Synopsis A weather system moving across northern nevada through
tonight will bring light precipitation chances to the sierra and
great basin into tomorrow. Drier and warmer conditions are
expected to start next week, but more unsettled weather is
possible by midweek with gusty winds likely as well.
Short term Through Monday night.
Weak system clipping the region today and tonight, bringing
little impacts other than breezy southwest winds for most, with
light precipitation chances limited to the sierra nevada and great
basin. Amounts should remain rather light... A hundredth or two of
rain and maybe a quick couple inches above 7000 ft. High pressure
will rebound for Sunday and much of Monday, brining lighter winds
and helping to drive temperatures up to the warmer side of
Long term Tuesday through Saturday.
Tuesday will be the warmest day of the next seven with MAX temps
topping out around five degrees above seasonal normals and las vegas
potentially seeing its first 80 degree day of the year. A broad, mid-
level trough will then dominate the weather weather pattern for the
remainder of the period as a series of shortwaves rotate through the
region. Ahead of this approaching system on Tuesday, gusty winds and
orographically-induced shower activity can be expected over the
southern sierra. As the first wave moves in on Wednesday, activity
over the southern sierra will increase as well as spread eastward
across the southern great basin. A majority of the moisture will be
intercepted by the sierra with minimal precip accumulations expected
elsewhere. Any snow accumulations higher than a couple of inches
should remain above 7000 feet in the sierra where 24-hour totals
could require a low end winter weather product. Winds over the
higher elevations will increase as well as the upper level jet sinks|
southward over the area leading to potential for downslope winds
late Tuesday into early Wednesday in the lee of the sierra and
spring mountains. Elsewhere, the band of stronger winds will set up
further south on Wednesday across southern nv, southeast ca, and
northwest az where gusts in excess of 40 mph will be possible.
Latest models have trended slightly slower in this first wave's exit
so lingering scattered shower chances will remain over lincoln
county into Thursday evening. Temps will come down to seasonal
normals midweek onward.
Aviation For mccarran... Gusty, southwest winds will
continue into this evening with speeds around 15 knots gusting 25
knots. A few upticks in sustained speeds, closer to 20 knots, will
be possible this afternoon but should be short-lived. Decreasing
cloud cover is expected. Gusts will become intermittent later this
evening with speeds remaining 10-12 knots through after midnight.
Light, diurnal winds are expected for Sunday.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... A few light showers will be possible through late
tonight across the southern great basin. Otherwise, most areas will
remain dry with gusty, south to southwest winds for the remainder of
the afternoon and evening. Speeds will remain between 10-20 knots
for most areas. The exception will be across the western mojave
desert where slightly stronger winds are expected. Winds will slowly
come down overnight with light, diurnal winds expected on Sunday.

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.
