Synopsis North winds will diminish this evening leading to
a cold night with freezing temps over much of the mojave desert
region. An area of high pressure will then hold the rest of the
week with dry weather, light winds and temperatures climbing
Update Clear skies and decreasing winds will provide for ideal
radiational cooling tonight with crisp morning temperatures
expected. Temperatures at this hour are generally running a degree
or two cooler than 24 hours ago, so suspect this will be the coldest
night of the week ahead and slightly colder than last night. The
forecast is in good shape and no updates are planned this evening.
Short term Through Wednesday night.
The main forecast concern is the gradually decreasing north winds
this evening leading to a cold night tonight with freezing temps
expected in the las vegas valley and much of clark county. The
lake wind advisory and red flag warning will remain in effect
the rest of the afternoon. There were a few spots in clark county
and near baker and yucca valley that dipped to the 32 degree mark
early this morning. Freezing temps will be more extensive in the las
vegas valley tonight, while southeast california may be about the
same as last night. Light winds can be expected Tuesday for most
areas though sustained 10-20 mph will continue along the colorado
river valley... Especially near laughlin-bullhead city. A swath of
high clouds is forecast to spread overhead Tuesday night which will
help raise temps a few degrees. Tranquil conditions continue
Wednesday with high temps probably held back from reaching their
potential in the valleys by inversions. Keeping temps lower than the
overly optimistic GFS mos values.|
Long term Thursday through Monday.
Models have a NW flow over the southwest Thursday transitioning to
more of a westerly flow Friday and then ridging over the weekend.
This pattern would tend to bring generally light wind conditions and
milder temperatures to the area along with occasional high clouds.
By Monday morning, models have an area of low pressure approaching
the west coast but solutions diverge beyond that. Since this is
beyond the official forecast period, will keep an eye on future
model runs as this time frame rolls into the official forecast
Aviation For mccarran... Gusty northeast winds will gradually
taper off early this evening, with light diurnal winds expected
early Tuesday and continuing through Wednesday. Scattered to broken
high clouds will begin to drift overhead Tuesday night.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Breezy northeasterly winds will continue through the
early evening before tapering off. A reduction in wind speed is
expected Tuesday, with light winds following diurnal trends at most
terminals. The exception is along the colorado river where north
breezes along with afternoon gusts up to 25 knots will develop
Tuesday.VFR conditions through the period.
Spotter information statement Spotters are encouraged to report
any significant weather or impacts according to standard operating

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.
