SYNOPSIS (4:25 AM PDT)…BREEZY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE WORK WEEK WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS EXPECTED ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THIS WILL RESULT IN HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS, AREAS OF BLOWING DUST, AND PERIODS OF NEAR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. A COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH NORTHEAST CALIFORNIA AND NORTHWEST NEVADA FRIDAY, BRINGING WELL BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES TO START THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: THE GREATEST CONCERN OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS REMAINS AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT MOVING ACROSS NORTHEAST CALIFORNIA AND NORTHWEST NEVADA. THIS SYSTEM WILL BRING WINDY CONDITIONS TO THE AREA TODAY INTO FRIDAY, RESULTING IN HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS, TURBULENCE FOR AVIATION, AREAS OF BLOWING DUST DOWNWIND OF DESERTS AND SINKS, AND PERIODS OF NEAR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. WHILE WINDS WILL BE BREEZY TODAY, THE THERMAL GRADIENT AND JET MAX WILL PEAK ON FRIDAY, MAKING THAT AFTERNOON AND EVENING THE BEST BET FOR THE STRONGEST WINDS WITH GUSTS IN THE 35 TO 45 MPH RANGE. FOR THOSE AT THE BURNING MAN FESTIVAL IN BLACK ROCK CITY – VISIBILITY MAY DROP BELOW A MILE IN BLOWING DUST ON THE PLAYA FRIDAY AND LOOSE OBJECTS COULD BECOME AIRBORNE, BECOMING A DANGER FOR FESTIVAL GOERS. AS THE CORE OF THE LOW DIGS SOUTH, THERE WILL BE CHANCES FOR SHOWERS NEAR THE OREGON BORDER FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY. THERE IS MARGINAL FORCING FRIDAY, WHICH MAY PRODUCE SOME EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS AS WELL. HAVE PULLED PRECIPITATION CHANCES NORTHWARD ON SATURDAY AS A SIGNIFICANT DRY LAYER MOVES INTO THE MIDLEVELS, STABILIZING THE ATMOSPHERE. PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS WILL GENERALLY BE LIGHT, UNDER A TENTH OF AN INCH, WITH THE BEST CHANCES NORTH OF A PORTOLA-PYRAMID LAKE-LOVELOCK LINE, WHICH DOES INCLUDE BLACK ROCK CITY. THE OTHER MAJOR IMPACT FROM THIS LOW WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY COLDER TEMPERATURES. HIGHS ARE ONLY EXPECTED TO BE IN THE MID 60S TO MID 70S IN WESTERN NEVADA VALLEYS TO START THE WEEKEND WITH UPPER 50S TO LOW 60S IN SIERRA VALLEYS. OVERNIGHT LOWS WILL BE QUITE COOL AS WELL, WITH THE COLDEST MORNING ON SUNDAY AS SKIES CLEAR AND WINDS BECOME LIGHT. THOSE IN COLDER WESTERN NEVADA VALLEYS SHOULD PREPARE FOR TEMPERATURES DIPPING TO NEAR FREEZING, WHILE SIERRA VALLEYS WILL LIKELY BE IN THE MID 20S. COVER SENSITIVE VEGETATION AND BE SURE TO BE PREPARED FOR MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES IF YOU HAVE OUTDOOR PLANS FRIDAY-SUNDAY MORNING.

LONG TERM WEATHER….AS UPPER LOW LIFTS NORTHEAST AWAY FROM AREA, TEMPERATURES WILL BEGIN TO REBOUND FOR THE REST OF THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND. THE AIRMASS IS STILL QUITE DRY AND THEREFORE NIGHTTIME LOWS WILL SEE A SLOWER RECOVERY AND REMAIN QUITE COOL. MOST MEDIUM RANGE MODELS INDICATE A SECONDARY SHORTWAVE DROPPING SOUTHEASTWARD MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY ALTHOUGH THERE IS VARIABILITY IN STRENGTH AMONG THOSE SOLUTIONS. BOTH SCENARIOS WOULD BE DRY WITH THE ONLY QUESTION BEING WHETHER THERE WOULD BE ANY COOLING OR IF THE WARMUP WOULD BE SLOWED FOR TUESDAY. WE PULLED BACK TEMPS SLIGHTLY, BUT OVERALL, IT SHOULD STILL BE A WARM END TO THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND GOING INTO THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. GIVEN THIS SECOND WAVE, THE ATMOSPHERE WILL BE TOO DRY FOR ANY CONVECTION AND WE PULLED EVEN THE GHOST POPS IN THE SIERRA FOR MID NEXT WEEK.
