Synopsis A ridge of high pressure will provide continued mild
weather for the region Wednesday and Thursday. A cold pacific system
with limited moisture will then move into the southwest states
bringing gusty winds and a chances for light rain and snow Friday
through early Saturday. Cool and unsettled conditions will persist
through the weekend and early next week.
Update Cloud band and sprinkles associated with a weak shortwave
trough was exiting the area to the east. The next area of high
clouds was rapidly increasing from the west however and the gfs
indicates there will be quite a bit of this high cloud cover over
the area through much of Wednesday. I updated to increase sky cover
230 pm pst Tue jan 16 2018
Short term Through Thursday night.
The next couple days will bring more of the same mild weather we
have been experiencing the past several days with well above normal
high temps and only high clouds. This is thanks to the positive tilt
ridge that will amplify Wednesday over the southwest states before
slowly being pushed to the east Thursday ahead of a deep trough
approaching the west coast. Light winds will continue for most areas
through Thursday morning then south winds will begin to increasing
Thursday afternoon and night... Especially over inyo, esmeralda and
nye counties. The southern sierra crest will see strong winds
developing and we will need to watch for possible downslope
conditions in the owens valley Thursday night, but local high res
models do not look favorable for now.
Long term Friday through Tuesday.
Forecast still on track for a potent and cold storm system to move
into the area over the weekend, bringing in some of the coldest air
we've seen in the region in several weeks. The GFS is about 12|
hours faster with this system, but overall the handling is similar,
with a progressive shortwave trough swinging through the southwest
and closing off somewhere near the four corners. Gusty southwest
winds will overspread the region in advance of this system,
resulting in enhanced mixing and mild temperatures for much of the
area Friday afternoon. Shower chances Friday and Friday night will
increase along and ahead of the cold front, with the greatest across
the higher terrain in areas north of las vegas, where anywhere from
a dusting to few inches of light fluffy snow will be possible in
elevations above 4000 feet. Best precipitation coverage will likely
be across areas north of clark county, but the spring mountains may
squeeze out a dusting of snow as well.
By Saturday, cold air will rapidly filter into the region with high
temperatures dropping 10 to 15 degrees from Fridays values. Some
morning rain and snow is a good bet across northern mohave county,
followed by some residual shower activity favoring the higher
elevations during the afternoon. Short wave ridging will build in
Sunday but a fast pacific jet stream aimed at northern california
may lead to renewed mountain snowfall across the sierra by early
next week. Temperatures Sunday and Monday will remain fairly cool,
with breezy north winds gradually subsiding Sunday into Monday.
Aviation For mccarran... Tranquil conditions will persist through
Wednesday with diurnal winds generally less than 7 knots and periods
of high clouds above 20 kft.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... An area of high pressure will provide tranquil weather
conditions with periods of high clouds above 20 kft and generally
light winds. The exception will be near laughlin-bullhead city where
north gusts of 20-25 knots can be expected Wednesday.

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.
