Strengthening high pressure off of the pacific coast will bring
decreasing winds and a warming trend going into the first half of
this week. Much colder temperatures and breezier conditions are
possible by next weekend.
The weather for much of the week will be fairly steady state with
only minor day-to-day changes expected. The main change in the
weather however looks to arrive toward the second half of the
weekend when much cooler temperatures are possible.
For the majority of the upcoming week, surface high pressure will
become established with an upper level ridge developing just
offshore of the west coast. This will allow for warming
temperatures, lighter winds, and drier conditions. Highs will
return to the 70 degree mark across western nevada on Monday with
low mid 70s by Tuesday (upper 60s to near 70 for sierra valleys).
A broad area of troughing will pass to the east of nevada by
Wednesday and will result in a few degrees of cooling, but overall
temperatures should remain pleasant and generally a few degrees
above season averages heading into the weekend.
The trough will result in the development of easterly breezes
Wednesday and Thursday with some moderate gusts possible for
ridge tops across the sierra. Dry air aloft may also result in
weak overnight humidity recoveries across mid-slopes and high
terrain through Friday morning.
Inversions will be fairly weak in nature with afternoon heating
looking to be sufficient to mix out lower valley inversions. The|
exception may be Thursday however as the ridge axis builds farther
inland leading to a more prolonged inversion with some slight air
quality degradation possible.
Ensemble model runs have been showing better consensus as of late
in digging an inland trajectory trough across nevada and
california by Sunday. This would send a strong backdoor cold front
through the region resulting in much colder temperatures and
gusty northeast winds across western nevada and the sierra into
early next week. Although the chances for light precipitation will
increase by Sunday into early next week, overall amounts don't
look too impressive due to the fronts drier inland trajectory.
High pressure will strengthen this week with much lighter winds
at the terminals through Tuesday. Areas of light turbulence
however will still be possible across the sierra through Monday
morning with gusts of 40-45 knots possible before weakening
through Monday afternoon.
Overall,VFR conditions expected much of the week outside of some
localized areas of fog at ktrk. A dry, weaker wave will push a
surface front through the region by the middle of the week
resulting in a prevailing wind shift, but nothing in the way of
precipitation until possibly the end of the week. Fuentes

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
