...LAKE WIND ADVISORY FROM 11 AM THIS MORNING TO 10 PM PDT THIS EVENING...

TODAY: Mostly cloudy in the morning then clearing. Highs 73 to 83. Southwest winds around 10 mph increasing to 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph in the afternoon. Ridge gusts up to 50 mph.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 42 to 52. West winds 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph becoming southwest around 10 mph after midnight. Ridge gusts up to 50 mph.
SUNDAY: Sunny. Highs 71 to 81. Light winds.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 39 to 49. Northwest winds around 10 mph in the evening becoming light.

MONDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 43 to 53.
TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY: Clear. Highs 72 to 82. Lows 40 to 50.

SYNOPSIS (2:14 AM PDT)...LOW PRESSURE MOVING ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WILL CREATE DRY AND BREEZY CONDITIONS TODAY. NEAR AVERAGE TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED FOR THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES WILL WARM A FEW DEGREES EARLY NEXT WEEK WITH SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES AND BREEZY CONDITIONS POSSIBLE BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: AN UPPER LEVEL JET AT THE BASE OF A PACIFIC NORTHWEST TROUGH WILL NOSE INTO NORTHEAST CA AND NORTHERN NV TODAY, WHILE A WESTERLY SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENT STRENGTHENS ACROSS THE SIERRA AND WESTERN NV. THESE INGREDIENTS WILL CONTRIBUTE TO SUSTAINED WESTERLY WINDS GENERALLY 15-25 MPH THIS AFTERNOON WITH GUSTS UP  TO 35 MPH. AS SUCH, LAKE WIND ADVISORIES FOR HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS ARE IN EFFECT AFTER 11 AM TODAY FOR WESTERN NEVADA AND THE SIERRA INCLUDING PYRAMID LAKE AND LAKE TAHOE. GUSTY WINDS COMBINED WITH LOW HUMIDITY WILL ALSO CREATE CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. RED FLAG WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT FOR THE SIERRA FRONT AND PART OF WESTERN NV, SEE OUR FIRE WEATHER DISCUSSION BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION. HIGH PRESSURE WILL SLOWLY DEVELOP WHILE THE AFOREMENTIONED TROUGH MOVES EAST ACROSS THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS AND INTO THE NORTHERN PLAINS SUNDAY AND LABOR DAY. THIS WILL PROVIDE CLEAR SKIES, NEAR NORMAL AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES, AND LIGHT WINDS FOR THE EASTERN SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA.

LONG TERM WEATHER....TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...THE UPPER RIDGE OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN STATES WILL START TO WEAKEN AS TROUGHING DEVELOPS OVER THE WEST COAST FOR THE SECOND HALF OF NEXT WEEK. DRY SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL RETURN TO THE REGION WITH WINDS BECOMING BREEZY AT TIMES DUE TO THE ENHANCED EAST-WEST THERMAL AND PRESSURE GRADIENTS. WE WILL SEE A COOLING TREND THROUGH THE WEEK WITH COOLER TEMPERATURES AND LOWER HEIGHTS  ALOFT. FORECAST CONFIDENCE REMAINS MODERATE AS MODELS STILL IN DISAGREEMENT BEYOND WEDNESDAY ON THE DETAILS OF THE POSITIVELY TILTED TROUGH OVER CA/NV. NONETHELESS, PRECIPITATION CHANCES ARE NEAR ZERO THROUGH THE EXTENDED DUE TO THE LACK OF MOISTURE AND SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT.

FIRE WEATHER...A SHORTWAVE WILL PUSH THROUGH NORTHEASTERN CALIFORNIA AND WESTERN NEVADA TODAY AS A JET DROPS INTO A FAVORABLE POSITION TO INDUCE STRONGER SURFACE WINDS THIS AFTERNOON. NORTHWEST FLOW WILL PRODUCE WINDS GENERALLY 15 TO 20 MPH WITH GUSTS AROUND 30 TO 35 MPH ESPECIALLY ALONG THE SIERRA FRONT AND AREAS SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 80. MEANWHILE, TEMPERATURES WILL DECREASE FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST AS  COOLER AIR PUSHES SOUTH BEHIND THE DRY FRONT. THIS WILL RESULT IN HIGHER RELATIVE HUMIDITIES FOR EXTREME NORTHWESTERN NEVADA AND NORTHEASTERN CALIFORNIA. HOWEVER, DAYTIME HEATING WILL STILL POSE A THREAT IN CONJUNCTION WITH WINDS ALONG THE SIERRA FRONT AND THE GREAT BASIN WITH AFTERNOON HUMIDITIES LOWER THAN 15%. THEREFORE, A RED FLAG WARNING WAS ISSUED FOR ZONES 450, 453, AND 459. ADDITIONALLY, LOCALIZED RED FLAG CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE FOR SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF 458, BUT WITHOUT ENOUGH COVERAGE OR DURATION OF CONDITIONS TO WARRANT A WARNING. CONDITIONS IMPROVE TONIGHT INTO SUNDAY AS HUMIDITY INCREASES WHILE SURFACE TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO COOL. WINDS TAPER OFF BY SUNDAY AS WELL WITH FLOW OUT  OF THE NORTH. RECOVERIES WILL IMPROVE GREATLY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. MORE TYPICAL END-OF-SUMMER CONDITIONS RETURN BY MID WEEK WITH FLOW BECOMING MORE WESTERLY.
