Quiet weather prevails this week with warm and dry conditions
continuing along with typical late day breezes. Temperatures will
remain within a few degrees of average this week before heating up
again by the weekend.
A dry southwest flow will prevail this week with temperatures
within a few degrees of average over the next few days before
heating up again by the weekend as high pressure strengthens.
Overall, little change in the forecast as latest model guidance
remains consistent with a slightly more amplified trough mid-week
resulting in slightly cooler and breezier conditions on Wednesday.
The trough doesn't look amplified enough however to trigger
precipitation, but should mainly see an increase in mid and high
clouds. Some northerly surface flow will prevail on the backside
of the trough on Thursday as a weak surface front moves through
For the remainder of the weekend, high pressure becomes
reestablished with high temperatures returning into the upper 90s
across western Nevada valleys with 80s for Sierra valleys. Typical
afternoon westerly winds will prevail each afternoon. Fuentes
VFR conditions expected this week with a dry and stable pattern in
place. Typical late afternoon/early evening wind gusts around 20
kts possible each day with slightly breezier conditions possible
Wednesday as a weak upper level trough moves through the
region. Afternoon turbulence due to low level instability is also
possible each day with no precipitation expected. Fuentes
