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 in the overall weather and potential
impacts.

Short term Today through Saturday.

Pleasant weather will continue through the weekend as high pressure
remains overhead. A few weak impulses will continue to aid in some
high clouds, but overall skies should remain mostly clear through
the weekend. Little change in temperatures are expected through
Saturday with temps a degree or two cooler on Sunday. Light diurnal
winds expected across the area through the weekend.

Long term Monday through Friday.

High confidence Monday through midweek as as weather pattern does
not change significantly. Dry weather, seasonable temperatures, and
light winds expected.

After that, confidence decreases as a pacific trough pushes onshore
for the second half of the week. There is still a significant amount
of model difference on eh strength of the upper level trough and
how much moisture will be available at low levels. ECMWF shows a
stronger, wetter solution with precipitation possible Wednesday
night through thanksgiving. The GFS hows a modest atmospheric wave
with some moisture, but not enough to over top the sierra blockade.

Given the model inconsistencies for the potential system, current
forecast favors a drier solution since that is more typical for the
desert southwest. In addition, the GEFS shows and even drier than
the deterministic 12z gfs. Currently, the best chance for
precipitation will be in the crest of the sierra in inyo county,
and the high terrain of nye and northern lincoln counties. Will
monitor trends as if the wetter solution does occur- it would impact
holiday travel.

Aviation For mccarran... Light winds are expected through
Saturday, favoring diurnal trends but remaining below 8kts. High
clouds will pass at times and could become bkn, but will remain
above 20fkt. Saturday afternoon will favor light east winds with
scattered high clouds.

For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Light winds expected across much of the region
following typical diurnal trends. Occasional high clouds are
possible.

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

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
