Synopsis Gusty north winds will persist Monday and Tuesday,
especially within the lower colorado river valley and adjacent
eastern san bernardino county. The first freeze of the season will
occur in parts of the owens valley and southern great basin Monday
morning. Gradually moderating temperatures are expected the rest of
the week with isolated showers or thunderstorms possible over parts
of mohave county Tuesday and Wednesday.
Update The overall forecast is on track except the sky grids were
adjusted earlier to account for the fairly solid swath of clouds
around 15 kft that have extended across southern inyo northern san
bernardino counties and into clark. The clouds will continue pushing
toward the south-southwest in association with a reinforcing shot of
energy diving out of west central nevada across southern california.
This will also enhance the north-northeast winds overnight through
Monday afternoon. The latest guidance support strong winds around
laughlin-bullhead city with gusts around 50 mph Monday morning
through the early afternoon.
Short term Through Monday night.
Cold front ready to exit southeast san bernardino and southern
mohave counties shortly. Kely-keed surface pressure difference
continues to increase and is forecast to peak between 14-16 mb
Monday morning. Downward momentum transfer from stronger winds aloft
will help contribute to the continued strong winds in the colorado
river from lake mohave south, as well as eastern san bernardino
county through Monday evening. Wave height model continues to spit
out significant wave heights building to 2-3 feet from cottonwood
cove south to katherine landing tonight through Monday. As we've
been advertising, folks will feel a chill in the air Monday and
Tuesday mornings as coolest air of the fall season filters in behind
the cold front. Made no change to existing wind advisory and freeze
Long term Tuesday through Sunday.
Models continue to advertise the closed low over the southwest us to
meander around from the colorado river valley to central arizona,
and back up into utah throughout the week. It does appear that
gfs ECMWF canadian all bring some elevated moisture in from the east
on Tuesday, possibly enough to produce some rain for mostly mohave
county but possibly as far west as the colorado river valley.
However, due to a lack of any forcing other than meager lifting
associated with the low, do not expect any of showers that develop
to be significant. QPF values should remain minimal as a result.
Other than that, the low should bring at least some cloud cover to
the eastern third of the CWA through much of the week. Temperatures
will slowly warm through the week reaching the low 80s for the
valley by the weekend. The next best shot at pops after Tue wed
looks like Saturday Sunday as moisture caught within the low swings
back west and over southern nevada and southern california.
Aviation For mccarran... Gusty north to northeast winds will
persist through the overnight hours and much of the day Monday.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Gusty north to northeast winds will persist through the
overnight hours and much of the day Monday. Strongest winds will be
along the colorado river valley. TAF sites keed and kifp will have
the higher gusts, with around 40 knots possible. A broken cloud deck
around 15 kft msl will push to across san bernardino county
overnight then clear out early Monday morning.

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.
