SYNOPSIS (2:58 AM PDT)...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING WELL ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND DRY CONDITIONS THROUGH FRIDAY. LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE INTO THE WEST COAST FRIDAY NIGHT WITH PERIODS OF GUSTY WINDS, RAIN AND SIERRA SNOW THIS WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE REMAINS OVER THE REGION FOR THANKSGIVING AND INTO FRIDAY. SOME HIGH CLOUDS MOVING IN OVERNIGHT WILL KEEP TEMPERATURES A BIT WARMER THAN WHAT WE SAW LAST NIGHT, ALONG WITH WEAKER VALLEY INVERSIONS. WELL ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES CONTINUE INTO THANKSGIVING WITH HIGHS PEAKING OUT IN THE MID TO UPPER 60S. AT THE RENO-TAHOE AIRPORT WE SHOULD BE A COUPLE DEGREES LOW OF THE RECORD OF 70 DEGREES SET BACK IN 1946. IF THE CLOUDS CLEAR OUT EARLIER IN THE DAY, WE COULD APPROACH OR EVEN BREAK THE RECORD, BUT FOR NOW THAT LOOKS UNLIKELY. AS WE GO INTO FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY, INCREASED MOISTURE WILL START TO MOVE INTO NORTHERN CA COMBINING WITH LOW PRESSURE DROPPING INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. THIS WILL BRING PERIODS OF RAIN AND HIGH ELEVATION SNOW THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT. SNOW LEVELS WILL BEGIN AROUND 7000 FEET FRIDAY NIGHT, THEN DROP TO AROUND 6500 FEET SATURDAY NIGHT. FORECAST CONFIDENCE IS MEDIUM TO HIGH ON THE WEEKEND SYSTEM, SO WE'VE CONTINUED TO RAISE THE CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION FOR THE TAHOE BASIN NORTHWARD INTO THE "LIKELY" CATEGORY. THE MOST UNCERTAINTY IN THE SHORT TERM FORECAST LIES IN THE AMOUNT OF PRECIPITATION. FOR NOW, WE EXPECT TO SEE TOTAL PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT OF 0.20-0.50" IN THE  SIERRA WITH LIGHT RAIN LESS THAN 0.10" IN WESTERN NEVADA. GUSTY WINDS OF UP TO 40 MPH ARE ALSO POSSIBLE ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY WITH THIS SYSTEM, ESPECIALLY ALONG THE HIGHWAY 395 CORRIDOR. THE MAIN TRAVEL IMPACTS WILL BE FOR THE SIERRA PASSES ABOVE 7000 FEET WITH POTENTIAL OF SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW. ANYONE TRAVELING OVER THE SIERRA SATURDAY OR SATURDAY NIGHT SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR SLICK WINTER ROAD CONDITIONS.

LONG TERM WEATHER....SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...WHILE ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN IS STILL PROBABLE FROM SUNDAY THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK, THE TIMING OF THE HEAVIER PRECIPITATION AND POTENTIAL RAIN OR SNOW AMOUNTS HAVE BECOME FAR MORE UNCERTAIN. MAJOR CHANGES IN SOME OF THE MODEL  GUIDANCE, AND HIGH LEVEL OF SPREAD AMONG ENSEMBLE DATA HAS FURTHER LOWERED CONFIDENCE AS TO WHICH DAYS ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE WET NEXT WEEK. THERE IS A LITTLE BETTER AGREEMENT WITH SUNDAY TRENDING WETTER, AS SHORTWAVE BREAKING OFF FROM THE MAIN LOW MOVES ACROSS NORTHERN AND CENTRAL CA, WITH PACIFIC MOISTURE ALREADY IN PLACE. THE BEST CHANCE FOR RAIN AND HIGH ELEVATION SNOW IS PROJECTED FROM TAHOE NORTHWARD TO NORTHEAST CA, WITH LIGHTER RAIN POSSIBLE IN WESTERN NV NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80. SNOW LEVELS ARE GENERALLY EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM 6500 TO 7500 FEET, HOWEVER THE GFS AND ECMWF BOTH SHOW A POCKET OF COOLER  700 MB TEMPS AROUND -6 C SUNDAY MORNING. THIS COULD RESULT IN A SHORT PERIOD OF SNOW DOWN TO LAKE LEVEL IN THE TAHOE BASIN BEFORE WARMER AIR MOVES IN DURING THE AFTERNOON. THE LARGEST UNCERTAINTY WITH PRECIP POTENTIAL IS FOR MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT. WHILE OPERATIONAL MODELS HAVE TRENDED TOWARD STALLING THE MAIN LOW OFF THE CA COAST, SEVERAL ENSEMBLE MEMBERS  STILL BRING SIGNIFICANT MOISTURE INLAND DURING THIS TIME FRAME. IF THE 12Z GFS AND ECMWF VERIFY, LITTLE OR NO RAIN OR SNOW WOULD OCCUR OVER THE REGION, WHICH IS IN SHARP CONTRAST WITH THE PREVIOUS FORECAST. AT THIS TIME THE PRECIPITATION CHANCES WERE TRENDED DOWNWARD, ESPECIALLY SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 50, BUT WE DID NOT GO DRASTICALLY LOWER YET BECAUSE OF THE LARGE UNCERTAINTY AMONG THE MODEL GUIDANCE. DEPENDING ON WHEN THE MAIN LOW FINALLY MOVES INLAND AND WHAT TRACK IT TAKES, RAIN AND SNOW COULD BE A BETTER POSSIBILITY FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. HOWEVER, THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS IS NOT A GUARANTEE, AS SOME OF THE MODEL SOLUTIONS WEAKEN THIS LOW AND MOVE IT ACROSS SOUTHERN CA AND SOUTHERN NV, KEEPING THE BEST PRECIPITATION SOUTH OF OUR REGION.
