy W-NW winds each afternoon, with speeds down a bit on Saturday but possibly increasing again by late Sunday.

For Monday, a secondary shortwave drops farther south into northern CA/NV, with some guidance scenarios showing upper level jet winds of 100+ kt. This could lead to another day of stronger wind gusts--depending on how far south this trough digs in and also on the timing. The cold front associated with this trough may push through more quickly on Sunday night/early AM Monday, with leftover gradient breezes during the day Monday. We'll see our coolest day of the week on Monday, with highs only in the lower 70s for western NV and 60s for eastern CA and northwest NV.
Increased cloud cover and shower chances well north of I-80 to near the OR border could even keep temperatures below 60 in these areas through Monday.

For the rest of next week, temperatures look to rebound to near average by midweek with weak troughing near the west coast, then warming up (90+ degrees for western NV valleys) by the end of next week as a high pressure ridge attempts to rebuild over the southwest US/Four Corners area. Dry conditions are likely to prevail with modest zephyr breezes each afternoon. MJD

AVIATION

A dry, stable southwest upper flow will ensure VFR conditions through the 24 hour forecast period. Look for enhanced afternoon westerly breezes from a cold front passing over the Sierra into western NV with gusts to 25-35 kts for main terminals. Winds will diminish later this evening between 04-06Z, then become light overnight into Saturday morning. More typical afternoon breezes return Saturday afternoon with gusts 20-25 kts. With the exception for another round of enhanced breezes Monday with passage of a dry cold front, expect little change from mostly dry conditions, more typical afternoon breezes, and increasing temperatures that bring afternoon density altitude concerns. -Amanda

FIRE WEATHER

* Dry and windy conditions will bring a multi-hour period of critical fire weather conditions to the Sierra Front and Basin & Range this afternoon as the trailing edge of a dry cold front passes through the region. Sustained west-southwest winds 15-20 mph with gusts to 25-35 mph, coupled with daytime relative humidities dropping to 10-15%, will create a 3-6 hour window of Red Flag conditions across the aforementioned areas, where finer fuel moistures have reached critical thresholds. Therefore, Red Flag Warnings remain in effect for 2-10 PM today.

* Winds will remain breezy into the weekend, yielding locally elevated fire weather conditions both Saturday and Sunday as well. There is also increasing forecast confidence that another dry cold frontal passage on Monday could bring another round of widespread critical conditions to the region.

* It is advised to avoid any activities that could cause a spark! Even during periods of sub-critical fire weather conditions, multiple 100+ acre fires have flared up in the Truckee Meadows over the past few days. Therefore, a heightened concern for a fire start should be maintained. -Amanda
