...Monsoon moisture and thunderstorms will return to Nevada...

Monsoon moisture will spread northward across Nevada this weekend, and remain entrenched across the Great Basin through at least Monday and Tuesday. On Saturday, thunderstorms will be confined to areas in and near White Pine County, before expanding to include most of eastern Nevada on Sunday. By early next week, high quality monsoon moisture is expected across Nevada. The combination of weak flow in the atmosphere and high humidity will allow storms to move slowly and produce heavy rainfall, with the associated threat of flash flooding. Flash flood watches may be necessary for parts of Nevada Sunday through Tuesday. If outdoors, be aware of the increased risk of lightning Sunday and early next week.
