.SYNOPSIS...

Dry and seasonable weather will continue with warm days, cool
nights, and typical afternoon breezes.

&&

.DISCUSSION...

Dry conditions along with seasonable temperatures will persist
through the end of the week. High temperatures will be in the mid to
upper 80s for most of western Nevada with highs in the 70s for
Sierra Valleys. Low temperature will be around normal for this time
of year with chilly mornings expected for most areas. Typical
afternoon winds will develop each day with gusts between 20 to 25
mph possible.

A trough will pass just to the north and east of the Sierra and
western Nevada for the weekend. The main impact will be a slight
enhancement to the afternoon winds so there may be gusts up to 30
mph on Saturday and Sunday. Daytime temperatures will also remain
above normal through the weekend. There is no sign of precipitation
through the weekend and into next week as a ridge of high pressure
amplifies across the west. -Edan

...Week 2 and Beyond... There is a lot of question of what might
happen going into week 2 (end of September thru start of October).
The western ridge amplifies further, but there remains a cut off low
in the northeast Pacific, which some ensembles bring inland toward
the end of the month. Downstream, several waves continue to dig into
the eastern CONUS, which may limit the upstream progression
initially. However, if the western ridge becomes too narrow, it
could pinch off and allow the jet stream to advance the previously
cut off low into the Pacific Northwest, along with several other
troughs upstream, leading to a pattern change. -Dawn

&&

.AVIATION...

Widespread VFR with mostly clear skies. Typical westerly breezes
of 8-12 kts (gusts up to 20 kts) can be expected each afternoon.
-Dawn
