UPDATE (9:06 AM PDT)...WINDS WILL BE A BIT STRONGER TODAY THEN PREVIOUSLY FORECAST. THIS IS DUE TO A 18 DEGREE THERMAL GRADIENT BETWEEN THE SIERRA AND CARSON/HUMBOLDT SINKS. IN ADDITION, PEAK WINDS IN THE MIXED LAYER THIS AFTERNOON DO NOT FALL BELOW 30 MPH. THUS WE HAVE HIGHER CONFIDENCE IN GUSTS OF 30-35 MPH TODAY AFFECTING A LARGE PORTION OF NORTHWEST NEVADA, INCLUDING THE SIERRA FRONT. WITH MINIMUM HUMIDITY OF 12-15%, WE ARE GOING TO ISSUE A RED FLAG WARNING FOR FIRE ZONES 450, 453 AND 458 THROUGH 9 PM TODAY. THERE IS ALSO THE CONCERN OF HOLD OVER FIRES FROM LARGE NUMBER OF LIGHTNING STRIKES OVER THE LAST FEW DAYS.

SYNOPSIS (2:48 AM PDT)...LOW PRESSURE MOVING ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WILL BRING DRY AND BREEZY CONDITIONS TODAY, ESPECIALLY NORTH OF HIGHWAY 50. LIGHTER WINDS WITH A WARMING TREND WILL OCCUR THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER THE DESERT SOUTHWEST. INCREASING MOISTURE WILL BRING A POSSIBILITY OF THUNDERSTORMS SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: LOW PRESSURE IS ON TRACK TO MOVE THROUGH THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WITH TROUGH AXIS PASSING ACROSS CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA THIS AFTERNOON. THIS TROUGH WILL BRING A DRIER AND MORE STABLE AIR MASS TO THE REGION TODAY, WHICH WILL BE THE FIRST DAY IN OVER A WEEK WITH NO THUNDERSTORMS AFFECTING ANY PART OF EASTERN CA OR WESTERN NV. THE MAIN EFFECT WILL BE GUSTY WINDS UP TO 35 MPH ACROSS NORTHEAST CA-NORTHWEST NV AND EXTENDING SOUTH TO THE RENO-CARSON CITY AREA. THE TIMING OF THE TROUGH PASSAGE SHOULD BRING AT LEAST A FEW HOURS OF WINDS REACHING LAKE WIND ADVISORY CRITERIA FOR PARTS OF WEST CENTRAL NV. THIS ADVISORY IS PRIMARILY FOR PYRAMID LAKE WHERE THE POTENTIAL FOR GUSTY WINDS IS HIGHER, AND ALSO SINCE VERY LOW WATER LEVELS AT OTHER RESERVOIRS WILL LEAD TO LOWER WAVE HEIGHTS. BOAT LAUNCH ACCESS TO BOTH LAHONTAN AND RYE PATCH RESERVOIRS IS ALREADY LIMITED. AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST U.S. THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, WINDS WILL BE MUCH LIGHTER ACROSS THE REGION. MAX TEMPS WILL REMAIN SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL THROUGH THURSDAY, WITH HIGHS MAINLY FROM THE UPPER 80S TO LOWER 90S FOR LOWER ELEVATIONS, THEN RISE A FEW DEGREES INTO THE 90S BY FRIDAY.

LONG TERM WEATHER....SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...OVERALL PATTERN FOR THE EXTENDED FORECAST PERIOD REMAINS LARGELY UNCHANGED. RIDGE BEGINS TO BUILD BACK INTO THE REGION WITH TEMPS CLIMBING ABOVE AVERAGE BY SATURDAY. MOISTURE BEGINS TO MOVE BACK INTO THE REGION BY SUNDAY WITH SLIGHT CHANCE POPS FOR THE SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE CWA STRETCHING UP INTO THE TAHOE BASIN AND FAR WESTERN NEVADA. BY MONDAY AND TUESDAY IT IS LIKELY THAT MOISTURE WILL INCREASE A BIT MORE AND...GIVEN ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPS...EVEN THE PRESENCE OF SOME WARMING ALOFT MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO LIMIT CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT. WILL KEEP THE SLIGHT CHANCE POPS BUT SPREAD THEM THROUGH MOST OF THE CWA BY MONDAY AND TUESDAY. WINDS WILL BE RELATIVELY LIGHT THROUGH THE COLUMN AND THIS SHOULD LEAD TO ANOTHER ROUND OF SLOW MOVING STORMS WITH LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN BY EARLY NEXT WEEK. VERY FEW CHANGES MADE TO INHERITED FORECAST THIS CYCLE EXCEPT TO EXPAND POPS A LITTLE FARTHER WEST TUESDAY.
