SYNOPSIS (3:03 AM PDT)...A WEAK TROUGH WILL REMAIN OVER THE AREA THROUGH FRIDAY. MOST OF THE PRECIPITATION WILL STAY SOUTH OF THE REGION ALTHOUGH ISOLATED SHOWERS COULD OCCUR ACROSS MONO AND MINERAL COUNTIES. HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRY AND MILD CONDITIONS THIS WEEKEND WITH THE STORM TRACK REMAINING TO OUR NORTH THROUGH NEXT WEEK.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: LARGE SCALE TROUGH WILL RESIDE OVER THE AREA TODAY WITH LITTLE IN THE WAY OF DYNAMICS. WEAK INSTABILITY AND ABUNDANT MOISTURE WILL BE IN PLACE FOR PERIODS OF SCATTERED-BROKEN CLOUDS MOST AREAS WITH AN ISOLATED SHOWER POSSIBLE OVER MONO-MINERAL COUNTIES. SOUTHERN END OF TROUGH WILL CLOSE OFF AND MOVE INTO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-ARIZONA-NORTHWEST MEXICO FRI-SAT WITH A DRIER NORTHEAST FLOW TO BRING A SLOW DRYING TREND FROM NORTH TO SOUTH ACROSS THE SIERRA AND WESTERN NV. A PERIOD OF GUSTY NORTHEAST WINDS WILL DEVELOP OVER THE RIDGES FRIDAY AFTERNOON INTO SATURDAY MORNING AS THE GRADIENT INCREASES ON BACK SIDE OF UPPER LOW WITH PERIODS OF NORTHEAST WINDS DOWN IN LOWER VALLEYS AS WELL, ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE BASIN AND RANGE. WE KEPT A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS FOR MONO-MINERAL COUNTIES THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT, BUT QUANTITATIVE PRECIPITATION FORECAST IS GOING  TO BE VERY LIGHT WITH BETTER INSTABILITY AND SHOWER COVERAGE STAYING FARTHER SOUTH. TEMPERATURES MAY COOL A FEW DEGREES, HOWEVER READINGS THE  NEXT FEW DAYS ARE STILL GOING TO BE ABOVE NORMAL. CLOUD COVER WILL LIMIT FOG FORMATION THIS MORNING, ALTHOUGH PATCHY FOG IS POSSIBLE WHERE CLOUD BREAKS OCCUR. CONDITIONS MAY BE MORE FAVORABLE TONIGHT NEAR AND NORTH OF HIGHWAY 50 AS CLOUDS THIN.

LONG TERM WEATHER....SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...LATEST MEDIUM RANGE GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO SHOW SOME FLATTENING OF THE RIDGE SUNDAY AND MONDAY WITH WEAK SHORTWAVE ENERGY MOVING ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, BUT KEEPS THE BEST MOISTURE FEED AND STORM TRACK NORTH OF THE OREGON  BORDER. THERE MAY BE A FEW SHOWERS BRUSHING ACROSS AREAS NORTH OF SUSANVILLE AND GERLACH SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY EVENING, BUT THE POTENTIAL FOR ANY PRECIPITATION FARTHER SOUTH TO THE INTERSTATE 80 CORRIDOR OR THE TAHOE BASIN HAS DROPPED SUBSTANTIALLY, SO WE REMOVED THE MENTION OF SHOWERS FROM THESE AREAS. FROM TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY, RIDGE REBUILDS OVER CALIFORNIA THEN MOVES EAST ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN  WITH ALL AREAS REMAINING DRY. THE AMPLITUDE OF THE RIDGE AXIS IS NOT VERY SHARP, SO THIS WILL LIKELY KEEP AREAS OF CIRRUS SPREADING ACROSS CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA, BUT ALSO LIMIT THE INVERSION STRENGTH. ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. HIGHS ON SUNDAY ARE LIKELY TO REACH THE UPPER 50S TO NEAR 60 DEGREES FOR LOWER ELEVATIONS AND SIERRA VALLEYS, WITH LIMITED MIXING TO THE LOWER VALLEYS. FOR  MONDAY, SOME COOLING WILL OCCUR NEAR THE SIERRA, BUT SHORTWAVE PASSAGE MAY BE SUFFICIENT TO IMPROVE MIXING AND PUSH TEMPS HIGHER FOR WESTERN  NV VALLEYS. GFS MOS GUIDANCE PUSHED HIGHS ABOVE 65 DEGREES FOR RENO ON MONDAY, BUT WE DIDN'T GO THAT HIGH SINCE PRESENCE OF CLOUD COVER MAY  PREVENT FULL MIXING DOWN FROM RIDGE LEVEL (AROUND 700 MB) DOWN TO THE SURFACE. FOR TUESDAY-WEDNESDAY WE KEPT TEMPS ABOVE 60 DEGREES FOR MOST LOWER ELEVATIONS, BASED ON THE DESCRIPTION OF THE RIDGE IN THE PREVIOUS PARAGRAPH.
