UPDATE (9:44 AM PDT)...THIS MORNING'S MODELS ARE A BIT STRONGER ON THE WINDS FOR THIS AFTERNOON AND THIS EVENING. PEAK GUSTS IN WIND PRONE AREAS MAY REACH 60 MPH WITH 35-45 MPH GUSTS IN VALLEYS. STRONGEST WINDS TO ARRIVE FROM 6-10 PM, WHICH IS THE TIME THE TROUGH WILL PASS OVER THE NORTHERN SIERRA. MAIN CONCERNS ARE TO TRAVEL FOR HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES ALONG HIGHWAY 395/INTERSTATE 580 FROM LASSEN COUNTY THROUGH WESTERN NEVADA AND  INTO MONO COUNTY. BLOWING DUST DOWN WIND OF DRY LAKE BEDS WITH MAY REDUCE VISIBILITY ON I-80 EAST OF FERNLEY, HIGHWAY 50 EAST OF CARSON CITY AND HIGHWAY 95 NORTH OF FALLON. LAKE WIND ADVISORIES REMAIN IN EFFECT FOR TAHOE AND PYRAMID. BOATERS SHOULD STAY OFF THE LAKE WATERS TODAY DUE TO WAVES AS HIGH AS 4 FEET. SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS STILL ON TRACK FOR TODAY, WITH BEST CHANCES NORTH OF I-80. HOWEVER DO THINK THERE WILL BE A PERIOD OF SHOWERS ALONG THE WEST SHORE OF TAHOE THIS EVENING AS WELL. SNOW LEVELS WILL LIKELY BE TOO HIGH FOR ACCUMULATIONS ON ROADS, THROUGH A PERIOD OF A RAIN/SNOW MIX MAY IMPACT DONNER, ECHO AND THE MT ROSE SUMMIT THIS EVENING.

SYNOPSIS (3:19 AM PDT)...LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE THROUGH THE REGION TODAY WITH GUSTY WINDS ACROSS THE SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA. SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE LATER TODAY WITH THE BEST CHANCE NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80. AFTER A COOL DAY TUESDAY, TEMPERATURES WILL WARM THE REST OF THE WEEK. A SECOND  LOW WILL REACH THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST LATE IN THE WEEK, WITH GUSTY WINDS AND A CHANCE OF RAIN AND MOUNTAIN SNOW.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: QUICK MOVING TROUGH WILL MOVE ACROSS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND WESTERN NEVADA TODAY. MAIN CONCERNS WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL BE THE WINDS AHEAD OF THE TROUGH AND THE INCREASED CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION. WINDS HAVE CONTINUED TO TREND UPWARDS OVERNIGHT ALONG THE RIDGES WITH SLIDE MOUNTAIN GUSTING IN THE 40S. WIND GUSTS WILL START TO MIX DOWN INTO LOWER ELEVATIONS LATER THIS MORNING. GUSTS OF 30-40 MPH WILL SPREAD ACROSS WESTERN NEVADA AND THE EASTERN SIERRA BY MID TO LATE IN THE AFTERNOON. WIND PRONE LOCATIONS ALONG HIGHWAY 395 MAY EXPERIENCE WIND GUSTS UP TO 45 MPH THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS WILL START ON LAKE TAHOE BY NOON, WITH  ROUGH LAKE CONDITIONS ON PYRAMID LAKE BY MID TO LATE AFTERNOON. MODELS HAVE DIFFERED SLIGHTLY OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS, BUT IT APPEARS THAT THE  BEST CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION WILL REMAIN NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80 AND ALONG THE SIERRA CREST AS THE COLD FRONT SWEEPS ACROSS THE REGION. FORECAST MODEL CROSS SECTIONS SHOW AN UPPER LEVEL PV WAVE JUST BEHIND THE INITIAL SURFACE COLD FRONT THAT COULD PRODUCE SHOWERS ACROSS THE BASIN AND RANGE, ESPECIALLY EAST OF RENO LATE TONIGHT INTO EARLY TUESDAY MORNING. SNOW LEVELS WITH THIS SYSTEM HAVE TRENDED SLIGHTLY DOWNWARD WITH EACH FORECAST MODEL RUN, BUT IT APPEARS THAT THEY WILL REMAIN RIGHT AROUND 7000 FEET ALTHOUGH STRONGER SHOWERS COULD DRAG SNOW LEVELS LOWER. THE HIGHEST RAINFALL TOTALS COULD BE UP TO A HALF INCH ACROSS WESTERN LASSEN AND PLUMAS COUNTIES TODAY WITH LESSER AMOUNTS FURTHER EAST AND SOUTH.  THE TROUGH QUICKLY EXITS THE REGION TONIGHT WITH MUCH COOLER CONDITIONS ON TAP FOR TUESDAY. AFTERNOON HIGHS WILL STRUGGLE TO REACH THE LOW 60S ACROSS WESTERN NEVADA WITH 50S FOR THE SIERRA.

LONG TERM WEATHER....THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...MODEL DATA CONTINUES TO CONVERGE ON A TROUGH PASSAGE THIS WEEKEND BUT INDIVIDUAL RUNS DIFFER ON THE TIMING AND DETAIL. AN ATMOSPHERIC RIVER WILL BE POINTED AT NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA AND OREGON TO BEGIN THE PERIOD WITH THE GFS MOST AGGRESSIVE IN SAGGING THIS MOISTURE SOUTHWARD INTO FAR NORTHEAST CA AND NORTHWEST NV. WE MAINTAINED A SLIGHT CHANCE OF RAIN ACROSS THESE AREAS  FOR THU-FRI ALTHOUGH MUCH OF THE PRECIPITATION WILL LIKELY STAY JUST TO THE NORTH AND WEST AS OFFSHORE TROUGH DIGS AND DOWNSTREAM RIDGE  AMPLIFIES, PUSHING THE EAST END OF THIS MOISTURE TAP NORTHWARD AND AWAY FROM OUR AREA. TEMPERATURES WILL BE QUITE MILD THU-FRI AND MAY PUSH CLOSE TO 80 IN SOME WESTERN NV VALLEYS. TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO PUSH INLAND SATURDAY WITH THE GFS/GEM 6-12 HOURS FASTER THAN THE ECMWF. THE TROUGH IS FORECAST TO BE ANOTHER PROGRESSIVE PASSAGE AS ANOTHER TROUGH DROPS INTO THE NORTHEAST PACIFIC IN ITS WAKE AND THIS WOULD SUPPORT THE FASTER  SOLUTIONS. LIKE PREVIOUS SYSTEMS, THIS WILL FAVOR THE NORTHERN SIERRA AND NORTHWEST NV FOR PRECIPITATION. WHILE THIS TROUGH WILL BE A FAST MOVER, IT WILL HAVE A BETTER MOISTURE TAP SUCH THAT PRECIPITATION TOTALS COULD BE A BIT HIGHER THAN PREVIOUS SYSTEMS FROM THE TAHOE BASIN NORTHWARD. OTHERWISE GUSTY WINDS WILL ACCOMPANY FRONTAL PASSAGE LATE FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY WITH MUCH COOLER TEMPERATURES FOR THE WEEKEND. WE LOWERED TEMPERATURES CONSIDERABLY SAT-SUN AND INCREASED THE CHANCES OF PRECIPITATION TO THE CHANCE CATEGORY FOR NORTHEAST CA FRI NIGHT AND SATURDAY. ONCE CONFIDENCE INCREASES IN THE DETAILS OF THIS SYSTEM, THE CHANCES FOR NORTHEAST CA WILL LIKELY GO MUCH HIGHER.
