synopsis... .A strong disturbance will swing through the region
from the north on Friday and will bring another round of gusty
north or northwest winds. Strong winds are expected down the
colorado river valley Friday into Saturday. After a cooler pattern
Friday and Saturday, a warming trend will commence Sunday as the
disturbance pushes east. Dry conditions and the warming trend will
continue into the beginning of next week.

Short term... Today through Saturday night.

A broad trough of low pressure encompasses most of the conus
today. A tightening pressure gradient has brought windy conditions
to much of the area this afternoon, with up to 40 mph gusts
recorded in the las vegas valley. A shortwave trough will move
southward behind the developing surface low setting up around the
four corners area. This impulse will bring significant wind and
fire weather conditions to the colorado river valley beginning
late tonight. A wind advisory has been issued for this area
for Friday and Saturday. A red flag warning is also in effect for
this area due to the windy and dry conditions. Precipitation
associated with this shortwave should be limited to northern and
east central lincoln county, where some light rain is possible,
and dare I say, some snow flurries above about 6000 ft Friday
night. Temperatures for Friday and Saturday can be expected to be
around 10 degrees below climatological normal.

Long term... Sunday through Thursday.

Good model agreement is leading to fairly high confidence in the
forecast for the long term. A dry northwest flow will persist over
the forecast area Sunday through Wednesday with strong high pressure
just off the california coast. Temperatures will warm from near
normal Sunday to 5 or so degrees above normal for Monday through
Thursday. Some northerly breezes will stick around through the
period but overall not expecting anything near wind advisory
levels.

Aviation For mccarran... Gusty, north to northwesterly winds will
continue through around midnight when a brief lull in gusts and a
shift to the north northeast is expected. Winds increase and shift
back to the north northwest around sunrise Friday reaching speeds
around 15 knots gusting 20-25 knots for much of the day.

For the rest of southern nevada... Northwest arizona... And southeast
california... Breezy, north to northwesterly winds will continue into
this evening with gusts of 25-35 knots possible, especially across
the southern great basin. Strong northerly winds are likely to
develop down the colorado river valley late tonight and continue
through Saturday afternoon. The strongest winds are expected to be
on Friday in this area with gusts around 35-40 knots possible at
kifp and keed. Elsewhere, gusts will be be primarily around 25
knots.

Fire weather... Dry and breezy conditions are expected over much of
the forecast area for the next several days. Stronger northerly
winds will develop Friday and last through Saturday, particularly
down the colorado river valley, for which a red flag warning has
been issued. While critically dry conditions will remain into next
week, wind will decrease to well beneath red flag thresholds by
Sunday.

Spotter information statement... Spotters are encouraged to report
any significant weather or impacts according to standard operating
procedures.

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.
