UPDATE (8:21 AM PDT)...WESTERLY FLOW NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80 IS PUSHING SMOKE AND HAZE FROM WILDFIRES OVER NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA INTO THE SURPRISE VALLEY AND THE NORTHERN PORTIONS OF WASHOE AND LASSEN COUNTIES. SMOKE AND HAZE MAY PUSH FARTHER SOUTH IN THE NEXT DAY OR TWO AS THE UPPER FLOW SHIFTS TO WEST-NORTHWEST. HAVE REMOVED THE SHOWERS FOR AREA SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 50, AS SKIES HAVE CLEARED THIS MORNING. HOWEVER A FEW THUNDERSTORMS MAY  DEVELOP ALONG THE SIERRA CREST IN MONO AND ALPINE COUNTIES LATER THIS AFTERNOON. LOOKING AHEAD TO FRIDAY, TROUGH MOVING INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WILL INCREASE WINDS AND BRING DRY AIR INTO THE SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA. THERE IS GROWING CONFIDENCE IN RED FLAG CONDITIONS FOR FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING, ESPECIALLY ALONG HIGHWAY 395 FROM SUSANVILLE THROUGH RENO-CARSON AND INTO MONO COUNTY.

SYNOPSIS (2:04 AM PDT)...LOW PRESSURE MOVING SOUTH ALONG THE CALIFORNIA COAST WILL BRING THE THREAT OF ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES ARE LIKELY FOR FRIDAY AND THIS WEEKEND AS LOW PRESSURE FROM THE GULF OF ALASKA MOVES INTO  THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. BREEZY CONDITIONS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE FRIDAY AND SATURDAY.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: LIMITED CHANGES WERE MADE TO THE SHORT TERM FORECAST AS SHORT TERM MODELS REMAIN FAIRLY CONSISTENT WITH DROPPING UPPER LOW DOWN THE CALIFORNIA COAST BEFORE MOVING IT INLAND LATE THURSDAY. SHOWERS CONTINUE OVER THE FAR SOUTHERN COUNTY WARNING AREA EARLY THIS MORNING AS UPPER LEVEL AREA OF DEFORMATION HAS ESTABLISHED ITSELF. THIS AREA SHOULD WEAKEN SOME THROUGH THE DAY AS IT BECOMES FURTHER ELONGATED AND PRIMARY UPPER TROUGH BEGINS TO MOVE EAST WHILE UPPER LOW BECOMES CLOSED AND NEARLY CUT OFF ALONG THE COAST. A SECONDARY SHORT WAVE DROPPING INTO THE BACK SIDE OF THE UPPER TROUGH WILL PASS ACROSS THE NORTHERN THIRD OF THE FORECAST TOMORROW EVENING. FORCING DOES NOT APPEAR OVERLY AGGRESSIVE WITH THIS FEATURE...BUT IT IS NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION TO PICK UP A FEW THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE FAR NORTHERN CWA. ANY THAT FORM WOULD LIKELY BE LOW TOPPED THOUGH...DUE TO SOME WEAK WARMING ALOFT. NORTHWEST FLOW DEVELOPS THURSDAY WITH TYPICAL AFTERNOON BREEZES. BY FRIDAY A BROADER...MORE WELL DEVELOPED AREA OF LOW PRESSURE STARTS TO DROP SOUTH OUT OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST TOWARD THE REGION. LATEST MODEL RUNS TAKE THIS LOW A BIT FARTHER EAST THAN PREVIOUS RUNS AS IT HEADS TOWARD THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST. THIS SOLUTION WOULD LIKELY RESULT IN TEMPS FOR FRIDAY NOT QUITE AS COOL AS PREVIOUSLY FORECAST. THE BIGGER ISSUE WITH THIS LOW COULD BE GUSTY WEST WINDS FRIDAY. THIS COULD CAUSE SOME FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS IN THE WESTERN NEVADA AND THE VALLEYS OF NORTHEAST CA WHERE FUELS ARE DRYING AGAIN AND RH VALUES WOULD BE QUITE LOW.

LONG TERM WEATHER....SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...MINOR CHANGES MADE TO THE LONG TERM FORECAST AS DIFFERENCES BY MIDWEEK NEXT WEEK LEAD TOLOWER FORECAST CONFIDENCE. BOTH THE GFS AND THE ECMWF KEEP A LONGWAVE TROUGH ACROSS THE ROCKIES THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK, WITH THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BEING THE DEPTH/POSITION OF THE TROUGH AND THE SPEED WITH WHICH THE RIDGE RETURNS. THE GFS HOLDS THE BACK EDGE OF THE TROUGH FARTHER WEST ACROSS THE SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA, ALLOWING REINFORCING SHORTWAVES TO DROP THROUGH IT. THE NORTHERLY FLOW WILL MAINTAIN RELATIVELY COOLER TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE REGION. THE ECMWF IS LESS AGGRESSIVE WITH THE DEPTH AND WESTWARD EXTENT OF THE TROUGH, AND ALLOWS IT TO EXIT EASTWARD QUICKLY AS RIDGING BUILDS BACK ACROSS THE REGION BY TUESDAY AFTERNOON. THE GFS CATCHES UP TO THE ECMWF BY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON, BUT BY THIS POINT THE ECMWF'S RIDGE IS FAR MORE AMPLIFIED THAN THE GFS SOLUTION. OUTSIDE OF PRONOUNCED TIMING AND PATTERN DIFFERENCES IN THE MODELS BY NEXT WEEK, BOTH MODEL SOLUTIONS AGREE THAT IT WILL BE A DRY FORECAST WITH LITTLE TO NO CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION THROUGH THAT TIME PERIOD.  TEMPERATURES WILL LIKELY REMAIN NEAR NORMAL THROUGH NEXT WEEK, OUTSIDE OF SOME MINOR COOLING EARLY ON IN THE WEEK BEFORE THE TROUGH EDGES EASTWARD. TYPICAL WEST TO NORTHWEST BREEZES WILL DEVELOP EACH AFTERNOON AS WELL.
