Synopsis A seasonal day expected today before temperatures
increase to near-record and or record breaking levels by mid week
and thanksgiving. Abundant high clouds over the area today will
provide filtered sunshine then skies will become mostly clear with
dry and calm conditions through thanksgiving day.
Short term Today through Wednesday night
ir imagery shows a considerable amount of high cirrus streaming
across the great basin and through the mojave desert this morning.
Broken to overcast skies will dominate most of the forecast area
today, with the thickest cloud cover focused over the northern
zones. There has been little change in overall synoptic evolution
from previous forecasts, as ridging is anticipated to amplify and
persist over the southwest through the week. As the ridge builds
in today and tomorrow, today's cirrus shield will begin to lift
northward atop the ridge leaving clear blue skies on Wednesday.
The main highlight in the forecast will be the increasing
temperatures. Today, under decent cloud cover, temperatures will be
similar to those on Sunday, but by Wednesday multiple record highs
are expected to be tied or surpassed. Of course afternoon
temperatures will heavily depend on pbl mixing and the strength of
the previous night's inversion. Aside from the clouds today and
tomorrow and the mid-week warm up, expect dry and calm conditions.
Long term Thanksgiving day through Sunday.
A strong ridge of high pressure will still be in control of our
weather thanksgiving day with mostly sunny skies, light winds and
well above normal temperatures. Still forecasting 80 degrees for a
high in las vegas which is splitting the difference between the
operational ECMWF and GFS numerical guidance. This pattern is
forecast to continue through Friday. The ridge axis shifts east over
the rockies for next weekend as an upper trough approaches the
pacific northwest coast. This will lead to some minor cooling
although temperatures look to remain well above normal. Some|
increase in high clouds can be expected along with areas of breezy
south southwest winds. The ECMWF shows some potential for a little
disturbance out ahead of the main trough possibly bringing enough
moisture into the sierra for some snow showers by Sunday afternoon
but for now I have held off in mentioning anything in the forecast.
Climate Temperatures during the latter half of this week will
jump to record territory. Below is a table of some of the threatened
high temperature records.

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

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.
