SYNOPSIS (2:35 PM PDT)...CHANCES FOR RAIN AND SNOW WILL GRADUALLY DIMINISH FROM SOUTH TO NORTH THROUGH THIS EVENING. DRY CONDITIONS AND MILD TEMPERATURES ARE ANTICIPATED TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE REGION. A STRONG COLD FRONT IS POSSIBLE LATE WEDNESDAY INTO CHRISTMAS DAY WITH GUSTY WINDS, RAIN, AND SNOW.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: ONLY SOME SLIGHT ADJUSTMENTS FOR TODAY'S FORECAST AS SIERRA AND NORTHWESTERN NEVADA PRECIPITATION CHANCES SLOWLY DIMINISH THROUGH THE DAY. DID INCREASE CHANCES TO AT LEAST 25% FOR THE SIERRA FROM I-80 NORTHWARD AS ISENTROPIC LIFT AND MOIST ON-SHORE FLOW CONTINUE TO SUPPORT SOME VERY LIGHT SNOW AND RAIN MAINLY ALONG HIGHER TERRAIN. THIS WILL CHANGE AS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT DEFORMS DUE TO RIDGING BECOMING MORE PRONOUNCED ALONG THE PACIFIC COAST THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING TURNING WINDS MORE NORTHERLY. THIS WILL CUT OFF THE MOIST FLOW ALLOWING FOR DRIER CONDITIONS TONIGHT THROUGH MID WEEK AS RIDGING STRENGTHENS. OTHERWISE, THE PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL REMAIN TIGHT INTO THE EARLY AFTERNOON TODAY ACROSS THE EXTREME NORTHEASTERN CALIFORNIA AND NORTHWESTERN NEVADA NORTH OF GERLACH. GUSTS HAVE  REACHED THE UPPER 40S TO LOW 50 MPH RANGE IN SURPRISE VALLEY AND VERY NORTHERN WASHOE COUNTY; A WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THE EARLY AFTERNOON. WINDS DECREASE THIS EVENING AS THE GRADIENT RELAXES. TEMPERATURES HAVE REMAIN ELEVATED OVERNIGHT FOR MANY LOCATIONS ALONG  THE SIERRA FRONT DUE TO WINDS KEEPING THE LOWER ATMOSPHERE WELL MIXED. AS A RESULT, SURFACE INVERSIONS HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FORM LEADING TO  WARMER THAN EXPECTED LOWS. THIS HAS LED TO AN INCREASE IN FORECAST HIGHS FOR TODAY, GENERALLY AROUND 60 DEGREES FOR WESTERN NEVADA. THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT SEVERAL LOCATIONS, INCLUDING RENO (63 CURRENT RECORD), COULD APPROACH/EXCEED RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES. AS MIXING LESSENS OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS, DAILY HIGH TEMPERATURES COOL A FEW DEGREES BY TUESDAY BACK INTO THE LOW/MID 50S WHICH REMAINS SEASONABLY WARM.

LONG TERM WEATHER....CHRISTMAS EVE THROUGH SUNDAY...NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN THE MODEL DATA OVER THE LAST 24 HOURS. HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE WEST  WILL BREAK DOWN WEDNESDAY AS A LOW AND COLD FRONT MOVE INTO THE WEST COAST. THE FRONT SHOULD PUSH INTO LASSEN, NORTHERN WASHOE AND THE SURPRISE VALLEY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THEN QUICKLY TRACK SOUTH OVER THE NORTHERN SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA ON CHRISTMAS EVE. CONFIDENCE  REMAINS AT MEDIUM FOR A WHITE CHRISTMAS AS THE COLD FRONT MAY BRING A PERIOD OF SNOW TO AREAS NORTH OF CARSON PASS TO FALLON. THOSE TRAVELING CHRISTMAS EVE AND CHRISTMAS MORNING SHOULD KEEP AN EYE ON THE FORECAST FOR POTENTIAL IMPACTS TO TRAVEL DUE TO WINDS AND/OR SNOW. WINDS WILL KICK UP AHEAD OF THE SYSTEM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON WITH POTENTIAL FOR GUSTS OF 35-50 MPH ON CHRISTMAS EVE. WIND PRONE LOCATIONS COULD GUST UP NEAR 60 MPH. WITH THE IMPROVED MIXING, HIGHS IN THE NEVADA VALLEYS MAY RISE INTO THE LOW 60S AND ANY HAZE AND POLLUTANTS TRAPPED IN THE VALLEYS WILL CLEAR OUT. A FEW SHOWERS MAY LINGER FOR CHRISTMAS MORNING WITH A COLD NORTH TO NORTHWEST WIND. HIGHS CHRISTMAS DAY MAY STRUGGLE TO REACH 40  ACROSS THE NEVADA VALLEYS WITH 30S IN THE SIERRA. AFTER CHRISTMAS, LARGE MODEL DIFFERENCES ARISE AS A BLOCKING PATTERN MAY DEVELOP OVER THE  EASTERN PACIFIC. MODELS ARE SPLIT ON EITHER A COLD LOW DROPPING INTO THE GREAT BASIN FROM WESTERN CANADA, OR A LOW CUTTING INTO THE CALIFORNIA COAST AS THE RIDGE IS PINCHED NORTHWARD. EITHER SYSTEM COULD BRING RAIN AND/OR SNOW TO THE REGION ON SUNDAY, BUT NOTHING THAT LOOKS IMPRESSIVE AT THIS TIME.
