SYNOPSIS (2:24 PM PDT)...ABUNDANT MOISTURE WILL CONTINUE PUSHING NORTH THROUGH THE WEEK. AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE LIFTS NORTHEAST OVER THE REGION WEDNESDAY AND INTERACTS WITH DEEP MOISTURE TO PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN, AND EVEN THE POTENTIAL FOR FLASH FLOODING FROM MONO COUNTY NORTH AND EAST INTO MINERAL, CHURCHILL AND PERSHING COUNTIES. FASTER STORM MOTIONS BY THURSDAY COULD RESULT IN GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS  ALONG WITH A FEW DRY LIGHTNING STRIKES, MAINLY OVER THE NORTHERN PART OF THE FORECAST AREA, WHILE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS AREA POSSIBLE SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 80.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: PARTIAL CLEARING OVER THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE FORECAST AREA ALLOWED HEATING EARLY IN THE AFTERNOON AND THUNDERSTORMS HAVE DEVELOPED ALONG THE SIERRA CREST SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 50. THESE STORMS SHOULD BEGIN TO DRIFT OFF THE TO THE EAST AND REDEVELOP WITH LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN POSSIBLE IN ISOLATED AREAS. ADDITIONAL STORMS HAVE FORMED OVER THE FAR NORTHWEST PORTION OF THE CWA. THESE STORMS SHOULD DRIFT NORTHEAST THROUGH THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. WITH CLOUDS INHIBITING CONVECTION THUS FAR OVER THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE CWA...IT IS POSSIBLE THAT MANY AREAS IN THE BASIN AND RANGE WILL SEE FEW...IF ANY STORMS THIS EVENING. THE MODELS CONTINUE TO STRUGGLE WITH SUBTLE FEATURES EMBEDDED IN THE OVERALL FLOW...BUT THE GFS HAS BEEN MORE CONSISTENT WITH A VORTICITY LOBE THAT IS A REMNANT OF A TROPICAL SYSTEM LIFTING NORTH TOWARD SOUTHERN CA THIS AFTERNOON. THIS LOBE SHOULD LIFT NORTHEAST TOMORROW OVER THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE FORECAST AND PROVIDE THE MAIN FORCING FOR ORGANIZED STORMS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN HALF OD THE REGION. FORECAST SOUNDINGS FROM MONO COUNTY NORTHEAST THROUGH MINERAL AND CHURCHILL COUNTIES SHOW PRECIPITABLE WATERS APPROACHING 1 INCH FOR WEDNESDAY WITH RELATIVELY LIGHT STORM MOTIONS. WHILE INSTABILITY IS NOT OVERWHELMING...THE LACK OF STORM MOTION AND THE PRESENCE OF MID LEVEL FORCING SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS EAST OF A LINE FROM BRIDGEPORT TO YERINGTON TO FALLON TO NEAR WINNEMUCCA. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR MONO...MINERAL...SOUTHERN LYON AND THE EASTERN 2/3RDS OF CHURCHILL AND PERSHING COUNTIES WILL BE IN EFFECT FOR WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. OUTSIDE OF THE WATCH AREA STORM MOTIONS WILL BE A LITTLE FASTER...BUT LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN IS POSSIBLE...JUST NOT EXPECTED TO BE AS PROBABLE. AREAS OF STEEPER TERRAIN AND RECENT BURN SCARS IN ALPINE...DOUGLAS...STOREY AND NORTHERN LYON COUNTIES WILL BE ESPECIALLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO RUN OFF FROM HEAVY RAINS WEDNESDAY. THE PRESENCE  OF THE MID LEVEL FORCING WILL MEAN A CONTINUED THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS IN THE SOUTHERN AND EASTERN AREAS WEDNESDAY NIGHT. ADDITIONAL FORCING FROM ANOTHER VORTICITY LOBE SHOULD PRODUCE THUNDERSTORMS AGAIN THURSDAY. THESE ARE LIKELY TO BE MOVING A LITTLE FASTER OVERALL...BUT AGAIN THE SLOWEST MOTIONS WILL BE ACROSS THE SOUTHERN AND EASTERN 1/3RD OF THE FORECAST AREA. OVER NORTHERN PORTIONS THE STORMS ARE LIKELY TO BE MOVING FASTER WITH DRIER SUB CLOUD LAYERS THAT COULD PRODUCE VERY GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS. DRY LIGHTNING STRIKES ARE ALSO A STRONG POSSIBILITY FOR THE NORTHERN AND WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE FORECAST AREA THURSDAY.

LONG TERM WEATHER....FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY REMAIN IN THE FORECAST INTO NEXT WEEK. HIGH PRESSURE PREVAILS OVER THE  SOUTHWEST US WITH A WEAK TROUGH DEVELOPING NEAR THE CA COAST THIS WEEKEND. BY EARLY NEXT WEEK, THIS TROUGH MAY DISSIPATE OR MOVE FARTHER OFFSHORE, RESULTING IN MORE UNCERTAINTY IN THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL, MAINLY IN THE 90S FOR THE LOWER ELEVATIONS AND 80S IN THE SIERRA. FOR FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT APPEARS TO BE SUFFICIENT TO KEEP CONVECTION OUT OF THE NORTHERN SIERRA AND TAHOE BASIN, WITH BETTER THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL IN WESTERN NEVADA EAST OF RENO AND CARSON CITY. ON TODAY'S GUIDANCE, THE  TROUGH IS LOCATED NEAR OR JUST INLAND OVER NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA FOR BOTH DAYS. FOR AREAS SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 50, THERE MAY BE OTHER DISTURBANCES ROTATING AROUND THE RIDGE THAT WILL AFFECT CONVECTIVE POTENTIAL, BUT THEY APPEAR TO BE TRACKING TOO FAR SOUTH AND EAST TO HAVE MUCH EFFECT ON THESE AREAS. ON SUNDAY, MODEL GUIDANCE IS HAVING DIFFICULTY KEEPING THE TROUGH NEAR CALIFORNIA INTACT, WITH MUCH OF THE ENERGY BEING SHEARED OUT TO THE NORTH AND EAST. IF THIS OCCURS, THEN THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL WOULD LIKELY DECREASE. PREVIOUS DAYS OF GUIDANCE WERE FAVORING THIS TROUGH  HOLDING TOGETHER AND DRIFTING SLOWLY SOUTH ALONG THE CA COAST, BRINGING IN MORE SOUTHERLY FLOW ALOFT AND RESTORING THUNDERSTORM CHANCES TO  THE NORTHERN SIERRA AND TAHOE BASIN. AT THIS TIME WE WILL KEEP A MENTION OF THUNDER IN ALL AREAS, ALTHOUGH WE DID PUSH THE BETTER CHANCES TO THE EAST OF RENO-CARSON CITY. FOR MONDAY AND TUESDAY, EVEN MORE UNCERTAINTY EXISTS FOR THE WEATHER PATTERN OVER CA-NV. THE LATEST GUIDANCE IS ERODING THE GREAT BASIN PORTION OF THE RIDGE, WHILE THE REMNANT TROUGH NEAR THE CALIFORNIA COAST DRIFTS FARTHER OFFSHORE WITH MINIMAL EFFECTS  FOR THE SIERRA OR WESTERN NV. SINCE THERE IS NO DISTINCT MECHANISM CLEARING OUT THE MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY, WE WILL KEEP A MENTION OF THUNDER IN  OUR REGION, BUT CONFIDENCE IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO GO ABOVE SLIGHT CHANCE IN ANY LOCATION. ISOLATED SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS FROM RESIDUAL MOISTURE OR CONVECTIVE OUTFLOW INTERACTIONS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE FOR THE OVERNIGHT HOURS, MAINLY FOR NORTHEAST CA-NORTHWEST NV.
