Synopsis Expect dry conditions into next week. Even with a
warming trend today and Saturday, temperatures will remain below
average. A storm system will bring gusty winds and cooler
temperatures once again on Sunday and Monday. The rest of the new
week will see a strong warming trend, with temperatures climbing
to near average late in the week.
Discussion We'll maintain the unseasonable mean trough position
over the intermountain west through early next week, with a strong
ridge downstream over eastern states. That means that even with a
warming trend temperatures will remain below average for late may.
Our next strong low will pass just north of us Monday, with strong
gusty winds Sunday for our area on the southwest flank. Critical
fire weather conditions are a concern as outlined in the fire
weather section below.
As the trough loses lower latitude support next week, high
pressure will build across southern tier areas including southern
texas and northern mexico. This will start to become more of a
driver for our weather with a warming trend pushing temperatures
back to about average by late in the week. Even so, ensembles and
ensemble means argue some flavor of troughiness through much of
the great basin should still serve to keep temperatures from|
pushing much past that.
Aviation Valid through 25 12z.
Generally skc conditions through the period. Sfc wind generally less
than 12 kts this morning, becoming swly to nwly this afternoon at 10-
14 kts. The strongest speeds are expected near kdug. Terrain driven
winds less than 10 kts expected tonight into Saturday morning.
Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather Dry conditions through late next week. Expect some
afternoon breezes today, with elevated winds returning this weekend
as a system passes north of the area. 20-ft southwest winds will be
strongest on Sunday, with speeds of 15 to 25 mph and gusts to around
35 mph. Wind will combine with relative humidity of 10 to 15 percent
creating critical fire weather conditions across portions of fire
zones 151 and 152 mainly below 5500 feet, and a fire weather watch
has been issued. Less wind occurs Monday, with typical diurnal
trends returning Tuesday through Thursday. Below normal temperatures
will prevail through the forecast period, though temperatures
nearing normal are expected late next week.
Twc watches warnings advisories

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
