AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ELKO NV  
313 PM PDT MON OCT 23 2017  
   
SYNOPSIS
 
SUNNY AND WARM WEATHER WILL CONTINUE THROUGH  
WEDNESDAY. A WEAK COOL FRONT SHOULD PASS THROUGH NORTHERN AND  
CENTRAL NEVADA ESSENTIALLY DRY WITH LITTLE IN THE WAY OF CLOUD  
COVER EARLY THURSDAY. ANOTHER RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL REBUILD  
ALONG THE WEST COAST INTO THE GREAT BASIN LATER THIS WEEK WHICH  
WILL ALLOW A DRY AND PLEASANT FALL WEATHER PATTERN TO CONTINUE  
INTO THE WEEKEND.  
 

 
   
SHORT TERM
 
MONDAY EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY.  
 
A STRONG UPPER-LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM (597 DM) WILL CONTINUE  
TO BUILD OVER THE SIERRAS AND WESTERN NEVADA INTO TUESDAY. UNDER  
GENERALLY CLEAR SKIES WITH LIGHT WINDS, MODEL BLENDS HAVE BEEN  
SEVERAL DEGREES TOO COOL WITH DAYTIME MAXES, AND SLIGHTLY TOO  
WARM WITH MINS AT NIGHT. HAVE MADE NECESSARY ADJUSTMENTS TO  
AEMPERATURE GRIDS IN BOTH THE SHORT AND LONGER TERMS.  
 
UPPER HIGH QUICKLY WEAKENS ON WEDNESDAY AS DOMINANT CENTER WITH A  
NORTHWARD EXPANDING RIDGE REORGANIZES WELL OFF THE WEST COAST.  
THIS WILL ALLOW A PACIFIC NORTHWEST TROUGH TO QUICKLY PLUNGE  
SOUTHEASTWARD WHILE TAKING THE BEST DYNAMICS, DEEPER MOISTURE, AND  
PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE NORTHERN ROCKIES. NEVADA WILL BE ON THE  
TAIL END OF A WEAK COOL FRONT THAT SHOULD PASS THROUGH THE STATE  
ESSENTIALLY DRY WITH LITTLE CLOUD COVER EARLY THURSDAY.  
TEMPERATURES SHOULD COOL DOWN SLIGHTLY ON THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY,  
MAINLY ACROSS NORTHEAST NEVADA, BUT NOT TO THE EXTENT THAT THE  
MODEL BLENDS HAVE BEEN INDICATING.  
   
LONG TERM
 
FRIDAY THROUGH NEXT MONDAY.  
 
ANOTHER UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE WILL REBUILD ALONG THE WEST COAST FROM  
THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST INTO THE GREAT BASIN ON FRIDAY. THIS WILL  
EXTEND THE DRY AND MILD FALL WEATHER PATTERN WITH ABOVE NORMAL  
TEMPERATURES OVER THE WEEKEND. MORE UNCERTAINTY EXISTS FOR MONDAY  
AS ANOTHER WEAK TROUGH COULD POSSIBLY IMPACT THE REGION BY THEN  
WITH SOME PASSING CLOUD COVER AND PERHAPS THE CHANCE OF A LIGHT  
SHOWER OR SPRINKLE, BUT NOT SIGNIFICANT ENOUGH AT THIS TIME TO  
INCLUDE IN THE FORECAST.

VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED AT KWMC KEKO KELY AND KTPH
