National Weather Service Reno NV
248 AM PDT Sun Oct 21 2018
A mild pattern with light winds and above average afternoon
temperatures will continue this week for northeast California and
western Nevada. A weak low pressure system moving across the
region may bring a few light showers to far eastern Churchill and
Pershing Counties through Monday.
Little change was made to the short term forecast this morning. A
fairly tranquil and mild pattern will continue with light winds and
highs near or slightly above average through the first part of next
week. It will remain dry for most (exceptions below) areas of
northeast California and western Nevada.
A moisture surge is still expected for central and eastern Nevada
today as an upper disturbance moves over that region. This could
still bring a few light showers to eastern Pershing and Churchill
Counties, mainly this afternoon and tonight as the wave moves by
to the east. The HRRR is recently showing a few showers making in
into southern Mono and Mineral Counties this afternoon but little
support is noted in the most recent SREF as well as the NAM/GFS/EC.
With this in mind, will leave the running 5-10% chance for showers
with no mention in the forecast as it may wind up just being some
flat cumulus for the central Sierra and White Mountains. -Snyder
.LONG TERM...Wednesday through Saturday...
Dry weather is expected through next week as high pressure strengthens
over CA/NV. We will likely see periods of mid and high clouds over
the region as the storm track will remain in the Pacific Northwest,
keeping precipitation out of our forecast area. Temperatures remain
above normal into next weekend with highs in the 70s across western
Nevada and 60s in the Sierra and northeast California. -Hoon
No impacts to aviation today with VFR conditions and light winds.
Low pressure moving over central and eastern Nevada could bring a
few light showers into far eastern Churchill and Pershing Counties
today and tomorrow. -Hoon
