Synopsis An area of high pressure will bring us dry conditions,
lighter winds and seasonal temperatures through the weekend. The
pattern becomes more active for the second half of next week.
However, confidence is low with regard to overall weather and
Update Fair weather expected today with passing high clouds and
even a few wisps of elevated smoke from california wildfire
activity. Light winds near the surface will also prove favorable
for valley haze due to inversions aloft trapping low level
particulates, which becomes increasingly common during the colder
months. Overall, the forecast is in good shape and no updates are
planned this morning.
Short term Through Monday night.
Quiet weather will continue through the weekend as a ridge of high
pressure remains overhead. Some high clouds expected as a few
disturbances pass through the ridge, but overall sunny skies
expected carrying into the beginning of the work week. Temperatures
will continue to hover a degree or two above the seasonal average
until Sunday and Monday when they drop a couple of degrees. Winds
will remain light and diurnal throughout the region.
Long term Tuesday through Saturday. Models have accelerated the
pattern change from what they were showing yesterday, especially the
gfs ensembles. The first shortwave trough lowers heights enough by|
Wednesday afternoon to bring precip chances into the sierra, then
minors out as it swings through the great basin Wednesday night.
After a brief break on thanksgiving day, an atmospheric river should
make landfall on the west coast Friday. It is uncertain whether the
heavy precip will make it as far south as the southern sierra, but
have increased pops a bit to account for the possibility. By Friday
night, there is decent model agreement that the trough axis will
have passed through our area, with only some leftover showers
possible into Saturday. Main concern through the period is still the
risks to late season sierra hikers as the weather takes a quick turn
for the worse.
Aviation For mccarran... Expect winds following typical diurnal
patterns and remaining at or below eight knots today, before a push
of northerly winds around 10 knots arrives on Sunday. No
operationally significant clouds expected through the weekend.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Expect winds following typical diurnal patterns and
remaining at or below 10 knots today, before a push of northerly
winds arrives Sunday. The north winds will be strongest down the
colorado river valley, with gusts up to 30 knots possible. No
operationally significant clouds expected through the weekend.

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.
