Synopsis Windy conditions will develop today as an area of low
pressure moves through the northern great basin. Temperatures will
remain a few degrees above normal today, but are forecast to drop
below normal Friday and remain below normal into next week. There
will be a slight chance for showers near the utah border this
An area of low pressure moving through the pacific northwest will
help bring strengthening southwest winds to the region today. The
strongest winds will generally remain across the southern half of
the forecast area with most areas seeing wind gusts between 40-55
mph this afternoon. Latest model runs are showing an increase in
winds across much of mohave county and have gone ahead and added
them into the wind advisory. Have also included the lake mead
national rec area as local models are showing wave heights between 2-
3 feet across bolder basin and the overton arm.
There may be enough energy from the passing system to generate a few
showers and thunderstorms across the northern portions of lincoln
county, but overall coverage should remain rather limited. Today is
expected to be the last day of above normal temperatures as a cold
front will move through the forecast area Friday bringing
temperatures to below normal readings.
Another piece of energy that will reinforce the cooler temperatures
will clip lincoln county Saturday bringing another shot of isolated
showers and thunderstorms, but the remainder of the area will remain
dry. These cooler than normal temperatures are expected to late into|
the middle part of next week as a trough pattern remains in place.
Fire weather Strong southwest winds combined with low afternoon
humidity will lead to near critical fire weather conditions today.
Reports from the field indicate that while fine fuels are dry,
heavier fuels are not quite cured just yet. Erc values across the
area also bolster this point. No fire weather headlines will be
issues at this point, but will make a mention of increased wildfire
threat in the fire weather forecast.
Aviation For mccarran... South to southwesterly winds can be
expected through Friday morning. The strongest winds will occur this
afternoon and evening when gusts of 30 to 35 knots will be common.
Expect a few high-based cumulus clouds through the daytime hours.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Expect stronger southwest winds today, with speeds of
20 to 25 knots and gusts of 30 to 40 knots common. A few higher
gusts will be possible over the mountains. A few showers are
possible over northern lincoln county late this afternoon and
evening, with otherwise just a few high-based cumulus clouds

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
