Synopsis Dry, quiet, and warm conditions are expected this
weekend into the upcoming week. Temperatures will reach their
highest levels of 2018 thus far.

Short term Today through Monday night.

Clear and quiet conditions under high pressure will continue through
the short term period. Any significant weather will track well to
our north. Weak disturbances will bring occasional periods of high
clouds which could fiddle with high temperatures Sunday.

Temperatures in general will continue to warm through at least
Monday, reaching the low-mid 90s in las vegas, and upper 90s to
around 100 in death valley and along the colorado river valley by
Monday afternoon. No significant changes were made to the forecast
this afternoon.

Long term Tuesday through Saturday.

Persistent ridge will remain over the area through mid next week
with temperatures near 10 degrees above seasonal normals. High
clouds will spill over the ridge on Tuesday and Wednesday but with a
slight breeze from the south to southwest these clouds shouldn't
limit MAX temps very much. Closed low churning off the west coast on
Wednesday will slowly lift northeastward towards the pac northwest
Thursday and Friday. Models are not in good agreement with the
degree to which the ridge over the local area will weaken as a
result of approaching low and also in how much moisture the low can
successfully advect over the area. Currently, the impacts look to be
minimal through Friday night with breezy, south to southwest winds
and isolated, higher elevation precip over the southern sierra
towards the end of next week.

Aviation For mccarran... No significant winds or clouds expected
through the weekend.

For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Expect mostly clear skies and winds under 10 knots
through the weekend, except west winds possibly reaching 15-20 knots
in the barstow area Sunday evening and night.

Spotter information statement Spotters are encouraged to report
any significant weather or impacts according to standard operating
procedures.

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
