SYNOPSIS (2:33 AM PDT)...A CLOUDY AND COOL WEATHER PATTERN WILL REMAIN OVER CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA THROUGH THE END OF THE WORK WEEK, BRINGING ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS, MAINLY IN THE AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS. THERE IS A CHANCE OF THIS PATTERN CONTINUING THROUGH THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND, BUT CONFIDENCE IS LOW AT THIS TIME.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: THE STORY REMAINS THE SAME IN THE SHORT TERM PERIOD AND LITTLE CHANGE WAS NEEDED TO THE FORECAST. CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ALONG WITH BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES CONTINUE THROUGH FRIDAY AS A TROUGH REMAINS ANCHORED OVER THE WEST WITH SEVERAL WAVES PASSING THROUGH IT. PLENTY OF MOISTURE REMAINS OVER THE REGION AND SHOWERS ARE LIKELY TO DEVELOP ACROSS MUCH OF THE SIERRA  AND NORTHWEST NEVADA TODAY. A SHORTWAVE WILL LIFT FROM THE SOUTH TO THE NORTH THIS AFTERNOON ACTING AS A FORCING MECHANISM FOR THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT. ONE LIMITING FACTOR ON SURFACE INSTABILITY TODAY WILL BE CLOUD COVER, BUT TAKING A LOOK AT THE CURRENT SATELLITE IMAGERY, THERE DOES APPEAR TO BE A FEW BREAKS IN THE CLOUDS. THE MAIN THREATS TODAY WILL BE BRIEF PERIODS OF MODERATE RAIN, SMALL HAIL, AND OF COURSE DANGEROUS LIGHTNING. ANY STORMS WHICH FORM OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN COULD PRODUCE SNOW ABOVE 9000 FEET, IMPACTING SIERRA PASSES INCLUDING MT ROSE, TIOGA, AND SONORA. SNOW AND HAIL WILL MELT QUICKLY, BUT CAN CREATE BRIEF PERIODS OF SLICK ROAD CONDITIONS. ANOTHER AREA OF LOW  PRESSURE RELOADS THE WESTERN TROUGH ON THURSDAY, WITH WRAP AROUND EASTERLY FLOW ACROSS THE REGION. THIS WILL BANK DEEP MOISTURE ALONG THE SIERRA AND IN NORTHWEST NEVADA WITH ENHANCED UPPER LEVEL DIVERGENCE AIDING LIFT. WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL ONCE  AGAIN DEVELOP INCREASED CHANCES FOR HIGHER RAINFALL TOTALS DUE TO THE DEEP MOISTURE. THIS AREA OF LOW PRESSURE BEGINS TO SHIFT EASTWARD  FRIDAY WITH ADDITIONAL CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS AREA WIDE. THE BEST CHANCES WILL BE FOCUSED IN WESTERN NEVADA, FOLLOWING THE CORE OF  THE LOW, BUT CHANCES STILL LINGER IN THE SIERRA

LONG TERM WEATHER....SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY....UPPER LOW WILL BE EXITING TO THE EAST SATURDAY WITH A GENERAL DECREASE IN SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY. THE BEST CHANCE OF SHOWERS WILL BE OVER THE BASIN AND RANGE WITH MORE ISOLATED COVERAGE ELSEWHERE. MODELS CONTINUE TO DIVERGE OVER THE REMAINDER OF MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND AS THEY STRUGGLE TO TRACK LOW DROPPING SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. THE ECMWF WAS SLOWER AND BIT FARTHER NORTH WITH TRACK, TAKING IT ACROSS NORTHERN NEVADA ON MEMORIAL DAY. MEANWHILE THE GFS CAME IN FARTHER SOUTH, DROPPING  UPPER LOW RIGHT OVER THE GREAT BASIN SUN-MON. WE COOLED TEMPS ONCE AGAIN, BUT ONLY A FEW DEGREES. WE ALSO MAINTAINED A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. HOWEVER CONFIDENCE IN THIS FORECAST IS LOW. IT MAY BE MUCH COOLER AND WETTER IF THE GFS VERIFIES. MAKE SURE TO CHECK THE FORECAST DAILY AS WE GET CLOSER TO THE WEEKEND, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE OUTDOOR PLANS.
