We’re off to Nevada for a fun little forecast today. What’s going out west?
At 1255PM, PT, Carson City was reporting a temperature of 55 degrees with clear skies. A sharp, high amplitude ridge over the west coast was allowing the region to remain sunny and dry.
The northern ridge will weaken while an undercutting trough will develop over northern Mexico. There won’t really be much change throughout the region, but a westerly flow may lead to a brief rise in temperatures for Carson City. Eventually, a trough will develop off the California coast, and snow shower activity will be possible later, over the weekend, well after the forecast has expired.

Just east of the mountains, there is a lot of potential for a busted temperature forecast. I mean, look at Forecast.io and how different they are. Weatherbug is AWOL, so we don’t get to know their thoughts. Here is the water vapor imagery… not much going on.
