Southern Lander County and Southern Eureka County-
Southwestern Elko County-South Central Elko County-
Northwestern Nye County-Northeastern Nye County-
231 PM PDT Mon May 20 2019

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Nevada...north
central Nevada...northeast Nevada...northwest Nevada and south
central Nevada.

.DAY ONE AND TWO...through Tuesday.

A very unseasonably cold weather system will continue to hover
over the Great Basin producing drizzle, light cold rain, and even
snow in the higher valleys and mountains. Temperatures will feel
more like March than late May.

Valleys will likely be spared any snow accumulations, but
mountains may get a few inches of new wet snow. This should not
pose a travel issue, since most of the snow will be in the higher
ranges.

.DAYS THREE THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Sunday.

The storm system camps out over the interior west and allows more
cold air and moisture to invade. More rain showers, drizzle, and
snow are on the way. Isolated thunderstorms each afternoon and
evening are possible.

Snow levels will fluctuate, but valley snows are not out of the
question, although little to no accumulations are expected. The
mountains, however, could get quite a bit. Higher ranges like the
Toiyabes, Independence, Jarbidge, Ruby/East Humboldt, Snake,
Pinon, and Great Basin National Park and such could get one to
two feet through Memorial Day weekend.

Temperatures will be below normal for the week, and only warm up
a bit next weekend.

Again...no travel issues are expected but Memorial Day weekend is
a long way in weather terms. Make your plans, but have a plan B.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotters are asked to report weather phenomena according to
standard operating procedure.
