...Shower and thunderstorm chances continue... ...Heavy rain and flood potential Sunday-Monday... * Showers and thunderstorms will once again form this afternoon and evening. These storms will be capable of gusts in excess of 45 mph, which could kick up dust from desert sinks and playas, in addition to localized heavy rainfall. Additional storm chances continue into the weekend. * Remnant tropical moisture, from what is currently Hurricane Hilary, will surge into the southwest US Sunday through Tuesday. How this interacts with a trough off the west coast will have varying implications on the forecast for the eastern Sierra and western Nevada. Keep in mind, this will not be a hurricane when it makes landfall. * What we know: This moisture will bring additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms Sunday through Tuesday, with rainfall totals trending upwards. High temperatures will also be cooler, 10-20 degrees below normal. Much of the region will receive at least a half inch of rain over the multi-day period. The best chances for higher liquid totals will be south of US-50, where there is a 30-50% chance for at least 2 inches of rainfall. Flash flood concerns are highest for Mono, Mineral, and southern Lyon Counties Sunday into Monday and a watch remains in effect. * Uncertainties: Exactly how much liquid (QPF) the area will see from the rain as there are still a wide range of potential scenarios. Changes in the track of the hurricane remnants will bring differing impacts. Stay-tuned for the latest!
