AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE RENO NV  
331 AM PDT THU JUL 2 2020  
   
SYNOPSIS
 
 
AVERAGE SUMMER TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH INDEPENDENCE DAY  
WEEKEND. AFTERNOON AND EVENING BREEZES ARE EXPECTED THIS WEEK  
WITH SLIGHTLY INCREASED WINDS POSSIBLE EARLY NEXT WEEK. NO  
APPRECIABLE PRECIPITATION IS FORECAST OVER THE NEXT WEEK.  
 

 
   
DISCUSSION
 
 
NO MAJOR CHANGERS WERE MADE TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST. THE REGION  
WILL REMAIN UNDER A SOUTHWEST FLOW REGIME WHICH WILL PROMOTE  
CONTINUED DRY CONDITIONS, TEMPERATURES AROUND TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE  
SEASONAL AVERAGES, AND CURING OF FUELS ABOVE VALLEY FLOORS.  
 
IN GENERAL, AFTERNOON BREEZES WILL BE FAIRLY TYPICAL, GUSTING  
20-30 MPH. THESE SPEEDS COMBINED WITH LOW RH AND STEADILY CURING  
FUELS WILL RAISE SOME CONCERNS HEADING INTO THE INDEPENDENCE DAY  
WEEKEND. IT WOULD BE PRUDENT TO SUSPEND ACTIVITIES THAT WOULD  
CAUSE A SPARK NEAR DRY VEGETATION.  
 
ADDITIONALLY, THERE IS A WEAK 700MB TROUGH SWINGING ALONG THE  
OREGON BORDER SUNDAY WHICH COULD INCREASE AFTERNOON WIND SPEEDS  
MARGINALLY ALONG THE SIERRA FRONT AND MORE CONSISTENTLY CLOSER TO  
THE OREGON BORDER; GUSTS AROUND 30 MPH AND UP TO 35 MPH CLOSER TO  
THE OREGON BORDER. A MORE CONSOLIDATED 700/500MB TROUGH IS  
EXPECTED TO DIP INTO FAR NORTHERN NEVADA LATER ON TUESDAY AND  
COULD BUMP AFTERNOON GUSTS TO AROUND 35 MPH IN THE AFTERNOON FOR  
PORTIONS OF NORTHERN NEVADA. THERE WOULD BE SOME FIRE WEATHER  
CONCERNS WITH GUSTS TO 35 MPH EARLY NEXT WEEK.  
 
OTHERWISE, THERE COULD BE A FEW CUMULUS BUILDUPS IN THE VICINITY  
OF THE SWEETWATERS THIS AFTERNOON. CHANCES OF A SHOWER WERE  
BUMPED UP FROM RIGHT AT 5% TO 5-10% FOR TODAY. AFTER TODAY  
CONDITIONS REMAIN DRY WITH LITTLE CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION. IT'S  
TOO SOON TO TELL WITH MUCH CERTAINTY, BUT THERE COULD BE A FEW  
SHOWERS AND POSSIBLY A THUNDERSTORM OR TWO ASSOCIATED WITH THE  
TUESDAY SHORTWAVE. BEST CHANCES FOR A SHOWER/STORM WOULD BE NORTH  
OF A SUSANVILLE TO GERLACH LINE IF THE WAVE CAN PICK UP SOME  
MOISTURE ADVECTION. BOYD  
 

 
   
AVIATION
 
 
VFR CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST FOR THE REGION WITH TYPICAL AFTERNOON  
ZEPHYRS, GUSTS AROUND 25KTS, THROUGH SATURDAY. SOME SFC GUSTS TO  
30KTS BECOME MORE LIKELY SUNDAY-TUESDAY MAINLY NORTH OF HIGHWAY 50  
WITH A COUPLE OF TROUGHS MOVING THROUGH FAR NORTHERN NEVADA. NO  
LARGE SCALE PRECIPITATION/THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST, BUT A FEW  
CUMULUS BUILDUPS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN THE VICINITY OF THE  
SWEETWATERS AND NORTHERN LASSEN COUNTY TODAY. BOYD
