Dry conditions, near seasonal temperatures, and mostly sunny skies
can be expected through Wednesday along with breezy conditions
down the colorado river valley through tomorrow night. The next
storm system will move in late Wednesday bringing breezy
conditions and chances for snow across the southern sierra and
south central nevada through Thursday night.
Short term Today through Wednesday.
Ridge will build over the region through Wednesday before shifting
eastward as the next storm system pushes onshore of the west
coast Wednesday into Wednesday night. This will allow for quiet
weather through midweek with dry conditions and light winds. The
exception will be along the colorado river valley where gusty,
north winds will persist for another day. Gusts should remain around
25 knots with slightly higher winds in the laughlin bullhead city
area. As weather pattern begins to change on Wednesday ahead of
the trough southwesterly flow will increase and winds across
esmeralda, nye, and inyo counties could become breezy to locally
windy Wednesday afternoon and evening. Potential for downslope
winds will also be present along the eastern slopes of the
southern sierra and spring mountains late Wednesday night into
early Thursday but confidence is low in these winds will make it
to the lower elevations. Initial precip ahead of the system will
begin late Wednesday night early Thursday morning along the
southern sierra and white mountains. Temps will remain near
Long term Thursday through Monday.
A fast moving pacific trough with limited moisture is expected to
move across the region Thursday, but impacts will be minor and
confined mainly to the southern sierra and south central nevada
zones. The latest medium range models depict that this trough will
be slightly less amplified than indicated the past couple days and
most of the moisture will be intercepted by the west slopes of the|
southern sierra. It is a relatively cold trough and the cold pool
will brush central and southern nevada Thursday with possibly a few
snow showers across central nye and lincoln counties. Widespread
southwest winds will develop ahead of the trough axis, but the
latest national and local wind models indicate gusts will generally
be in the 25-35 mph range except higher in the mountains. There will
be some strong downslope potential for the owens valley early
Thursday, but confidence is low at this time.
Temperatures will drop 5 degrees or so Friday on the back side of
the trough then a ridge will build over our region through the
weekend allowing temperatures to rebound back a little above normal
with highs generally in the 60s across the mojave desert zones.
Sustained north north winds 15-25 mph can be expected down the
colorado river valley from laughlin-bullhead city to lake havasu
through the weekend.
Aviation For mccarran... Variable winds generally less than 7
knots can be expected through Tuesday under occasional high clouds.
Winds will likely favor a northeasterly direction late mornings and
afternoons and a southwesterly direction at night.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Most of the region will see variable winds less than 10
knots through Tuesday under occasional high clouds. The exception is
along the colorado river valley from laughlin-bullhead city
southward where northerly gusts of 20-30 knots can be expected late
mornings and afternoons.

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.
