Synopsis Fair weather conditions and warmer temperatures are
expected today. Another system will clip the area on Saturday, but
shower chances will be limited to the great basin, with only gusty
winds for the mojave desert. Drier and warmer conditions are
expected to start next week, but more unsettled weather is possible
later in the week.
Short term Today through Sunday.
The low pressure system that brought numerous showers and isolated
thunderstorms to the region yesterday has largely released its grip
on the region this morning, with only a few patches of light showers
across lincoln and mohave counties. These showers will weaken and
dissipate through the morning as they rotate under the departing
low. Today, a ridge of high pressure will quickly build across the
area bringing warming temperatures, clearing skies, and light winds.
Tranquil conditions will be brief as the another shortwave trough is
progged to lift across the great basin on Saturday. As this system
brushes our area, precip chances will spread across inyo, esmeralda,
nye, and lincoln counties. The east sierra will pick up more snow,
but accumulations are expected to be light due to a short window of
adeqate orographic forcing. Meanwhile to the south, conditions will
be cloudy and breezy windy as a belt of south winds develop across
the region Saturday afternoon. Gusts should fall in the 25-35 mph
range, with slightly stronger gusts possible across western mojave
desert. In the wake of the shortwave, a subtle cold front will slide
south across the region overnight Saturday bringing a light to
breezy north wind. Tranquil, warm weather will return on Sunday with
temperatures near or slightly above normal.
Long term Monday through Thursday.|
Ridging over the rockies high plains with troughing off the west
coast will place our forecast area within a broad southwesterly flow
aloft. This will lead to warming temperatures and increasing
southwest breezes for the first half of the week. Temperatures
Monday and Tuesday will climb several degrees above normal,
potentially reaching near 80 degrees in las vegas for the first time
this year. Southwest winds will become stronger and gusty on
Wednesday as the trough nudges deeper into the west and thermal
gradients tighten across the region. The pattern will be favorable
for downslope winds in the sierra owens valley and across the spring
mountains as well, with some light shower activity also possible
mainly in the sierra and southern great basin. More seasonable
temperatures look to return by the latter portion of the week as the
west coast trough pushes inland and a cold front drags southward
through the region.

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.
