AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE RENO NV  
200 AM PDT SUN AUG 25 2019  
   
SYNOPSIS
 
 
TEMPERATURES WILL BE WELL ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH MUCH OF THE  
UPCOMING WEEK, WITH THE WARMEST CONDITIONS MOST LIKELY TUESDAY.  
EXPECT BREEZY AFTERNOON AND EVENING WINDS TODAY, ESPECIALLY NORTH  
OF HIGHWAY 50. DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH TUESDAY, THEN  
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES MAY RETURN BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.  
 

 
   
DISCUSSION
 
 
FEW CHANGES NEEDED TO THE ONGOING FORECAST. TODAY WILL BE BREEZY  
ONCE AGAIN, BRINGING CHOPPY CONDITIONS TO AREA LAKES IN ADDITION  
TO HEIGHTENED FIRE DANGER. PEAK GUSTS OF 15 TO 30 MPH ARE LIKELY,  
WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS MAINLY NORTH OF US-50. OTHERWISE, WARM  
AND DRY CONDITIONS CONTINUE WITH LIGHTER WINDS GOING INTO THE  
START OF THE WORK WEEK. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL ONCE AGAIN HOVER  
AROUND THE TRIPLE DIGIT MARK FOR LOWER VALLEYS OF WESTERN NEVADA  
TUESDAY, BRINGING CONCERNS FOR HEAT SENSITIVE GROUPS. THE GOOD  
NEWS IS THAT LOW TEMPERATURES WILL COOL INTO THE 60S, BRINGING  
SOME RELIEF OVERNIGHT.  
 
WE ARE STILL WATCHING WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH THE REMNANT MOISTURE  
FROM WHAT IS CURRENTLY TROPICAL STORM IVO. WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY  
SEEMS TO BE THE MOST LIKELY TIME FRAME FOR THE MOISTURE TO REACH THE  
REGION, BUT HOW MUCH MOISTURE AND THE EXACT LOCATION VARIES  
GREATLY BETWEEN OPERATIONAL AND ENSEMBLE MODEL RUNS. WOULD  
ANTICIPATE INCREASING CLOUDS WITH CHANCES FOR THUNDERSTORMS, BUT  
WE STILL HAVE FAIRLY LOW CONFIDENCE IN EXACT IMPACTS. A STRONG DRY  
SLOT LOOKS TO SCOUR OUT THE MOISTURE RATHER QUICKLY BY THE END OF  
THE WEEK WITH INCREASING SOUTHWEST WINDS AS A TROUGH APPROACHES  
THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST COAST. -DAWN  
 

 
   
AVIATION
 
 
VFR CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST TODAY, OTHER THAN A FEW PASSING HIGH  
CLOUDS AND SOME FLAT AFTERNOON CUMULUS OVER THE MOUNTAINS. PLAN FOR  
WESTERLY WINDS WITH GUSTS 15-25 KTS, STRONGEST NORTH OF HIGHWAY  
50. THE PEAK OF THE WIND SPEEDS WILL BE FROM APPROXIMATELY 22Z-  
04Z. -EDAN
