SYNOPSIS (2:30 AM PDT)...HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE SOUTHWEST WILL LEAD TO WARM CONDITIONS THROUGH THURSDAY. LOW PRESSURE AND A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE INTO THE WEST COAST ON FRIDAY. THIS WILL BRING GUSTY WINDS WITH A PERIOD OF RAIN AND SNOW INTO SATURDAY. SNOW LEVELS MAY FALL AS LOW AS 4500 FEET SATURDAY MORNING.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: TRANQUIL CONDITIONS THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE STRENGTHENS OVER THE SOUTHWEST BRINGING HIGH TEMPERATURES ABOUT 10 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. WINDS WILL BEGIN TO PICK UP OVER RIDGES THURSDAY NIGHT AS A DEEP AREA OF LOW PRESSURE APPROACHES THE COAST, BECOMING GUSTY DURING THE DAY FRIDAY AS A COLD FRONT SHIFTS THROUGH THE REGION. THERE IS NO APPRECIABLE DOWNSLOPE SIGNATURE AND WINDS WILL BE PRIMARILY GRADIENT DRIVEN WITH GUSTS  PEAKING IN THE 35 TO 45 MPH RANGE. THIS IS LESS THAN OUR PREVIOUS TWO WIND EVENTS, HOWEVER IS STILL ENOUGH TO CAUSE IMPACTS TO HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES AND BLOW AROUND ANY HALLOWEEN DECORATIONS. THE INITIAL BAND OF MOISTURE ARRIVES ALONG THE COLD FRONT, THE TIMING OF WHICH HAS SLOWED BY ABOUT 6 HOURS IN MOST RECENT MODEL RUNS. THEREFORE, HAVE ADJUSTED THE FORECAST  ACCORDINGLY. CURRENT PROJECTIONS SHOW PRECIPITATION REACHING NORTHEAST CALIFORNIA NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80 EARLY FRIDAY AFTERNOON, SPREADING  INTO THE SOUTHERN SIERRA FRIDAY EVENING. THERE IS STILL A BIT OF A SPLIT IN THE TROUGH AS THE JET DIGS SOUTH WITH THE BEST ENERGY PUSHING INTO MONO  COUNTY, WHICH IS WHERE THE HEAVIEST SNOW IS ANTICIPATED TO BE. SNOW LEVELS WILL FALL RAPIDLY BEHIND THE COLD FRONT WITH TRAVEL IMPACTS LIKELY STARTING IN THE SIERRA BY LATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON INTO FRIDAY EVENING. IT IS UNLIKELY WE WILL SEE ANY PRECIPITATION IN WESTERN NEVADA UNTIL THE FRONT  PASSES, BUT SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED FOR A FEW HOURS ALONG AND JUST BEHIND THE FRONT. ONE CAVEAT IS MODELS ARE INDICATING THE POSSIBILITY OF A  DEFORMATION BAND FORMING IN WESTERN NEVADA ALONG WITH PRECIPITATION ENHANCEMENT OVER THE WEST CENTRAL BASIN AND RANGE IN THE LEFT EXIT  REGION OF THE JET LATE FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY MORNING. IF THIS DOES OCCUR, PRECIPITATION TOTALS WILL BE HIGHER WITH SHOWERS LASTING LONGER. CONFIDENCE IS ONLY MODERATE AT THIS POINT IN TIME. THE SYSTEM DOES NOT HAVE AN APPRECIABLE MOISTURE SOURCE, BUT IS VERY DYNAMIC WHICH SHOULD MAKE IT EFFICIENT AT PRODUCING PRECIPITATION. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS OF 8 TO 12 INCHES ARE ON TRACK FOR THE SIERRA ABOVE 7000 FEET, WITH SEVERAL INCHES POSSIBLE IN THE LAKE TAHOE BASIN AND LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS DOWN TO 5000 FEET IN WESTERN NEVADA. AS THE CORE OF THE UPPER LOW MOVES ACROSS WESTERN NEVADA, IT BECOMES INCREASINGLY UNSTABLE, AND ALONG WITH A FAVORABLE JET POSITION, HAVE ADDED A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS TO THE FORECAST FRIDAY NIGHT.

LONG TERM WEATHER....SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...MODELS ARE A BIT SLOWER THIS MORNING WITH THE SYSTEM MOVING THROUGH FOR SATURDAY. IN ADDITION,  THE SYSTEM IS MORE SPLIT AS IT LIFTS OUT THROUGH THE SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA SATURDAY. GFS CONTINUES TO BE THE FASTEST WITH THE EC SLOWER AND NAM SLOWEST. WITH THE SPLIT LIFTING OUT, THE MODELS ARE NOW STRONGER WITH A SURFACE LOW FORMING OVER CENTRAL NEVADA SATURDAY MORNING AND SOME STRONG LOW LEVEL DEFORMATION ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE COLD FRONT. GIVEN THESE TRENDS, HAVE INCREASED POPS FOR SATURDAY ESPECIALLY OVER NORTHWEST NEVADA. IF THIS DEVELOPS, A BAND OF RAIN/MOUNTAIN SNOW WILL BE MOVING OUT OF NORTHWEST NEVADA DURING THE MORNING. FOR THE SIERRA, EXPECT UPSLOPE SHOWERS TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE DAY. ALSO ADDED A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS TO WESTERN NEVADA AS THERE IS SOME INSTABILITY SHOWING UP SO A STRIKE OR TWO IS POSSIBLE. IT WILL ALSO BE MUCH COOLER WITH HIGHS MAINLY 40-50 DEGREES. THAT WILL FEEL COLDER WITH SOME LOCALLY BRISK W-NW WINDS NEAR 15 MPH. EXPECT SOME SLOW CLEARING SATURDAY NIGHT AS THE SYSTEM PULLS AWAY WITH RIDGING BUILDING IN BEHIND. IF SKIES CLEAR, IT WILL BE A COLD NIGHT ACROSS THE EASTERN SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA. THE RIDGE WILL BECOME MORE ENTRENCHED EARLY NEXT WEEK WITH WARMING TEMPS ALOFT LEADING TO FEWER CLOUDS WITH COLD NIGHTS. DURING THE DAY, EXPECT SOME WEAK TO MODERATE VALLEY INVERSIONS THAT WILL KEEP WESTERN NEVADA SLOWER TO WARM UP THAN THE SIERRA. IT WOULD NOT BE SURPRISING TO SEE SIMILAR HIGHS AT KTVL AND KRNO/KLOL DUE TO THE INVERSIONS.
