Synopsis Quiet weather is expected over the weekend and into
early next week. Temperatures will begin a warming trend; reaching
back up to near seasonal normals by Tuesday. &&
Discussion Today through Saturday.
Mostly light winds and drier air across the region have let
temperatures quickly drop overnight tonight. Mccarran is already
down to 34, as of 3:00am, with below freezing temperatures
already being observed along the edges of the las vegas valley
this morning. Light winds and continued snow cover has allowed the
temperatures in the kingman area to plummet this morning. The 24
hour temperature change at kigm is currently at -14 deg, making it
15 degrees already. The hard freeze will remain in effect until
10 am this morning for much of mohave county. Temperatures will
quickly rebound this afternoon and a gradual warming trend is
expected through much of next week.
Besides temperatures, quiet weather is expected through the weekend
and into early next week as mostly zonal flow remains in place. Some
mid-level moisture will move in later today and allow for some
passing mid to high clouds to push through the region this
By Monday night, a weak ar event will take aim at the central|
sierra, allowing for some spillover precip. Along the eastern
sierra and across northern portions of inyo county by Tuesday
morning. Slight chances will continue through Wednesday across
northern inyo county with dry conditions expected elsewhere.
Mostly zonal flow will continue through the rest of the work week
before another weather system takes aim at the southwest by next
weekend. Models are still inconsistent on the details of the system,
but have been consistent with it being a warm system which would
bring snow levels up quite a bit, potentially creating rain on snow
Aviation For mccarran... Light and variable winds can be

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.
