Synopsis Temperatures will finally begin to drop early
this week as a weather system moves across the western states. This
system will bring increased winds to much of the region, especially
Short term Today through Wednesday.
The main weather story is increasing southwest winds today across
much of the region and a downward temperature trend each day through
Wednesday. Southwest winds gusting around 25 mph overnight were
responding to the incoming trough that was moving into the
california coast and speeds will increase this afternoon. The latest
high resolution models and MOS guidance indicate winds gusting over
40 mph around the barstow and fort irwin areas this afternoon
through early evening, so a wind advisory was issued from noon until
9 pm pdt for that zone. Elsewhere across san bernardino, clark,
mohave and eastern lincoln counties, a belt of southwest winds with
gusts of 30-35 mph will be common. While temperatures will lower a
few degrees from Sunday's readings, borderline moderate to high heat
risk will hold on to much of the mojave desert region so the
excessive heat warning will remain in effect until 9 pm this
evening. The latest temperature guidance for las vegas is right in
the 109-110 degree range for this afternoon. It will be possible to
continue the streak of 110f plus degree days, but the official
forecast high for mccarran of 109 indicates we will probably come up
just shy of the record of 10 days with 110f plus set in 1961.
Temperatures will drop an additional 2-3 degrees Tuesday and
Wednesday and afternoon breezes up to 25 mph can be expected each
Long term Thursday through Sunday.
An upper level impulse will make its way across the great basin and
southern rockies on Thursday around a larger trough centered over
saskatchewan. Little effect is expected for the local area as
shortwave ridge builds in right behind across the pacific northwest
and more dominant high pressure remains to our south and west.
Thursday and Friday are expected to remain dry with near normal
temps. Long term models begin to diverge Friday night through Sunday
with the development of the next shortwave progged to move across
the southwest over the weekend. Latest ECMWF solution indicates a
stronger shortwave, keeping temps near normal for the weekend with
more significant cloud cover and the latest gfs, being the weaker
solution, brings temps back up above average Friday through Sunday.
Current forecast trends more towards the ECMWF in regards to temps|
but both are not showing any introduction of available moisture so
forecast remains dry throughout the long term.
Aviation For mccarran... A lull in the gusty, southwest winds is
expected through late this morning when winds will increase once
again out of the southwest. Highest winds are expected between 20z
and 03z when speeds of 20-25 knots gusting 30-35 knots will be
possible. Winds will slowly come down overnight tonight into Tuesday
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Lighter winds early this morning will begin to increase
out of the south southwest by late this morning. Higher winds will
develop in a band across san bernardino, clark, and mohave counties
this afternoon when gusts of up to 40-45 knots will be possible.
Winds slowly decrease overnight into Tuesday morning. Downslope
winds will also be possible on the eastern slopes of the southern
sierra where gusts of 40-45 knots possible across the higher
elevations. Otherwise, a dry airmass will leave rain chances and
cloud cover near nil.
Fire weather Gusty southwest winds will develop today in
response to a dry low pressure system moving across california and
nevada. A red flag warning is in effect this afternoon and early
evening due to strong winds and low relative humidity for portions
of southern nevada and northwest arizona. Another concern is winds
across the sierra and san bernardino counties where gusts of 40-45
mph will occur at times leading to periods of critical fire weather
conditions in those areas this afternoon and early evening.
However, fuels in the sierra are not in the very dry category.
Hydrology Observed flows on unregulated creeks, specifically
independence creek, big pine creek and rock creek indicated flows
have decreased slightly since their peak flows occurred earlier this
week. Creeks, streams and rivers along the eastern sierra slopes of
inyo county as well as the owens valley will be flowing high and
fast through into at least early next week. Minor flooding could
occur near creeks as well as a few low water crossings on some
roadways. Remember, never drive through flooded roadways or around
barricades. Also, pastureland or farmland adjacent to creeks,
streams or rivers could experience areas of standing water.

any significant weather or impacts according to standard operating

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.
