SYNOPSIS (3:00 AM PDT)...AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES WILL WARM THROUGH FRIDAY. MOISTURE AHEAD OF A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IN THE PACIFIC WILL PRODUCE RAIN OVER NORTHEAST CALIFORNIA AND FAR NORTHWEST NEVADA TODAY. THE LOW WILL MOVE INLAND ON SATURDAY BRINGING A PERIOD OF STRONG GUSTY WINDS AND THE POTENTIAL FOR RAIN AND MOUNTAIN SNOW.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: MAIN UPDATES IN THE SHORT TERM WERE TO INCREASE WINDS SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING, AND INCREASE PRECIPITATION CHANCES SATURDAY NIGHT, ESPECIALLY FROM THE TAHOE BASIN NORTH TO LASSEN COUNTY. FOR TODAY AND TONIGHT, A PACIFIC TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO TRANSPORT MOISTURE ACROSS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND NORTHWEST NV. HRRR MODEL SHOWS PRECIPITATION SPREADING AS FAR SOUTH AS PLUMAS COUNTY TODAY. THIS SEEMS REASONABLE BASED ON CURRENT  RADAR/SATELLITE TRENDS. AMOUNTS IN THE SURPRISE VALLEY HAVE BEEN CLOSE TO 0.10 INCHES ALREADY THIS MORNING. THIS MOISTURE PLUME WILL SHIFT NORTHWARD INTO OREGON BY FRIDAY MORNING. WEAK ISENTROPIC LIFT SHOULD PROVIDE TOTAL PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS GENERALLY IN THE 0.10 TO 0.30 INCHES RANGE BY FRIDAY MORNING, WITH HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE NEAR THE OREGON BORDER. A STRONGER PACIFIC TROUGH WILL REACH THE WEST COAST FRIDAY AND WILL BRING INCREASING SOUTH-SOUTHWEST WINDS TO THE SIERRA AND WESTERN NV. SIERRA  RIDGE GUSTS SHOULD INCREASE TO 30-50 MPH FRIDAY AND INTO THE 20-30 MPH RANGE IN WESTERN NV VALLEYS. RIDGE GUSTS SHOULD BECOME EVEN STRONGER FRIDAY NIGHT, AROUND 50-60 MPH BY FRIDAY EVENING, AND 60-80 MPH FRIDAY AFTER MIDNIGHT. MODEL AND MODEL ENSEMBLES ARE COMING INTO FAIRLY GOOD AGREEMENT THAT A COLD FRONT AND WINTER-LIKE SYSTEM WILL CROSS THE SIERRA AND SIERRA FRONT RANGE SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO  INCREASE TO ADVISORY LEVEL SATURDAY, WITH GUSTS IN VALLEYS TO 40-50 MPH AND RIDGE TOP GUSTS 80-100 MPH OR HIGHER. THIS COLD FRONT IS ALSO LIKELY TO BRING RAIN AND SNOW SATURDAY FROM THE TAHOE BASIN NORTH. SNOW LEVELS SATURDAY EVENING COULD LOWER TO AROUND 7000 FEET NORTH OF I-80, AND TO  7000-8000 FEET SOUTH OF I-80. PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS ARE UNCERTAIN AT THIS TIME, BUT THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR AT LEAST A FEW INCHES OF SNOW TO IMPACT MOUNTAIN PASSES ABOVE 7000 FEET STARTING SATURDAY EVENING.

LONG TERM WEATHER....SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...TROUGH WILL BE EXITING SUNDAY WITH A MUCH COOLER NORTHERLY FLOW. TEMPERATURES WILL BE MOSTLY IN THE 50S AREA WIDE. WE DID BUMP POPS UP SLIGHTLY FOR SUNDAY MORNING AS PRECIPITATION WILL BE ONGOING BUT WINDING DOWN. QPF WILL BE LIGHT AND GENERALLY UNDER 1/10 INCH. SHOWERS WILL DECREASE DURING THE AFTERNOON AND BE CONFINED MAINLY TO FAR NORTHERN AREAS, CLOSE TO THE OREGON BORDER. A PROGRESSIVE FLOW WILL PREVAIL MONDAY-WEDNESDAY WHICH WILL BRING PERIODS OF CLOUDS AND A SLOW WARM-UP. WE DID KEEP A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS GOING NORTHERN AREAS AS MODELS ARE INDICATING A WEAK SHORTWAVE MOVING THROUGH THE FLOW TUE-WED. THIS IS A RATHER WEAK FEATURE AND  WILL RESULT IN LIGHT QUANTITATIVE PRECIPITATION FORECAST. OTHERWISE ATTENTION WILL EVENTUALLY TURN TO THE END OF NEXT WEEK WHEN A MORE SIGNIFICANT TROUGH IS POSSIBLE. THE GFS HAS BEEN CHANGING ERRATICALLY THE PAST FEW NIGHTS AND WE HAVE DISREGARDED THE UPPER RIDGE DEPICTED IN ITS DETERMINISTIC RUN. ITS PREVIOUS 18Z RUN AND  SEVERAL OF ITS CURRENT ENSEMBLE MEMBERS ARE MORE ALIGNED WITH THE EC/GEM, THE ECMWF BEING PERSISTENT NOW FOR SEVERAL RUNS. IN ADDITION THE ECMWF HAS BETTER SUPPORT FROM ITS ENSEMBLE MEAN. NONETHELESS, CONFIDENCE IS STILL LOW. IT WILL BE WORTH WATCHING.
