SYNOPSIS (2:13 AM PDT)...TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN WELL ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH THIS WEEKEND. A WEAK LOW PRESSURE TROUGH WILL DEVELOP NEAR THE WEST COAST AND MOVE INLAND EARLY NEXT WEEK. THIS WILL RESULT IN AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. TEMPERATURES TREND LOWER BY MID WEEK WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR AN UNSETTLED AND COOLER WEATHER PATTERN.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: WARM TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE THIS WEEKEND AND EARLY NEXT WEEK AS WE REMAIN IN A PERSISTENT UPPER LEVEL PATTERN. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL ONLY BE A DEGREE OR TWO LOWER THAN YESTERDAY WITH HIGHS AROUND THE 80 DEGREE MARK ACROSS WESTERN NEVADA AND UPPER 60S/LOW 70S FOR THE SIERRA. AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL AGAIN TRIGGER OFF THE ELEVATED HEAT SOURCE OF MOUNTAIN  TERRAIN WITH THE BEST POTENTIAL EXISTING ACROSS THE SIERRA FROM ROUGHLY SOUTH OF HWY 50 INTO ALPINE AND MONO COUNTIES. THIS CONVECTION WILL THEN  BE GUIDED EASTWARD THROUGH THE AFTERNOON BY SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW WHICH SHOULD THEN PROVIDE WESTERN NEVADA WITH ITS BEST CHANCES FOR  PRECIPITATION PARTICULARLY ACROSS SOUTHERLY LYON AND MINERAL COUNTIES. THERE IS ALSO A POSSIBILITY FOR ISOLATED STORMS ACROSS NORTHERN LASSEN  COUNTY IN THE COMMON CONVERGENCE ZONE DOWNWIND OF LASSEN PEAK. MODELS ARE LESS IMPRESSIVE IN TERMS OF THE AMOUNT INSTABILITY ACROSS NORTHERN  LASSEN BUT WITH SOME INDICATIONS OF LOW LEVEL MOISTURE CONVERGENCE AND YESTERDAY'S CUMULUS CONGESTUS DEVELOPMENT THERE, WILL MAINTAIN THE ISOLATED COVERAGE. BY MONDAY THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN BEGINS TO BECOME MORE PROGRESSIVE AS A CLOSED LOW OVER THE GULF OF ALASKA HELPS PUSH A STALLED TROUGH ACROSS THE WEST COAST. ALTHOUGH NO STRONG DYNAMICS WILL BE PRESENT, DAYTIME SHOWERS AND STORMS COULD SEE SOME ENHANCED DEFORMATION FORCING WHICH SHOULD PRODUCE HIGHER CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION THAN THIS WEEKEND. AS SUCH, HAVE CONTINUED TO TREND SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES HIGHER WITH THE BEST POTENTIAL AGAIN SOUTH OF HWY 50 ALONG THE SIERRA. A DRY AND DEEP SURFACE MIXED LAYER WILL PROMOTE GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS IN AND NEAR THESE STORMS. CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES AND ABUNDANT SMALL HAIL ARE ALSO POSSIBLE WITHIN HEAVIER CORES. THOSE WITH OUTDOOR RECREATIONAL PLANS SHOULD KEEP UPDATED ON THE FORECAST BEFORE HEADING OUT.

LONG TERM WEATHER....TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY....MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW A TROUGH DROPPING OVER THE SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA FOR MID TO LATE IN THE WEEK. MAIN IMPACTS ARE GUSTY WINDS FOR TUESDAY AHEAD OF THE TROUGH, FOLLOWED BY A COUPLE DAYS OF SHOWERS AND MUCH COOLER TEMPERATURES. FOR TUESDAY THERE IS GROWING CONFIDENCE IN A BREEZY AFTERNOON AND EVENING WINDS NORTH OF HIGHWAY 50 AS THE TROUGH DROPS INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. PEAK GUSTS COULD REACH 40 MPH. BY WEDNESDAY MODELS VARY A BIT ON HOW QUICKLY THE LOW WILL DROP OVER WESTERN NEVADA, BUT THE OVERALL THEME IS FOR A COOLING TREND WITH A CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. AS THE COLD LOW MOVES OVERHEAD AFTERNOON HIGHS MAY FALL INTO THE UPPER 40S AND 50S IN THE SIERRA, WITH 50S TO LOW 60S FOR THE WESTERN NEVADA VALLEYS. SNOW LEVELS SHOULD DROP BELOW 7000 FEET, PERHAPS AS LOW AS 5000 FEET DURING THE OVERNIGHT AND EARLY MORNING HOURS. TYPICALLY THE SHOWERS UNDER THESE COLD SPRING  LOWS WILL BE A MIX OF RAIN, SNOW AND PELLET SHOWERS. SNOW AND/OR PELLET ACCUMULATIONS ARE POSSIBLE, WHICH COULD IMPACT TRAVEL OVER THE SIERRA PASSES, INCLUDING TIOGA (CA-120), SONORA (CA-108) AND EBBETTS (CA-4). THE LOW SHOULD DRIFT EAST BY NEXT WEEKEND, HOWEVER THE GFS DEVELOPS A BLOCKING RIDGE ALONG 140W. THIS COULD KEEP A TROUGH WITH COOLER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES OVER NEVADA THROUGH NEXT WEEKEND.
